The article reports that Morrisons' recent decision to follow other major British retailers and raise milk payments was welcome news for dairy farmer Mr. Chapman. This added an extra 0.2 pence per litre which, combined with an additional 0.5p/litre from Arla, brings the farm's current milk value to almost 27p/litre. However, he feels there is still room for improvement. The June 2008 increase was welcome, but milk prices should be achieving a consistent rolling average of 30p/litre, he said.
