Agriculture Minister Bridget McKenzie told Andrew Williams it’s designed to make things fairer.

“The main reason farmers need the mandatory code of conduct is to ensure they can have confidence in the milk price they are getting paid by the processor at the farm gate.

“We need to now have a tough conversation with supermarkets to say if you want Australians to be buying fresh Australian dairy milk.. then you need to have profitable and sustainable dairy industry.

“That’s my next task for 2020.”

The delay in details being issued on the proposed dairy reduction scheme is “playing with the futures” of farm families, according to the Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers’ Association (ICMSA).
