Re: Are some 'milking it'?

Not that I'm qualified to comment on economic matters but,isn't the problem oversupply of milk? If it is, some of these 'poor farmers' need to go out of business in order for the rest to make a half decent living.
I didn't hear of these 'poor farmers' protesting when the price of feed was rock bottom,now the price has rising their taking daisy the cow down to Asda

Re: Are some 'milking it'?

Farmers cannot just stop selling to supermarkets, if they did the farmer would be without a customer and the supermarket would buy elsewhere.

If (an "if") they are not paid enough to cover their costs and make a profit then IMO they should be paid more and I would.

Re: Are some 'milking it'?

Actually they could refuse to supply the Supermarket chains, in which case there would be no British milk at the supermarket. Sadly the British consumer has decided he/she does not care where milk comes from as long as its cheap.
We are lucky enough to have milkman who delivers local milk on our doorstep, but our neighbours........
We are all to blame for this, it did not happen overnight.

And the milk used to have a layer of cream on top - mad scramble in the mornings as my lads all wanted to be first to put milk on their cereals.
