Dairy round-tables to be unmissable, says UDV

DAIRY farmers are being encouraged to stand up and be heard at a series of round table discussions to be held across Victoria in December.

The meetings, being convened by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, will address industry concerns around the delivery of federally funded assistance measures for dairy farmers in the wake of the milk crisis early this year.

“All dairy farmers should take the opportunity to come to these meetings and share their views on the rollout of the Government’s package” United Dairyfarmers of Victoria President Adam Jenkins said.

“This is a chance for farmers to give feedback on the package, including any delays they’re facing in accessing emergency financial assistance, and let the Department know what is important to you.”

Mr Jenkins said the UDV was also continuing to support its members by appointing regional co-ordinators who were meeting with farmers and getting community feedback.

“We are increasing our presence across the State through regional membership co-ordinators so we can connect with farmers and show that we are here for them,” Mr Jenkins said.

“Our priority is to ensure that farmers get the support they need through any means necessary, which is why it’s also vital that if they have concerns about the assistance measures, they get along to one of these meetings.”

The roundtables will be held in the following communities, commencing 10.30 am:

  • North-East Victoria: Tangambalanga - Monday 12 December

  • Goulburn Valley: Congupna - Tuesday 13 December

  • Gippsland: Morwell – Thursday 15 December

  • South-west Victoria: Camperdown - Friday 16 December
