Australian dairy processor Brownes has played down concerns about a potential summer milk shortage following the recent announcement that its supplier, Lactanz, has gone into receivership.
Is this what our farming industry has come to. Another farmer in liquidation! What do our poor farmers have to do. They are given pittance for what they produce. If milk is $3.60 to buy the farmers should be paid $1.50 a liter not what they get now. If a lettuce is $2.00 to buy they should get $1.00 and so on. It's about time the Government and Bankers realised they are the back bone of our country and need help. They can't control the weather or other disasters. They are different and should be treated as such. If all the farmers united and did not produce, until they get their just deserves, where would we be.Report
Wake up Bankers and give our farmers the help they deserve.
