Milk price 'forces farmer to sell'
A North Yorkshire dairy farmer whose family has been producing milk for 25 generations has said he is selling up because he cannot afford falling milk prices.
William Lambert, based at the 200-acre (80 hectare) Raygill Farm in Hawes near Wensleydale, says he is putting his pedigree herd and dairy parlour up for sale.
Mr Lambert said: "You can't make money to support a family and make a living out of milking cows. I don't think any farmer really farms just for the money but you need to be able to make money."
Mr Lambert's farm supplies milk to the Wensleydale Creamery.
About 150 farmers protested outside the Arla Foods milk-processing plant at Stourton on Tuesday, calling for a higher price to be paid for their milk.
