New Zealand dairy farmers who have been farming in Australia for more than a decade say they are struggling to survive with no access to the Federal Government’s industry assistance. This year, dairy farmers across Australia have had the price they are paid for milk slashed and many are now being paid below cost of production for their produce. To help the industry, the Federal Government responded by making low-interest, concessional loans available and extended the Centrelink farm household allowance to dairy farming families. However New Zealand farmers who have made Australia their home, cannot access the assistance.
