With Christmas only two sleeps away, it’s time to reflect on the role that dairy farmers (and for that matter all farmers) plays in the festive season.
We’re all looking forward to the cheese platters, custard, ice cream and all manner of other festive trimmings this holiday period. All of those tasty
dairy products have been produced by the dairy farmers of this country, which is milked and processed even as we unwrap our presents from Santa on
Christmas morning. Milking takes place every day of the year, irrespective if public holidays or religious festivals. Aussie farmers do this to ensure
that there is always milk in our fridges – 365 days a year.
So as you tuck into your Christmas pudding and add custard, butter or cream remember to thank an Australian dairy farmer who got up early to produce it.
Merry Christmas from Australian Dairy Farmers!
