The 2010 DairyCo Farmer Intentions Survey has revealed a small rise in confidence levels, in particular for those dairy farmers who are part of a dedicated supply chain. Though nine per cent of UK dairy farmers are intending to leave the industry within the next two years, equating to around 1,174 dairy farmers, 32% of farmers are planning to increase production. For the first time since the survey began in 2004, milk produced by dairy farmers planning to increase their production is expected to cover those leaving the industry.
