Representatives of twelve cooperatives in the sheep sector, which market almost 80% of milk production, have participated in a videoconference organized by Urcacyl. Two months have passed since the State of Alarm was declared. All the cooperatives in the sheep sector in Castilla y León, belonging to Urcacyl, have not stopped their activity. Its workers continue to shoulder their shoulders day by day to continue serving their livestock partners, (collecting their products and providing supplies, food and technical advice) for the benefit of farms, consumers and their environment.
In this period, the sheep sector has undergone and continues to experience, in part, significant difficulties in terms of suckling lamb commercialization, motivated by the closure of the HORECA channel.
Its workers continue to lean on their shoulders every day to continue serving their livestock partners, (collecting their products and providing supplies, food and technical advice) for the benefit of farms, consumers and their environment.
From the first moment Urcacyl, the cooperatives and the Ministry of AGDYR were launched to try to cushion this negative impact, messages were launched to society to promote the consumption of sucklings in homes, the problem was transferred to the Ministry and measures were designed that right now they are also in Brussels, to try to solve the problem.
Along these lines, a campaign has been launched to encourage consumption of this product in homes by the Junta de Castilla y León and INTEROVIC.
During the videoconference, the role of the processing industry was highlighted. The subscription of annual contracts, for sheep’s milk, which has been applied for two campaigns with known prices and volumes for the entire period, gives guarantees and security to our producers, and in this sense the message that is transferred from the Industrial is of absolute normality and tranquility in terms of compliance with them, collection and deliveries.
