乳製品輸出需要急増でも水価格高騰で縮小に向かうオーストラリア酪農

日本もいつまで輸入に頼れるか

Drought-stricken dairy farmers watch the river run by, unable to access it,ABC Rural,19.9.6

Australia's dairy farmers are leaving the industry in droves as drought and sky-high prices for water take their toll.

Despite surging export demand for products such as yoghurt and infant formula, Australia's dairy industry continues to shrink.

Even with milk at historically high prices due to its scarcity, that's beyond the reach of irrigators growing feed for dairy cows.

"When you've got input costs that have increased 250 per cent for grain, 25 per cent for fodder, then of course water in those irrigated regions, it's very difficult to make a margin, even with a pretty good milk price," dairy analyst Joanne Bills said.
