I'm not an Dairy farmer, I'm an IT professional and Arable farmer's son.
I think you are right the UK needs some co-ops creating - failing that partnerships with small businesses.
Lot's of problems in the way but I guess it is still doable - I just hope push hasn't come to shove.
If someone can market sausages as the "Black Farmer" as I saw in the co-op today I'm sure there's at least some space for the "Welsh Farmer", "Yorkshire Farmer", "Ashbourne Farmer".
Personally I think the biggest problem is age and know how, making a jump from farmer to processor with the energy to overcome obsticals.
At the moment I've started a website but I think this has given me the idea of trying a few other things as well.
We've all got to do something - a good marketing strategy might be "Sports Milk" - it was found recently that Milk is far better at helping recover from excercise than most if not all Sports drinks - leading to better muscle growth as well. Opportunities here to sell to the Army, Schools, Sports Clubs, Fitness Clubs etc.
As well as the Swedish the Dutch have successful co-ops yeilding to higher prices for their produce - remember the sugar beet price discussions recently ? There is lots of opportunity for UK farming we just gotta work together and get the job done.
