Paris: 2000 dairy farmers from France, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland

At a conference in the afternoon, the cabinet director of the French minister of agriculture, M. Pascal Viné, as well as a lot of journalists could listen to the dairy farmers explaining how bad the farm gate milk prices and so the situation of the farms are and what simple and very effective solutions are proposed.
