In some parts of the world dairy cattle live in sheds the food is bought to them
Here, every drought, we see food brought to our herds, doubt the average farmer is 80
In fact know plenty and they range from mid 30,s to mid 60,s
Retailers are in the end, cutting their own supply trail to pieces
We do not seem to care enough to stop it
A retailer opening up selling higher grade higher cost dairy products may do well

Some may not be aware that beef exports from this country began in
"... In 1879, the first successful frozen meat exports were achieved when 40 tons of frozen beef and mutton was shipped from Sydney to the UK aboard the Strathleven, arriving in good condition. Subsequently, the Dunedin, was fitted with a refrigeration plant and began carrying frozen cargo from New Zealand to England."
and not one US hamburger in sight; it seems that the hamburger was not invented until 1900 at Louis' Lunch.

The first beef cattle to come to Australia arrived in Port Jackson on the First Fleet in 1788 and they were also the first dairy cattle.

Ise Mise yes know too about cow pastures and those lost cattle
However hamburger trade started on the NSW coast dairy farms
No help to the subject however
During the 1960,s until the 1970,s for sure National party saw farmers got help in hard times
In Queensland even work on councils until things picked up
In our countrys interests to be doing much more of that right now
And sending water inland, as part of a one hundred year plan to improve our inland should have started yesterday

If the farmers can't make a go of it anymore then ScuMo should take the land away from them and give it to the Chinese gas fracking companies.

Talking of Gas Mr Opinion
Fact farmers once carried this country on their back [WOOL] and food production will do the same if we fix this problem
Chinese own a lot of our dairy production and processing right now
Much of NZ,s too
Future planning starts now, fixed price for milk , send storm water inland, recycle sewage, and pump rivers inland
The Jews turned desert in to growing land we must too

How is this for stupidity ?
Sth Aus is running a desalination plant while fresh water is running out to sea !
Gawd, it would be hard to find anything more stupid !
Not just pouring water into sea but pouring money into the sea.
Politicians should all be suspended placed in custody and sent for a sanity examination.
The GG could appoint a group of water and electrical engineers as a
government to sort out the problems.
