Dairy con­fer­ence a suc­cess

Central and North Burnett Times - - YOUR WEEKLY TV GUIDE -

THE Queens­land Dairy Or­gan­i­sa­tion State Con­fer­ence has wrapped up for an­other year. Dairy in­dus­try re­search is lead­ing the charge with tech­nol­ogy. Theworld is send­ing pos­i­tive sig­nals about its in­creas­ing de­mand for milk and dairy prod­ucts, and the grow­ing Aus­tralian and Queens­land pop­u­la­tion will also be boost­ing de­mand do­mes­ti­cally for fresh milk and dairy prod­ucts. But in Queens­land the in­dus­try’s farm gate milk price does not re­flect the real value of fresh milk and farm­ers are be­ing sent the op­po­site mar­ket sig­nals to what would seem the case in the big­ger pic­ture. The QDO an­nual gen­eral meet­ing and re­search tour was an op­por­tu­nity for farm­ers to gather and dis­cuss these is­sues, and for the in­dus­try to chart a path for­ward.
