Not so much something that needs to change but a suggestion which should also help other farmers.
Rather than having to sell off the cows it would be handy if they could be used as surrogate mums through embryo transfer. This could then be used as a means of rebuilding herds like those in northern Qld without losing the genetics they have built up.
This becomes helpful when the dairy farmers are paid for the use of their cows as surrogates. One way this could be done is using some government relief programs. (I would be prepared to contribute my small share to help crowd fund it as another option.)
