Australian dairy farmers prepare to cull up to 15 per cent of herd as grain prices skyrocket


Up to 15 per cent of the national dairy herd could be culled because grain is too expensive, farmers have warned.

The South Australian Dairy Association says the price of grain has doubled, leaving farmers little choice but to send cows to the abattoir.

SADA president John Hunt says the lack of feed in Australia means the numbers just don’t stack up and dairy farmers are losing money.
