    Default No Butter.

    Itís no good locking the stable door after the cow has bolted, (or was it a horse)?

    Lidl has had no butter in stock for a good while now and when they do itís gone in a shot.
    Grahams the family run dairy producer has been supplying their Aberdoyle brand of products to Lidl for a good while now, and good stuff it is too, but demand has been outstripping supply.

    Itís a shame that the UK supermarkets didnít show a bit more support to its UK producers sooner before many had to throw the towel in because dairy farming became unviable.

    I have just been reading a story about Shropshire dairy farmers are exporting milk to Qatar and getting up to £5.00 for 2 litres.

    Does not say farmers are getting £5 for 2 litres. That is the selling price once delivered not the buying price which might be 25p a litre.

    Correct Iain, but the retail price is much more realistic to the value of milk per cost of production and nutritional value, also farmers getting a more fair price for the work that goes in.

    They were in stock in Wick yesterday and I'm ashamed to admit that I did a bit of stock piling.

    I hope there's never a need to panic buy Kevin, you'll probably be the culprit that empties the shelves :-)
