Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with the finance, industry trade and labor, and agricultural ministers Sunday in order to discuss recommendations made by special committee on examining current milk prices. The committee had recommended to lower prices by eight percent, but had not agreed on the proper way to do so, Army Radio reported.

Meanwhile, hundreds of cattle farmers protested outside Netanyahu's Jerusalem office, saying the government should not lower unpasteurized milk, the only milk under government supervision, as part of the overall price cut of 8%.
