Study on Milk Production Costs in Luxembourg

The European cost study by the Büro für Agrarsoziologie (BAL) was expanded in 2016 to include Luxembourg. For the first time, milk production costs for Luxembourg were scientifically recorded based on the Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN). The result: The sector shows a structural gap in cost coverage. For the entire study period (2009 to 2015), milk production costs remained significantly higher than income from milk prices. For the year 2015, the cost for a litre of milk was 44 cents, which implies 35% of costs going uncovered.
