As the #DairyCrisis heads into a round-table between industry stakeholders and the Deputy PM I am reflecting on the last 8 months journey for dairy farmers
Excitingly out of the negatives can come so many positives especially if people analyse all the issues and directly address them with the aim of ‘putting the fight back in the dog’
And what a great segue that is to highlighting this wonderful initiative
Just yesterday this wonderful Facebook campaign started by a school in Vincentia on the NSW south coast who are selling bumper sticker they have designed to raise money for farmers appeared in my new feed. Check out Fight the $1 White here
The outpouring of #dairylove from the community has just been phenomenal
The grass roots driven initiative that just keeps on giving that has overwhelmed with its success is the Show some #dairylove Facebook page started by some very switched on and caring female dairy farmers from Victoria with the face of the page being Di Bowles.
In fact, it has been a life saver for some farmers
This site has helped turn my life back around. I’m very much a loner ………. My biggest social outlet is Facebook.
And eye opener for some follower members of the wider community who have not traditionally been supporters of our industry.
What I have seen (on this Facebook site) does reassure me that on the whole,
most dairy farmers are decent, caring and genuine people
I have so many favourite postings on the site and I would like to invite Show some #dairylove Facebook followers to identify theirs for me to showcase here
Here are some I have recently shared on my Facebook page
This one from Clancy Burn found here
I look forward to filling this page with highlights
