Organiser: Wageningen University & Research

The Milking to Potential (M2P) short course is for seasoned dairy professionals. Dairy sectors all over the world are challenged by expanding populations and economic growth. Growing demand for dairy products has led to a significant increase in public and private involvement and to new opportunities for a range of stakeholders. This 2 weeks course will enable participants in designing and implementing dairy development strategies in emerging economies.

Designing sustainable and profitable dairy systems: The Netherlands has a recognized role on dairy development and innovation worldwide and during this course you will have the opportunity of better understanding and interact with its private, public and educational sectors.

You will be surprised to discover that the variety of the Dutch dairy systems not only includes high-tech high-input farms with annual production of over 10 thousand litres of milk per cows but  also farms with local breeds, goats called by name and the only commercial camel dairy farm in Europe. We will discover how a farmers develop and adopt innovation based on their own preferences, moving between conventional and organic, on farm processing or fluid milk, short chains for local market versus industrial value chains and export.
