Let’s keep it clean in the dairy campaign

There has been a lot of things written and said about the dairy industry in the past week or two. Much of its focus is on the performance of industry bodies, including the UDV. 

People are entitled to voice their opinion. Members particularly. It is good to see passion and unity. However, some of the commentary has included personal attacks on farmer representatives. That is unfair. These are good people doing their best. Best results are achieved with support and farmer involvement. 

We are all in this together. Focus and a cool head will win the long game. We are the backbone of the country, not a mob.
