Calls For Fairer Farming Prices
8:02am 4th January 2015
A south-east Cornwall farmer calls for the grocery watchdog to get more teeth after a crash in prices.
Martin Howlett keeps cows and sheep near Callington.
He told Pirate FM it is one of the big challenges for 2015.
The chair of the NFU in the south-west wants fairer returns for stuff like milk and meat.
He said: "We all have to live, we all appreciate that we're part of the food chain, but we have to have some fairness, and clearly in this last 12 months when the prices started to crash, there hasn't seemed to be that sense of commitment from the other side.
"We hope we can rebuild that confidence in our own industry, as businesses we need to make a profit, there is no point in continuing to farm year after year without having at least that hope of a profitable year, but we also need some fairness across the board."8:02am 4th January 2015
