New agreement between dairy farmers and milk processors

Farmers and the milk processors agreed a voluntary deal which will mean contracts between them will be fairer and more transparent.

The agreement was made just hours after a huge protest outside a yoghurt plant where more than a thousand people,and their tractors, managed to stop some vehicles getting into the factory.

The farmers were angry that they get paid less than it costs to produce their milk.
