Milk deal sealed for 74 cents a litre

Possible November rise on basis of pecorino romano price

(ANSA) - Sassari, March 8 - A deal has been forged with milk farmers at price per litre of 74 cents, not far from the farmers' initial demand of one euro, sources said Friday.
    There have been weeks of protests by the Sardinian farmers who have repeatedly spilled cargoes of milk onto roads and streets across the island.
    The deal foresees a possible price rise in November on the basis of the market price of pecorino romano cheese, the parties said.
    The talks involved the farmers, the dairy firms and regional and government officials.
