Bushfires have killed as many as half a million animals this season… including livestock across the New South Wales South Coast and Gippsland in Victoria.

Shaughn Morgan is head of the New South Wales farmers’ body Dairy Connect.

He’s told NewsRadio’s Matt O’Neil the impact of the bushfires on dairy farmers could compromise fresh milk supplies.
