Dairy Farmers Label Cash Boost: "Too Little Too Late"
8:02am 15th July 2012
Cornish farmers being paid less for their milk say a five million pound government grant is too little too late.
The PM has announced the extra funding as processors cut the price they offer.
Mark Oliver who has herds at Lanhydrock says they are running at a loss and desperately need more help: "We are being given a price, not negotiated just told what it'll be, for our milk that is less than what it costs to produce a litre of milk; no-one can live with that for very long".
The St Ives' MP has been campaigning for a supermaket watchdog for years.
That is coming in and Andrew George and warns it MUST have teeth: "The problem is that the buyers have all of the shots. They control the market conditions and they're able to, at very short notice, change the way they establish contract prices with their suppliers".
