THE NETHERLANDS - Dutch dairy farmers have ended their protests against low milk prices. The farmers blockaded dairy factories for more than a week. On Wednesday a judge ordered an end to the last blockade and the protest offically ended at midnight.

The European dairy farmers association is meeting Friday in Berlin to discuss milk prices with large dairy producers. They will look into whether European price agreements can be made.

If the talks in Berlin fail to produce results, the Dutch dairy farmer's association says farmers will take to the barricades once again.
