RABDF are committed to influencing and lobbying on the biggest issues and raising areas of concern that may be effecting the dairy industry.

Our concerns for the next few years include continued access to skilled overseas labour in a post-Brexit UK.  It is vital to remember the needs of the dairy industry are very different to those of the horticulture and produce and even other livestock sectors because we have qualified, skilled overseas workers, people with degrees, vets and specialists.  An updated survey we have carried out shows increasing levels of reliance on this labour.
