Farmers have taken to their tractors in protest. Certain supermarkets (including one started by farmers as Associated Dairies) have used their power to drop the price of milk paid to farmers to less than the cost of production. I used to be able to name at least twenty local farmers who milked cows. I don’t think any are left in Hertfordshire and I think only one in Essex…
Everyone wants cheap milk
Cheese and yoghurt they can afford
If some supermarkets have their way
It’ll all come from abroad.
