Plight of dairy farmers highlighted in new song

A song to highlight the plight of British dairy farmers struggling amid low milk prices has been released on YouTube.

Say Tara to Milk, by The Dobro Doctor, was written and recorded to raise awareness of UK dairy farmers at a time when they are being paid less for their milk than it costs to produce.

“Following on from the #SOS Dairy song, I was inspired to do another one following encouragement from Mick Priestley and Ed at Our Cow Molly,” said Toby Wilson, also known as The Dobro Doctor.

“I agreed to have another crack if Mick would help me along with ideas. Mick sent me an audio clip of a few ideas and it took off from there.

“A video accompanying the song has been launched on YouTube. Please help your local dairy farmers by choosing to buy your milk from a supplier that pays the producers properly. Else you will be saying tarra to them!”

The song is available to download on iTunes, priced £0.79p. To buy the song, visit the iTunes store and search for “The Dobro Doctor”.
