“Milk Weekend" in Spain

You are here

Friday 7th and Saturday 8th of July the “Milk Weekend" took place, organized by the Holstein Association of Cantabria (North Spain) and Zoetis. The schedule included a Dairy Cattle Show and a Conference about dairy production future and the role of milk in human nutrition.

The main topic was the future of dairy industry in Spain and Europe, some participants were more optimistic than others; it seems that the future for European dairy producers is guaranteed, although some important changes in herd size and resources costs will happen. Big Spanish Co-ops presented their projects to improve milk production, they are based in recording data and monitoring the work and decisions made in farms.

On Saturday, the main discussion was about the role of milk in nutrition, how important it is in childhood and why adults should not stop drinking milk. Doctors in Medicine and Nutritionists participated with short communications and discussed about false myths of milk and its nutritionist characteristics.

It has been a very interesting and enjoyable event, thanks to the organizers!
