The Beagle Editor, Today I saw Warren Mundine for Gilmore saying on his sponsored Facebook page "I'm listening to our dairy farmers and fighting to get them a better deal. Yesterday I met with Tim, Dan and Rebecca Cochrane, and I'll continue to talk to our farmers so we can fight together for a better farmgate milk price." Meanwhile just a few kilometres south of his Gilmore electorate boundary ABC South East NSW radio reported that Not a single cent had been forthcoming from Coles. What does Mr Mundine or Ms Fiona Katvojs, Liberal Candidate for Eden Monaro, have to say about the ABC report. Nothing.

🐄💰A Bodalla Dairy farmer said she hasn't received a cent from Coles, after the company announced it will increase the price of milk.The organisation said in March that the additional 10 cents per litre it charges customers will go directly to farmers. Farmer, Vanessa Todd, supplies processor Saputo, who produce the Coles branded milk. She estimates she's so far owed more than $10,000. She said consumers are being misled. "The consumers think they're paying this extra 10 cents so it comes to the dairy farmer." "If you work it out on what you normally produce, it would probably be close to maybe another 10 to 15 thousand dollars, but at least that's another truckload of grain that I could get paid for. "In a statement to the ABC, Saputo said they have contacted all of their farmer suppliers to let them know they are working with Coles to determine how the price increase will be distributed and passed onto suppliers as soon as possible My message to both of these politicians. don't claim you care because you don't. These are crocodile tears to gain votes and we see through your shallow vote getting bullshit Both blow-ins with no idea that have arrived with trinkets and shiny things with ingenuous compassion. Well guess what? I smells like dairy cowsh*t. Name and address supplied
