Dairy farmers protest over milk price cuts

Dairy farmers hit by a series of price cuts are taking direct action this week by protesting.

The amount farmers receive for their milk has been slashed each month for the last four months.

The average cost of production of a litre of milk is just over 30p. The typical price paid is now around 28p, down from around 35p in April.

Some farmers now face revenue losses of up to 25%.
