This is all very nice for specific LIon suppliers but it does absolutely nothig for the wider community of dairy farmers.. Where are all the funds from other milk sales through the big 2 supermarkets? All the companies should have raised the farm gate price then there would be no need for this at all.

This is well-written, covers what's going on well. It highlights how wrong the processors thinking is and how out of touch they are with what's driving the on-farm dynamics and farmers actions. Right now when they should be supporting farmers so the milk production will be there in the long term, they do nothing - keeping profits on their side of the ledger while farmers go broke. Through all this, the processors are making money and good money. They fail to realize that you cannot build a strong business on weak foundations and those foundations are now crumbling.

What Dr Peters has neglected to consider is that a massive proportion of our global plant crop is fed to farmed animals. Funnelling huge amounts of plant protein through cows in order to produce a significantly smaller quantity of dairy protein is incredibly inefficient in terms of nutritional yield, land use & resource use.
Oxford research has found that while meat and dairy provide just 18% of the world’s calories, they produce more than 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions. Avoiding dairy & meat is the single biggest way to reduce our environmental impact: https://bit.ly/2xvx25d
