In 2017, lion in FNQ lost a contract to supply a local hospital.

To sell that milk in Brisbane - the local farmers were forced to pay transport to Brisbane.

This is in a state which is not self sufficient in milk!

The forces of free enterprise - which the local farmers did not have any control
Of kicked in.

Commercial decisions were made which were not logical for the regions.

In case you are not aware - the Atherton Tableland has been identified by CSIRO AS an area where rainfall will increase.

Strategically it is a good place to produce milk for Queensland and the Northern Territory - which it has supplied for decades.
