The raw materials crisis has had a significant impact on sustainable milk production. The increasing demand for feed crops to meet the needs of a growing global population, combined with the effects of climate change, has led to a shortage of key raw materials, such as corn and soybeans, which are commonly used to feed livestock. This has resulted in higher feed prices and decreased profitability for dairy farmers. Some potential alternatives include crops, such as peas, beans, and canola, as well as by-products from the food industry, such as brewers’ grains and distillers’ grains.
