Dairy Farmers to Protest Actions Against Local Industry

Dairy farmers will demonstrate at three spots in northern, central and southern Israel, Monday, to protest a proposed lowering of the price of milk and opening of the market to imports.

Executive Director Ya'akov Bachar of the Dairy Cattle Growers Association warned Kol Yisrael government radio that an arbitrary political decision to reduce the payment the dairies pay the farmers will not make milk cheaper but just make the capitalists and importers richer.
