Okay, so here’s the thing: Milk Maid Marian readers are asking whether I have invited MG to write a guest post following on from the Light at the End of the Tunnel pieces contributed by ADF and Fonterra.
The answer is “Of course!”. I try to make Milk Maid Marian as balanced as possible, so invited ADF, MG and Fonterra each to contribute an (unedited and complete, as usual) guest blog that would give farmers some hope.
Unfortunately, after much discussion, an MG spokesperson said the co-op couldn’t offer anything at this time or say when it might be able.
I know the co-op is going through a really rough time at the moment and dearly hope the MG board and management soon do find light at the end of the tunnel.
And when they do, there’s always an open invitation for the co-op to discuss the future of Australian dairy here.
