22 July 2015 – Dutch dairy farmers’ campaign – ‘We go out again!’

IMG_0166This blog has been discussing the plight of UK dairy farmers (see posts on 16 and 31 January 2015) and Dutch dairy farmers in LTO Noord decided to raise their profile by displaying large posters (2m x 1m) on their farms – this one is on a farm gate in Otterlo – where the cows say: ‘We go out again!’ The aim is to show the important contribution that farmers make to the countryside – and make the link between friendly cows and milk! Nearly a thousand banners were ordered by farmers back in the spring and this one is certainly doing a good job of bringing attention to a struggling industry.
