Dairy farmers need to get real on milk prices

Published 24/08/2015

Dairy farmers have got to get real and understand the basics of supply and demand economics.

They do not complain about low fuel prices for their vehicles. This is supply and demand economics in action.

Many dairy farmers own large swathes of land having done very well in previous times.

However, some families want to pay low prices for milk and other foodstuffs in order to feed their children.

The rich do not always understand the problems of the poor.
