The dairy industry has been hit by a sudden shortage of horned dairy cows, leaving some wondering if the animals are being targeted for slaughter.
In a blog post Thursday, the RBR Dairy Industry said it is looking to expand its supply of horn-bearing cows and beef horns by introducing more products, including milk-based milk-milk products, to help alleviate demand.
“We are looking to increase production of milk-related products to address demand, and to assist with the re-emergence of horn production,” the company said.
The RBR dairy industry said it had sold 1.7 million tonnes of horn products, with the most recent shipment coming on Aug. 18, bringing the total to 6.3 million tonnes.
It said the demand has been a challenge to meet, with production at the Horns of Goolwara and Goolwa farms having dropped by more than 60 per cent in the last two years.
“It has become a challenge for our business,” said Sarah Rafferty, director of marketing and communications for RBR, in an interview.
“For the last year we have had to adjust to increasing milk demand.”
Rafferty said RBR has worked closely with dairy industry stakeholders and stakeholders in the agricultural sector to address the problem, including beef and sheep producers.
She said the Horn of Goota and Gootwa farms have been hit hard by the horn shortage, and the number of cows being slaughtered has been cut in half.
“As a result, we are seeing the demand for horn products and horn-based products increase significantly,” Raffer, who has also worked in the dairy industry, said.
“In fact, the demand is now up to 5.6 million tonnes per year compared to 3.8 million tonnes in the prior year.”
In an interview, Raffer said the company has increased the number and quality of milk products it sells, including its milk-lactose-free milk- milk products, but said the increase will not necessarily result in increased demand for milk-free products.
“I don’t think that will be an impact on the milk supply.
I think it will be a result of people choosing to be more active with the products that we sell,” she said.
Raffer said R&R dairy products had been a popular product in the past and had been the number one choice for dairy farmers.
But Raffer acknowledged there is a significant shortage of milk, and said there are also issues with the availability of milk.
“There is a lot of competition with other brands and I don’t see that improving any time soon,” she added.
“A lot of producers in the industry have gone back to the old models of making milk from a single source.”
The Horns Of Goolwas farm in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales, which has a population of around 2,500, has had no milk since the horn supply crisis began.
“This is a really difficult situation,” said the farm owner, who did not want to be named.
“We are not a big milk producer, and we are not very well managed.
We don’t have the infrastructure to get the product up there.”
R&=& ;R dairy, which produces dairy products from cows, also has a dairy business in New South South Wales.
The dairy company said it has had some supply problems, but did not say what they were.
“The Horn of the Gool was a dairy product and it is a very important product in New Zealand, but we are managing these problems with the industry,” said Lisa Taylor, director-general of the R&s.
R&s is a New Zealand dairy farmer.
R&s dairy has been producing dairy products for more than 70 years, and is a major producer of milk in the region.
Taylor said there has been some supply issues, but the company is doing a good job of managing them.
Ridery operations are also at a critical point in New York. “
They have been working hard and we’re happy with that.”

In New York, the dairy business is struggling.
The company is struggling to pay employees, and says it will run out of cash by September.
Ridership at the farm has dropped by half since the start of the horn crisis, according to the farm’s manager, Andrew Johnson.
“If you want to get a cow on the farm it’s going to be hard, and you need to get riders to help them,” he said.
“It’s a lot harder now because there’s no milk to go around.”
In New South Zealand, dairy farmer Michael McIlroy, a member of the Hunter Farmers Alliance, said there is no reason to believe that demand
