Farmers for Action (FFA) protested outside Muller’s Market Drayton site last night.
Farmers used used tractors to blockade Muller’s Market Drayton site entrance to prevent lorries from getting through and shut down the site last night (7 August).
Muller hit back at protesters saying the protests made ’no sense whatsoever.’
Mr Handley said he was ’really pleased’ by the protests.
"With the weather, we were worried we might be short but we were not.
"At the peak, there were about 80 farmers there and there was plenty of farm equipment."
Mr Handley said there was an unexpected show of support from lorry drivers, beeping their horns in support.
He warned there will be more protests this week with Market Drayton likely to be targeted again along with another Muller site.
A spokesman for Muller said: “Disrupting a business with a track record for offering a competitive milk price to farmers and investing in the UK dairy industry makes no sense whatsoever.
"The organisers of this disruption are not suppliers and should not claim to represent the 1,900 farmers who do supply us.
"We will take whatever measures we can to protect our business."
Protests don't endear farmers to general public and do milk buyers really care if farmers protest t.co/HEqwx121lq— William Sherrard (@Greenvalelims)

@FarmersGuardian dairy farmers have cut production, as asked. It's supply/demand, milk is now short of supply. Price must follow closely— adrian boaden (@farmerade)
