The Dairy Industry is Revolting!

Wed, 08/12/2015 - 13:12 -- Justine

Why are dairy farmers looking to increase milk production in an industry that is in decline? Should we be calling a halt to subsidies which would be better-placed helping farmers move over to growing arable crops?

This week cows were taken into a supermarket by angry dairy farmers protesting against the price they are paid for milk. About 70 farmers took two dairy cows into Asda, in Queensway, Stafford outraged that milk now costs less than some bottled water. It was a desperate stunt from farmers working in a failing industry.

The Government has now given the go ahead for exporters to fly calves to the Continent, paving the way for even more calves to suffer the terror of transport and the misery of a veal farm.
