Milk Production Partnerships



In the 1990’s, IFA was instrumental in researching forms of farming partnerships in Europe, particularly France (the GAEC system), and ultimately, together with other organisations like Macra, ICOS and Teagasc, persuaded the Department of Agriculture to provide Production Partnerships in the milk sector.

While the Milk Production Partnership (MPP) legal framework is demanding and restrictive, it offers farmers whom the formula suits advantages in terms of efficiencies, economies of scale, and last but not least, quality of life.

IFA has already obtained many improvements in the scheme and is committed to seeking further improvements.  IFA will also continue to seek other joint forms of farming which may suit more farmers.
