When in doubt, bring in the cows.

That's exactly what a group of farmers did in the UK over the weekend. At their local supermarket in Stafford in the West Midlands on Sunday, the group of farmers decided to protest the amount the supermarket was selling their cows' milk for.

According to Mashable, around 70 protesters lead a pair of cows up and down the dairy section of the grocery store, where the farmers started to clear out the milk on the shelves.

It's clearly not everyday you see a pair of cows taking a leisurely walk down your local dairy aisle. The prices have been up and down all summer, but have currently been selling for much lower.

The average cost of producing a liter of milk is roughly $0.45, but Arla, the biggest milk co-operative, has been selling it for $0.36 per liter.

Police officers eventually escorted the protesters (and cows) out of the supermarket.
