Deputy Minister for Agriculture Alun Davies has announced the Welsh Government's 'plan for milk'. Speaking before a question and answer session with famers at the Royal Welsh Show, he said a formal producers' organisation could strengthen farmers' hand in milk price negotiations. He called for UK government action to enforce the code of conduct agreed at Llanelwedd on Monday but repeated that he will also publish draft legislalion for Wales that could be enacted if necessary,
It follows a series of blockades by group Farmers for Action in protest of the prices they receive from suppliers for their produce.
Welsh dairy farmers said they won't strike during the Olympics but are prepared to protest again if milk processors fail to reverse cuts.
