This study examines and discusses recent and future developments in the EU dairy sector. Expected future market projections are discussed. Market impacts are downscaled to farm level, illustrated by quantitative effects on the Dutch dairy sector. Structural change appears to be an important factor for the sector to adjust and to maintain its competitiveness. Policy instruments are discussed which might help to get an improved soft landing and contribute to coping with price volatility
