Dairy farmers are due to have crunch talks with milk processors today as the stalemate over milk price cuts continues.
The two sides are set to meet at the Royal Welsh show in Powys after British farming ministers agreed to push them to back a new code of practice.
Last night more than 2,000 farmers took part in a third round of protests over the milk pricing crisis blockading plants near Bridgwater, Somerset, Droitwich Spa in Worcestershire and Market Drayton in Shropshire.
Dairy farmers have agreed the outline of a deal with processing firms to end a bitter dispute over milk prices.
Dairy farmers blockaded milk processing plants for a second night as they continued to show their anger at milk prices.
