Michael Davenport, a dairy farmer based in Market Rasen, says he needs to be paid two pence a litre more for his milk 'to break even', or four pence a litre more to make a profit. Michael is one of many farmers who has diversified and now produces cheese at his farm to survive.
"There are four supermarkets who are paying cost of production plus. The others are continuing to just tell the milk processors what they're paying, and that's not acceptable. If they want their liquid milk they ought to be paying a fair price. The feed I have to buy in has gone up by thirty pounds a tonne."
