UK farming unions: Dairy farmers must benefit from EU fund

Dairy officeholders from the UK farming unions have met to discuss the current dairy market situation and ensure that recent European developments benefit UK producers. The unions agreed a common position on ambitions for the European Commission's recently established High Level Milk Group and the urgent need for the UK to draw down its 29 million euro share of the EU's emergency dairy fund. Speaking after the meeting, NFU Dairy Board chairman Gwyn Jones said: "There is complete agreement between us that active dairy farmers should receive and benefit from this fund in the spirit that it was offered by the Commission-that is to provide some short term relief to milk producers in a year that has been dominated by falling prices".
