Germany: study on milk production costs

In Germany the latest results of the study on milk production costs show a shortfall of costs, with milk producers missing 22 percent to cover their cost of production. According to the quarterly figures published by the Farm Economics and Rural Studies Office (BAL) in January 2020 production costs amounted to 44.07 eurocent per kilogram, whereas the farm-gate milk price was 34.56 cent per kilogram in the same period. Commissioned by the European Milk Board and Germany’s MEG Milch Board, the Farm Economics and Rural Studies Office (BAL) started compiling comprehensive data on milk production costs in Germany in 2012 for the study entitled „What is the cost of producing milk?“. The calculation is based on data from the EU Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN) as well as the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), and has been updated every quarter since 2014.
