A farmer’s campaign to raise the profile of the milk industry’s plight has received “immense public support” encouraging her to take it all the way to No.10 Downing Street.
Sally Dare, from Chard, Somerset, has been touring supermarkets with a group of young farmers dressed as dairy cows, raising public awareness to the supermarkets’ pressure on the dairy industry.
“I cannot believe the support we’ve had,” said Mrs Dare. “The public are on the farmers’ side and are disgusted with supermarkets – they don’t want to shop there but have no other choice.”
The group has appeared on national television and in many local newspapers, and will deliver a package of questionnaires completed by the public to the Prime Minister in the New Year.
