The Milk Marketing Board
The National Farmers Union founded Milk Marketing Schemes in England and Wales in 1933, in Scotland in 1933-1934, and in Northern Ireland in 1955. The Boards sold milk for farmers, paying farmers in proportion to the milk that they provided. These continued until the abolition of the Boards in 1994.
The Milk Marketing Board archive contains minutes, reports, accounts, publications, photographs, and social and personal material relates to these Boards and their work.
A full description is available on our online database.
