This group site is specifically for people who have endured abuse from their bank - AND those who wish to learn about banking "practices" while supporting those who are in dire situations financially even though "you" may not be.The need to seek remedy with a financial institution appears to be a one way street – with all the accountability on the client, yet none on the bank – this is just one of the bluff’s that banks force upon clients.They have the ear of powerful people, politicians,…See More

Thanks for the hooray.
I was very interested in the pure milk topic in the Dairy section.
With all the crud they put in everything else why is unprocessed milk a threat?
I guess it makes someone in powers mates $$$...
They say a pessimist is an optimist with life experience :-)
I live real close to where they almost Dammed the land for ridiculous excuses.
And it put heaps of Dairy land under direct threat.
But it was an unexpected relief to have it all stopped.
Hello John, thank you for your welcome message. My husband Paul and I farm at Cooriemungle in the Heytesbury Settlement of south western Victoria. A very nice part of the world. Our farm is 280 acres and we are currently milking 173 registered Brown Swiss cows. Like every other dairyfarmer we are battling on doing the best we can to make ends meet. I am enjoying reading the comments from other farmers and hope to be able to contribute to the conversations in the future when time and work permit. cheers Carol :)

John, I am very lucky to say that our companies involvement in dairy is purely supplying oaten hay to daries in Japan, China, Sth Korea, Taiwan etc. I really feel sorry for the Aussie dairy farmer... It's horrible at the moment. One posative thing is all forms of feed should be back a long way this season i think, hay, grains etc... Hopefully that can be of some assistance to everyone... All the best, Corey
