Pine Hill Dairy (PHD) could be facing court action if it continues with plans to halve the amount  of milk bought from dairy farmers. This is the intent emerging from a Barbados Agricultural Society (BAS) meeting yesterday, at which representatives of the island’s 17 dairy farms expressed outrage at  a notice by PHD of plans to cut by 43 per cent the amount of milk it buys from them come Tuesday. Meeting at the society’s headquarters at The Grotto  on Beckles Road, St Michael,  some farmers said they would  file injunctions if the BAS board  did not. The meeting was punctuated  by accusations of Pine Hill Dairy favouring outside suppliers of powdered milk over local fresh milk, and there being a sinister plot against the local industry. (GA)
