Where was the ADF support for dairy farmers back in April 2016?
Nobody from ADF spoke out against the Debt Clawback Schemes.
MGC and Fonterra dairy farmers should not trust anybody, including the ADF, but especially their own farmer-appointed Board Members.

Trying to pull a fast one, again: payments only to farmers supplying next year or committing to conditions. Fonterra’s 2015 trick was promising a high price to create greater milk production & sales, then reducing the price retrospectively at end of year once farmers’ had spent on sileage, water etc,. Wednesday’s promise isn’t “doing the right thing” to fix the 2015 abuse, otherwise all 2015 farmers would get the measly 40c. Processors clearly continue to manipulate farmers. A class action is being prepared by Adley Burstyner & Harwood Andrews (Vic’s oldest & largest rural & regional lawfirm)

Dead right, I just checked my kilo block of $7 Aldi Cowbelle cheese in the fridge, made in Australia. Big Aussie flag on the front.
So what point are you making about Aldi? Try checking before ranting.
RE, "Minister, Lisa Neville, has said she would continue to push for a comprehensive socio-economic review of the southern Murray-Darling Basin, at next week's Mildura ministerial council meeting" any review must be of the entire Basin and remember all buy backs were choice that is VOLUNTARY.
