The Tokyo-based association conducted the online survey from June 9 to 14, receiving responses from 197 dairy farmers across the nation.
In the survey, 92.4% of respondents said their respective businesses had suffered financial difficulties over the past year.,
On business performance in the past month, 65.5% of respondents said their figures were in the red.
A total of 89.8% of respondents cited the weaker yen, followed by 85.3% who referenced the Ukraine crisis and 84.3% who flagged high oil prices.
