Milk Marketing Board

Milk Marketing Boards were producer marketing organisations established in the 1930's to preserve and increase incomes of farmers who produced milk, protecting them from the large dairy companies which had expanded and become more powerful. The National Farmers Union founded Milk Marketing Schemes in England and Wales in 1933, Scotland in 1933-1934 and Northern Ireland in 1955. The Boards sold milk for farmers, paying farmers in proportion to the milk provided by them. Farmers had to be registered with the Milk Marketing Board. Milk Marketing Boards were abolished in 1994.
