Dairy industry at risk of return to discount milk without government action argues NSW Farmers

More needs to be done by government for the protection of dairy farmers, argues NSW Farmers' dairy committee chair Colin Thompson.

Dairy might be in a good place now, but based on history there is no question that a return to discount milk prices is not a matter of if, but when. Unfortunately, the Australian Government has missed an opportunity to deliver real protection for dairy producers, argues NSW Farmers, who point out that the feds issued a watered-down response to a competition review just days before Christmas.
