Philip Pearson has been a dairy farmer for over 25-years and his farm has been passed down through generations. Philip said: "The whole situation is a disaster, I have two young boys and I've told them to stay in school and get a job and not to work on the farm.

He added: "Soon there will be no farmers left."
