My heart sank.
Please say it isn't so!
As most of you would know, I come from a farming family.
I blogged about it not long ago...here. Please take a look if you haven't already.
My family went out of dairying after 3 generations about 10 years ago.
Just recently my brother convinced my dad and uncle to give it another go.
It's in his blood, he missed it.
And now the supermarket milk price war is another looming threat that he, nor any other farmer, deserves.
My brother, Greg, has written about it from a farmer's point of view on his own blog.
It is here, please read it.
And this was on Sunrise recently and may give you further insight into the whole mess.
I don't know if the consumer can do anything, really.
We are all strapped at the moment, trying to save ourselves a few cents here and there.
It's not us, it's the big companies that need to STOP IT!!
This is the livelihood of so many families.
This is not a game.
If you took the time to read, I thank you.
Just knowing the real story is important.
Do not believe the supermarket commercials!
The farmers WILL be affected!
