Terry Toohey, Padura Park via Casino, welcomes increasing milk prices for the farmer but says the three major supermarket chains must come to the party and allow other sectors of the supply chain to make a living. "Consumers will pay more for their milk if they know that money helps the farmer," he said.

Demand for fresh milk from a burgeoning population in south-east Queensland is forcing up farmgate prices for those remaining producers and there is widespread confidence that prices will continue to rise in the near future.
