The article focuses on the decision by Arla Foods to cut its milk price, which staged a series of protests by disgruntled dairy farmers outside the distribution centers of the company in England. The latest cuts are believed to be linked to a drop in the retail price by supermarket group Asda. Farmers For Action have finalized plans for protests at Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire and one at Sheffield Park in East Sussex.
