Farm and Food Photos September 7, 2015

Farmers steering tractors take part in a national demonstration on the Cours de Vincennes avenue near Place de la Nation in Paris, on September 3, 2015, to protest against the falling prices that they say are endangering their livelihoods. The protest comes after months of unrest as farmers in the dairy and meat industries become increasingly desperate in the face of plummeting food prices which they blame on foreign competition, as well as supermarkets and distributors.

Dairy farmer Angel Vicente pushes cattle feed for cows at a farm on September 1, 2015 in Fuentespreadas, near Zamora, in Spain. Many farmers are losing money from the production of milk due to falling prices and cheap foreign imports. Dairy farmers are being forced out of business as they face problems with access to a salary and difficulties paying suppliers of food, mechanical and veterinary services, despite long working hours. At least 500 farmers are expected to take part in a protest march that started in Leon and will arrive in Madrid on September 4, where they will demonstrate outside the ministry of agriculture.
