YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE
IN THE LIFE
OF ONE FAMILY TODAY
WHY WE DO IT
Victoria's dairy farmers account for 85% of Australia's dairy product exports
In April 2016 two of the largest dairy companies, Murray Goulburn and Fonterra dramatically cut the payments to dairy farms. So much so the farms are losing money on every litre they supply. For many this will spell the end of their farms.
This crisis is affecting thousands of farmers, their families, employees and communities. Many of these now face an uncertain future. Since then NDP suppliers have joined their ranks after the collapse of the company. Many face never receiving payment for milk already provided.
Our volunteers are members of your community. Some are fellow farmers. some have left the industry but are still concerned enough to volunteer to help keep our farmers on farm where they belong.
