The article focuses on the impact of low prices on the beef and lamb industry of Great Britain. National Farmers Union (NFU) president Peter Kendall notes that the prices further disrupt livestock farm incomes. An NFU report indicates that livestock farmers might be more prosperous once they drop cattle and sheep production. It discusses the possible consequences if beef and lamb production declines. Kendall states that a solution to the crisis is to redistribute the money in the supply chain.
