UK Cuts Milk Price, Minister Protects Farmers
After dairy farmers in the UK were suffering from price cuts for their milk, Jim Paice elected to do something about it. The farming minister plans to speak on behalf of those farmers who are being affected.
Farming minister Jim Paice will today call for speedy action to protect farmers from sudden cuts in the price of milk which, it is claimed, pushed some dairy farmers to the brink of bankruptcy.
Mr Paice’s comments, to be made in a speech to industry figures at the Dairy UK annual dinner in London, come weeks after the region’s dairy farmers were left furious at being given just four days’ notice by food firm Dairy Crest of a 10pc cut in the price they would be paid for milk.
