Abstract The business of a dairy farmer is to supply society with dairy products in a way that provides him sufficient income and satisfaction. But he has to avoid farming practices hampering the rural area to deliver other valuable products, like clean drinking water, biodiversity, and attractive recreation facilities. The socio-economic objectives of farmers change, as do the wants of rural societies. The prices of land, feeds, fuels and fertilizers change while innovations to support farming become available. Consequently, a farmer has to adapt his farming practices to the changing reality. In this context, DAIRYMAN aims to strengthen rural communities in the regions of North Western Europe (NWE) where dairy farming is a main economic activity and a vital form of land use. DAIRYMAN will lead to a more competitive dairy sector, stronger regional economies, and an improved ecological performance of the rural area. DAIRYMAN is a project in the INTERREG IVB programme co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. The project is working at three levels: regional, commercial dairy pilot farms, and knowledge transfer centres.
