This report covers proposals to create a more competitive way of dairy farming in the municipality of Barcelos after abolishment of the milk quotas in April 2015. In the future these dairy farms will have to face with more heavy fluctuations of the milk price. Also fluctuations in the price of concentrate feeds are likely to occur in the future. This will probably lead to a decrease in the amount of dairy farmers in this region, a development which already has been going on for a long time. An intern and extern analysis of dairy farming in the municipality of Barcelos has been conducted. This analysis gave insight in the strengths and weaknesses of dairy farming in this region.
