    Farmers' leaders in the United Kingdom are warning of a potential catastrophe for dairy farming unless action is taken.

    Owing to the coronavirus lockdown, fresh products that would usually go to restaurants and cafes are being thrown away.

    Farmers are known for coping with the unpredictable, finding solutions in the worst of seasons.
