UPDATE 31/08/16: Congratulations to Lisa Dwyer, Craig Dwyer, Kelvin Jackson and Harper Kilpatrick for being elected to the MG board and to all the other candidates for putting their hands up.
Murray Goulburn farmer shareholders will soon vote to elect new members to the board of directors. The dairy processor accounts for a huge chunk of Australia’s milk and tends to set the benchmark for the milk price, so its performance is important to most farmers in the south-eastern states.
The candidates have been touring the country to introduce themselves but since only a small percentage of shareholders attend the meetings, Milk Maid Marian offered this post as an added platform to help MG farmers make an informed choice.
The candidates were invited to answer two questions in a video that is three minutes or less:
Q 1: Tell us about you, how you farm and your roles outside the farm
Q 2: What would you work to change at MG if elected and why?
Three of the candidates, Lisa Dwyer, Raelene Hanratty and Harper Kilpatrick sent in their videos. Here’s your chance to learn a little more about them!
