Every farmer knows that each time we sell a litre of milk or send a cow to market, we pay some sort of compulsory levy or fee. But where does that money go and what does it do for us?
Well, the UDV has created a very lovely infographic to follow the money as it trickles down to a plethora of bodies. The biggie is Dairy Australia but there are plenty of others less familiar to the average milk maid.
The infographic is so chock-a-block full of useful information that it simply doesn’t fit on the page but I have lopped the right hand side off so you can get the gist of it. To see the whole thing, click on the link below.
The front follows the money and the second page explains our convoluted system of representation.
Bon appétit! For the next course, Milk Maid Marian will serve a short but sweet distillation of how DA spends our precious funds.
