Survey to tackle labour problems

MILK producers and herdsmen are being urged to complete a survey to help find ways to tackle the industrys labour problems.

The study is part of an MDC/LANTRA-funded project being completed by Marden Management and independent dairy consultants Green & Kelly.

Their survey aims to determine the likely demand for labour in the dairy industry and skills required, so that more labour can be attracted to and retained within it.

MDC technical manager Brian Lindsay wants as many people as possible to respond. Those wishing to participate who have not received a questionnaire, can find one at www.mdc.org.uk or phone 01285-646500. &#42
