Support for Victoria’s dairy farmers

Comments from Peter Walsh, Leader of The Nationals and Shadow Minister for Agriculture:

“This is a good first step for the State Government to support our dairy farmers and their families.

“The next step will be to provide relief that eases the cash flow crunch for our dairy businesses.

“Farmers have raised with me this week the possibility of municipal rates relief, waivers for water charges and easily accessed low interest finance which would help ease some of the financial pressure dairy businesses are under.

“The Liberal-Nationals Coalition stands side by side with our dairy farmers and we will support all Federal and State initiatives that offer relief from this current crisis.”
