    Coles the farmers friend sponsering this expensive farce. When will producers in this country wake up?? "Golden era" for AG- ministers year long "navel gaze" that won't have a single result -if ever -before this time next year.No action on "cattle levy" nor the MLA-???This is a govt that talks but is too rusted onto the big end to ever do anything that might change for the better.Platitudes about "farmgate returns, transparency etc" are all in defference to Rob Moore's efforts - but they have no intention of EVER acting on their "Club mates"!Sickening really considering the desparation alabout
