Progress for Lincolnshire dairy farmers

Friday, July 27th 2012 15:12

Dairy farmers fighting for a fair price for their milk, have won a small victory.

2 of the three big milk processors have agreed to scrap a planned 2 pence cut in the amount they'd pay farmers....

It's after weeks of protests at bottling plants and supermarkets.

NFU President Peter Kendall said: "Farmers, their families and shoppers have supported this campaign to see a fair price paid to our dairy farmers. It has been an amazing show of strength and support.

"I believe only with all areas of the supply chain playing their part can we turn this situation around. I am committed to ensuring our dairy farmers have a secure future and we will continue to work extremely hard on the challenges that lie ahead.”

The dairy coalition will meet again in a week’s time.
