EU milk reduction plan: What about the diet?

There used to be a time when milk producers were focused on squeezing as much milk out of a cow as possible. But today, EU farmers are being rewarded to produce less milk. Does this change the attention payed to nutrition of these high performing animals.

The global dairy industry and relevant stakeholders have not yet finished talking about the current milk prices, the EU milk reduction plan, the phosphate regulations (for example in the Netherlands). Market prices have always been in the lead to say whether the dairy industry is doing well or not and whether we produce too little or too much.
