To be fair I'd only seen pictures, workman had seen the TV coverage. Was that fact made clear?

Dealer sent or farmer sent - it's a bit of a stupid thing to do.
But then again, what do you expect ? :roll:
Got to look good on telly - flashing lights, twin twigs etc.
It won't take long for the press to cotton on.

My old 6170 was there somewhere.

Then it moved to Morrisons distribution depot. So I'm told.

never mind the value of tractors

contractors are there as they rely on dairy farmers & ultimately milk price

Promar, Andersons et al all work out costings & sometimes it's more economical to use a contractor with an expensive Fendt than a cheaper Ford/MF etc

You know that, I know that but the public doesn't.
As with any PR work, it's the details which have to be done correctly and unfortunately I fear the NFU and these action groups will F*ck it all up.
At a party last night, the feeling I got was that once more, "Those moaning f*cking farmers are now going to try and starve us of milk during the Olympics"
I put them in the picture but that was only a handful of people.

If I were a gambling man I would predict the outcome to be that the supermarkets will stop the proposed further cuts and bring the price just under or on the level where you will continue to break-even or run at a slightly lower loss.

The message is not clear enough and the angle of attack is wrong IMO and you will lose any public support you have gained because they are going heavy on the militant route and not the information/social media route.

Thanks to that policeman at Leeds last night for the quote of the year:

"All still standing here in five minutes time will get arrested" ... so everyone sat down.

Bloody good quote. Totally true. Sadly indicative of the way things are run.

Two F*cks and a C*nt.

He gets my vote. 8)

Isn't it funny how the Police wade in when tax-paying workers protest (Hunting, Milk etc) yet when scrounging Pikey scum or Dust Spooks start protesting, they do fuck all. :roll:
They hear it thousands of times but I wonder why ? "Why don't you go and catch some real criminals?"
Why ?
Because its too much fucking effort, thats why.

We have a competition authority over here and for years they only people they prosecuted were farmers protesting about brokers manipulating the market by importing at harvest and other farmers blockading a milk plant . The farmers were fined €250000 that the Association paid .
Why is there only one competition authority. :!: :!:

R&R weekend for the coalition before continuing the NFU/FFA campaign next week.

Momentum is continuing with this fantastic SOS Dairy Anthem

http://youtu.be/HG9Fr02efuo

A tribute to everyone fighting for fairer milk prices for British farmers during summer 2012.

This song is written and performed by The Dobro Doctor (has a dairy farming brother) the video features outakes and unused footage shot for FW during July 2012 by Johann Tasker


It can be downloaded from http://soundcloud.com/the-dobro-doctor/ ... radio-edit for downloading and use however you like.
It was played last night at local Yfc "Do in the Shed" & 3 times at Penrith Show.

Spread the word!


TUUUUNNNEE!!!!!!

:D

I have to say that it is a bloody awful tune but it does grow on you.
More to the point, rather than congratulating themselves for getting the price not to drop any worse than it is, shouldn't the dairy farmers be continuing to educate the public and get them onside as this is the only thing that is making the supermarkets and producers listen ?

Everything is starting again tomorrow.
The #SOSdairy Song is starting to get air-play - was on BBC Radio York this morning. 8)
Things certainly haven't been sorted - Arla's & most probably Wiseman & Dairy Crest's 'price drop reversal' hasn't happened - they've just passed on 2p's worth of the supermarkets price increase .. & calling it their contribution! :x

You'll hate this version! http://soundcloud.com/the-dobro-doctor/ ... ersons-mix

But that's because you're not down-with-the-kids! :lol:
