Alternative Processing Agreement

The dairy produce quota is set to be scrapped on 31 March 2015. New challenges in a new playing field. Although there will no longer be a dairy produce quota, there will be new dairy cattle legislation and responsible dairy farm development requirements. From 2015, the percentage of farmers’ manure surplus that they have to process will be increased further. Cattle farmers who do not (yet) process manure and are able to adequately store their surplus manure in their local area can now enter into an Alternative Processing Agreement (Vervangende Verwerkingsovereenkomst (VVO)). In 2014, we started brokering APAs. Due to a lack of supply, it was a difficult operation initially. We can now supply from stock, and business has picked up. Many cattle farmers apparently want to enter into an APA on time to avoid being without one at the end of the year. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
