LAA support for GB Dairy Calf Strategy

9th April 2021

The GB Dairy Calf Strategy 2020-23 recognises the potential and responsibility for further improvement throughout the supply chain.

The live auction ring continues to adapt and re-shape marketing opportunities as the marketplace develops and has greater ability than other marketing channels in the UK to provide a market for all types, breeds, age and size of calf, ensuring the best returns for the producer.

Collaboration is key to delivering against the priorities of the strategy, which will require a joined-up approach across industry.

The Livestock Auctioneers’ Association is pleased to support the GB Dairy Calf Strategy. Here, the LAA summarises its support for the strategy, and the steps being taken by its members to ensure dairy bred calves are utilised in the food chain.
