Dairy farmers on Anglesey are set to discuss the latest developments in the dairy industry, when they meet on Thursday, 27 April, at The Bull Hotel, Llangefni.
The meeting, which is open to everyone with an interest in dairy farming, has been arranged by the Farmers’ Union of Wales Anglesey branch and will start at 7.30pm.
Heidi Williams, the FUW’s Anglesey CEO, said: “We have arranged this meeting for everyone who has an interest in dairy farming to join us for the evening, so we can discuss a way forward for the industry.
“The dairy industry is facing some challenges that need to be overcome, including low farm gate prices, bovine TB, CPH rules and regulations and we want to hear your thoughts, concerns and ideas about the current state of the dairy industry.
“Our dairy farmers have suffered quite a bit with low prices over recent years, many producers have seen their milk cheque cut in half and often find themselves having to deal with unfair contracts. The unfortunate truth is that they will have to cope with extreme price volatility in the future and that’s why we want to discuss a way forward with farmers.”
