A profile of the milk price crisis so far – pre-election. Includes a trip to the Houses of Parliament, another farm and experimenting video on the iPhone.
Dairy farmers have been hit by industry-wide milk price cuts month on month throughout the year, with some farmers being paid as little as 20ppl. Processors have not only lowered payments but also delayed them to farmers.
I profile the issue, talking to dairy farmers, businesses, consumers, and DEFRA to see what’s next for British milk.
