The Dairy Industry Report was published in July 2014 and can be read here.

There are 15 dairy farms on Guernsey which together keep about 2,500 Guernsey cattle and farm just under 8,000 vergees of land for dairy production.

Cattle can only be imported from Alderney and Sark so that the Island dairy herd consists entirely of the Guernsey breed. For more information on the import and export of cattle, follow this link.

Milk production is subject to a milk supply contract and a quota and unless approval is otherwise given by the Agriculture, Countryside and Land Management Services, all milk production must be sent to Guernsey Dairy where it is processed and packaged. Milk sent to the Dairy is subject to certain rules of supply.

Dairy farmers may also enter into a farm management contract with the Agriculture, Countryside and Land Management Services. In return for a farm management payment, farmers must implement a farm biodiversity action plan and comply with other requirements on good farming and agricultural practice, stocking density, farm waste management and animal welfare.

The Agriculture, Countryside and Land Management Services provide a number of services to farmers. Follow this link for further information.
