Perth, WA: Coming to Australia always gives you a fresh perspective on matter agricultural. This is the prominent headline in The Countryman weekly which refers to a 66-year old Danish woman who is going to knock the guts out of the Australian dairy industry.
Quite what her age, nationality or gender has got to do with it is another matter, but the message about the restoration of export refunds and the actions of farm commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel is crystal clear. It is backed up by an interview with an indignant Australian farmer.
One good point that the articles does make is that the EU cares little about the health of the global dairy industry and perhaps in time of food security concerns it should.
