Re: Germany's dairy farmers on strike!


I can't believe how poorly reported the strike has been in the press. To date, not a mention of it in Farmers Weekly or Farmers Guardian. Any ideas why?

Because it's no good for the people in power!

The Farmers Journal over here did do a half page spread on it though.

The strike was nearly useless! After ALDI decided only to rise the price for fresh milk and not for butter all other supermarket chains cancelled their price increases for butter.
As fresh milk is only a small part of the market there will probably be only a few creameries profitating....
In the end we've put our own milk 7 days in the slurry pit and will receive nothing for it. emoticon

Not for nothing svennis. You have shown that there is a collective will to take drastic action, the dairies & supermarkets will have taken note. That will be a useful tool/threat in future price negotiations.

Well done to you all. emoticon
