"They [super dairies] will fill a market for milk that is produced in vast quantities and is cheap to collect but there will be a backlash from consumers so maybe they will be best selling their milk into processing rather than into liquid markets," he told the Farmers Guardian. "It is probably good news for organic farmers because one of the organic standards is that cattle have to graze. Anything that raises consumer awareness of organic farming is good. "I think it could also open the door to a free range milk brand as well, something which is probably long overdue."...
