Germany: demand for hay milk rises

In Germany the demand for hay milk rises. In the southern state Bavaria, the private dairy Allgäuer Hof-Milch has contracted 41 dairy farms to deliver hay milk. The dairy had already 62 farms delivering hay milk. Hay milk comes from cows that among others in winter get traditional (dry) hay, in summer they are on pasture, according to EU regulations. Austria has extra conditions for hay milk which also have to be met when exporting German hay milk to Austria. To meet the extra Austrian hay milk conditions, year round it is not allowed to feed silage to cows, in cubicle barns every cow has to have a cubicle available, and the cows have to have at least 120 days a year entrance to pasture.
