Four farming unions met today for an emergency summit amid widespread supermarket protests across the UK about "unfair" milk prices.
They say that government, retailers and the food service industry must "step up to the plate" to tackle the crisis facing the British farming industry.
Speaking after the summit, David Handley of Farmers For Action said "I don't think there's any farmer out there at the moment that will accept they can just sit back on their laurels."
The meeting follows days of protests by farmers including Milk Trolley Challenges, blockades at distribution centres and even bringing cattle into supermarkets.
Farmers estimate that it costs between 30 and 32p to produce a litre of milk but the average price paid across the UK is 23.66p - following a drop of 25% in a year.
Meurig Raymond, president of the National Farmers Union said farmers were facing "all the risk in these extremely volatile times".
Scotland's Secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and the Environment called for widespread support of the dairy industry.
The four main unions, the National Farmers' Union, NFU Cymru, NFU Scotland and the Ulster Farmers Union, met today in central London to discuss the "crisis".
