Farmers hit hard by milk prices cuts, says NFU Wales

A dairy industry leader in Wales has called for more fairness in the business following a dramatic drop in the price farmers get for their milk.

Some farmers will have experienced a 10p a litre drop in the price in the 10 months to Christmas.

Aled Jones, National Farmers' Union's milk committee chairman, said that could cost farmers £100,000 if they were producing 1m litres of milk.

Two independent inquiries into the industry's future in Wales are due to report in 2015.

Nia Thomas reports for BBC Radio Cymru's current affairs programme, Manylu.
