Dairy farmers to rally at Parliament House for better deal

Queensland dairy farmers and their supporters will rally outside Queensland parliament house today to call on retailers to put an end to the $1 milk price war and to set a sustainable price for fresh milk that provides a sustainable return to dairy farming families right across the nation.

Queensland Dairyfarmers’ Organisation (QDO) President Brian Tessmann states “The best way for Queenslanders to support local Queensland dairy farmers is to buy branded milk and dairy products as it adds value to the product and ensures our farmers are paid the fair price at the farm gate they deserve.”
