VIDEO: Dairy farmers threaten protests if talks fail

Protests over milk prices will be stepped up if talks fail to deliver a better deal, farmers have warned.

A crisis meeting was attended by more than 400 farmers and members of the supply industry attended at Holsworthy, Devon, on Wednesday (24 April).

Dairy farmers are still not getting a fair return for the risk and work involved in producing milk, the meeting was told.

Farmers at the meeting said they were not looking for an increase in the price of dairy products. Instead they want a fairer share of the retail margin.
