The milk brands you should buy to support Australian dairy farmers

The milk brands you should buy to support Australian dairy farmers

Update May 4, 2017: Almost one year after its decision to regain $183 million in milk price 'overpayments' from farmers, Australia's biggest dairy group Murray Goulburn is backflipping on its decision. According to a 2012 milk supply contract (the Bonlac supply-agency agreement), rival company Fonterra is legally obliged to match or better the farm milk price paid by price setter Murray Goulburn. This means, legally, Fonterra will most likely have to pay an extra 3.5 c per litre for the 1.7-billion litres of milk supplied by farmers from 2015–16 – that's around $60 million, and an average of $45,000 per farmer. The repayment would be a significant improvement after a year of anguish for Australian dairy farmers. Fonterra Australia has called an urgent meeting with its milk farmers today to address the decision – we'll keep you posted on more news as it comes. more

The round-up: make your mum feel extra special with these Mother’s Day ideas

Honestly, mums don’t get enough credit for everything they do for us. Not only did they give us life, they also made sure that we stayed alive through our oblivious infancy period, kept us out of trouble (as best as they could) and loved us unconditionally no matter how many scratches we put on the car or tattoos we added to our bodies. Our mums are one in a million, which means any gift this Mother’s Day must reflect their personal interests. If you are stumped for ideas, we’ve put together a list to act as a guide to ensure you treat your mum the way she deserves to be treated – like a honest-to-goodness Queen. more
