Netherlands fined for too much milk

Thursday 18 October 2007

The Netherlands has been fined almost €9m by the European Commission for producing too much milk in the 2006/07 season.

Dutch farmers broke their official milk quota by 0.3%. Italy got the heaviest fine of €176m for a 6% over-production.

The fines were introduced to reduce the European milk lakes, but there is now a worldwide shortage of milk, news agency ANP says.

    this is what’s wrong with the internets. I tell myself this will be the last page I look at before turning to work, and then I see a phrase like “European milk lakes” – ??? now it’s off to Wikipedia and you know where THAT leads.
