Lat­est on dairy farm­ing

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - News -

ABOUT 100 dairy farm­ers from across the state con­verged on Toowoomba this week for the Queens­land Dairy­farm­ers’ Or­gan­i­sa­tion fo­rum and an­nual gen­eral meet­ing.

QDO pres­i­dent Brian Tess­mann said the fo­rum was all about get­ting farm­ers up to date on the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in the in­dus­try.

There was plenty of in­ter­est from farm­ers thanks to re­cent shake-ups in the in­dus­try and a de­sire to hear more from ACCC Agri­cul­tural Com­mis­sioner Mick Keogh about progress on the dairy in­quiry.

The event was also a chance for farm­ers from far and wide to catch up so­cially.
