Example text

Brittany is the region where dairy production has grown the most rapidly in recent years. Dairy quotas were sure to interfere with the modernization process reflected by that growth. Thus BrittanyTs farm organizations were adamantly opposed to quotas. Their sense of solidarity is heightened by their common recent history. Twenty years ago, Brittany was still an area of fragmented farms and low yields. e. a technical, economic and social revolution. Farms are still relatively small, but they are very intensive.

Incidentally, it may be because there was no solution to such a problem that eventually dairy quotas appeared unavoidable. On the government side the main actor was of course the Minister of Agriculture, supported by his administration. Other ministries, particularly those of Foreign Affairs and of Economics, were also involved. The President of the Republic himself played an important role. Thus, the main actors involved in the process are classified in three unequal categories: Farm organizations, other Economic Organizations, and Government Agencies.

In the last few years the organization attempted to protect the modernization process of the French dairy production sector. Conscious that growth in production could not continue for ever at the same pace, they had tried over the last few years to "buy time", to allow French producers to catch up with their more efficient competitors from Northern Europe. This explains why the FNPL was in favour of limiting the entry into the Community of cheap feedstuffs such as cassava, which their competitors, located close to major harbours, could use to better advantage.
