From Somerset to Melbourne, Charlotte Smith hears how heavy rain around the world is resulting in farmers losing crops. The Met Office has confirmed that this month is due to be one of the wettest Junes on record and there's more unsettled weather forecast for July and August.
And, it's expected that dairy farmers will be told to expect a cut of up to 2 pence per litre in the price they're paid for milk. While the large dairy processors won't comment on any cut, and say talks with producers are ongoing, milk industry analyst Ian Potter tells Charlotte why the price change is inevitable and how a further cut will result in more dairy farmers throwing in the towel.
