DO­ING IT TOUGH:

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - FRONT PAGE -

‘The Board and man­age­ment ac­knowl­edges the im­mense im­pact of (the April 2016) an­nounce­ments.

We are all dis­ap­pointed by what has re­cently tran­spired and we know that it is un­ac­cept­able to our sup­pli­ers.

We un­der­stand how this ef­fects your farm busi­nesses par­tic­u­larly the late­ness of the changes when many of you have al­ready been deal­ing with poor sea­sonal con­di­tions.

On be­half of the Board, I would like to ex­tend my thanks to sup­pli­ers for the way you have en­gaged with us in a con­struc­tive man­ner de­spite your un­der­stand­able dis­ap­point­ment.’

Whorouly dairy farmer Rod New­ton has a mes­sage for the Mur­ray Goul­burn board which wants him to pay back $400,000 over the next three years with in­ter­est as a part of the com­pany’s funds claw­back. Farmer-share­hold­ers of the co-op­er­a­tive are deeply con­cerned about the way in which the busi­ness has been man­aged.
