South-west dairy farmers have been assured by Pauline Hanson that "hope is on the way".
The One Nation leader asked The Standard to pass on the message after she received support for a Senate investigation into the dairy industry on Thursday.
"They've got someone in their corner," Ms Hanson said.
She said she believed the dairy industry was in crisis and called for the inquiry to look into why.
Ms Hanson said she was also calling for a fair farmgate price for dairy farmers to be implemented. "I believe Australians will pay that price for the milk," she said.
"If we don't we are going to be importing milk from New Zealand or - think about it - importing powdered milk from China." Ms Hanson said she was disgusted the Liberal and National parties had turned their backs on dairy farmers.
"The National Party has not represented farmers - they're lackeys for the Liberal Party as far as I'm concerned.
"It makes me so mad that they're not owning up to what is happening to our dairy farmers."
Ms Hanson said she spoke regularly to dairy farmers who were "on their knees".
"I want to look after our industry, I want to look after our farmers and I'll continue fighting until I get some answers." Ms Hanson said she hoped to visit the south-west and meet with dairy farmers, but could not commit to a timeframe at present. "Don't worry, I'll get down there as soon as I possibly can," she said.
"I may reside in Queensland, but Australia is my home."
