Some new businesses in the old dairy processing enterprises in a row near the plant, contrary to the National Development and Reform Commission on the dairy processing enterprises should be more than 60 km away from the relevant provisions, and only charge the milk not to pursue the milk source base. In addition, since 2007, developed a number of dairy cows has dropped substantially, some countries have restricted exports of milk powder, milk powder on the international market prices rise, so that the number of China’s imports of milk powder decreased, also contributed to the causes of insufficient milk.

Raw milk price “fever”, or the loss or raise prices milk enterprises

Wang Yinsheng said Hebei milk purchase price has now reached 2900 yuan / ton, compared with last year, more than doubled. By feed costs push up milk prices is normal, abnormal milk, some dairy companies looting exacerbated price increases. Although it is Milk Sales of off-season, but the manufacturers of quality milk vendors is fierce competition for comparisons of the acquisition increases.

Nothing wrong with the pursuit of benefit farmers, but also a result of three deep-seated problems highlighted: first processing season, the milk shortage, companies hungry; Second, when processing off-season, non-corporate members of the farmers not to sell milk, restricted dairy processing enterprises in particular, who is a dairy farmer; third processing season, the parties compete for orders for milk, regardless of the quality of some enterprises, there is often a number of product quality and safety worries.

“To prevent tension in the case of milk, dairy companies signed ‘Baotuan’ lower milk price, resulting in damage to the interests of dairy farmers.” Wang Yinsheng said. Dairy situation shows how large groups of farmers into the business cooperation, to work closely with members of the enterprise, to become parties to explore the important issues. BOLA TANGKAS
