86% of Connacht consumers have confidence in dairy farmers and climate change

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Almost 9 in 10 consumers in Connacht have confidence that Irish dairy farmers will make changes to achieve climate action targets.

The findings are from a survey of 1,500 adults nationwide by the European Milk Forum.
