I've got nowt to do with dairy, well not for many years.
I've tried to follow what was happening but from an outsiders view, i can only summarise it up that DFoB has been run by a bunch of kids who have been hiding everything that they have broken and now are trying to cause a distraction while they make for the exit.

Or have i read it wrong ?

A very sad and sorry state of affairs,I too feel sorry for the producers caught up in this unholy mess. :(

The bank would appear to have acted in the way they usually do when the chips are down,their wheelling and dealing make a hoss dealer seem like a gentleman,the slimy toads. Image

Its going to cause a lot of hardship around here.
One of the chaps that I was silaging with today has lost his milk cheque.
I've lost all the money I had tied up in it.
It was run by people who thought they were cleverer than they actually were.
I hope they hang their heads in shame and never get put in a position of responsibility again.

As i have said, i have no idea of the real 'ins and outs' of the situation, but it seems, from what i can glean' that it was a good idea that was ruined by incompetancy and greed.
Theres no way those people will hang their head in shame. Why would they ? They've had the best of it....

Well, its no good moping about it. Its not going to be easy but i am sure you will re-group and sort something out. I hope you all pick yourselves up and move forward stronger than ever.
Good Luck to you all ! 8)

Dont know nothing bout the dairy industry, but this looks a mess that folks were predicting for some time. Seems to me that suppliers were locked in on contract and could do nothing but continue to supply milk and hope they got paid, until the company folded as it has now done and left everyone in the lurch.
Is this correct?
And we continue to import milk I think, madness.

My sincere sympathy to the innocents caught up in this.

The Farmers Guardian are running a petition,don't know how much good it will do for the dairy industry.

I am not involved in dairying and have never had much to do with it in the past but have still signed it.Image
