Llywd, of course it. The cow on the bottle has a yorkshire accent, too.
Seriously, I know what you mean, and - yes it is British.

Excellent. I must confess I have an interest because I have farming relatives.

It is very sad to read of this plight that the hardworking farmers are experiencing.

It is a shame a big campaign couldn't be launched to encourage the public to use more milk.  Personally, I hate milk on its own but would be willing to buy more to use in recipes, such as quiches, rice puddings and buy more milk based products. etc.

Perhaps if there was such a campaign all of us together buying more would surely add up and help the farmers get through this worrying time? 
Such a waste and how awful to have to pour their milk down the drain.   :-\

A good chunk of the problem is the low prices supermarkets pay for the milk. Neighbours who buy plastic containers of milk pay tiny fractions of what I pay - and have always paid - for my valued doorstep deliveries. Just glad I can afford to do it.

Absolutely TY. We have been having doorstop delivery of milk & eggs from a Glasgow based firm for several years; they assure us that the milk itself is from local farmers who get a fair price as there is no middle man. And yes we pay more but if it goes to the farmers that's fine by us and supermarket milk is far too subsidised with the farmer's who work so hard getting hardly anything for their time. . The deliveries have always been on time & through all sorts of weather. I don't think the firm were able to take any new customers when the demand for home delivery went up last month so pleased we were established customers. Mr Josey grew up on a general farm which had dairy cows amongst other things, also his school had a home farm, so he is a milk fiend; we have 4 x 4 pints let's get modern 2 L a week for 2 of us.

As I lived there, I was brought up on raw untreated milk! People today would be amazed we survived, but apart from the threat of unfortunate things like tuberculosis and brucellosis, we all did!
Let's hear it for the Milkmen of Britain!!

I made myself a bowl of semolina for breakfast this morning to "do my bit" to consume more milk. Yes, daft and probably pointless, I know. I don't think I'll be making semolina for breakfast again though!

What did you put with Trystan, semolina on its own is a bit bland, you need a good dollop of something sweet with it.  Strawberry jam is my preference.

We are very lucky to live in an area where the chain of suppliers for food can be very short.

I still get my eggs from my usual supplier. There's a cupboard with a perspex door, and you put your money in the honesty box, then check that none of the hens have wandered under your car. Sometimes the eggs are still warm. Much superior to a supermarket where "New Laid Eggs" can be over a month old.

We have a regular milkman. He had to leave us one bottle short a couple of weeks ago so that he could get another regular added to his round, but he knew we would understand. Should he fall ill, or we have an unforeseen demand, a farm a mile away sells raw untreated milk, again with an honesty box.

The west of Lancashire is proper market gardening territory. I have relatives who grow tomatoes for a living, and others who specialise in salad leaves. People buy "Ruffords" or "Ormskirks" rather than quoting a potato variety, though the people selling them always know should you ask.

I'm not sure I could cope if I lived in a city with my diet constrained by what Tesco's or Sainsbury's decided they would let me buy.
