My acquaintance with the dairy farmers is about 30 years out of date, but no-one I knew was driving luxury vehicles or having it easy. But then herds were 300 tops. I understand it has changed and it's the US version of mega farm factories these days in most agricultural products. I seem to remember farmers dumping free produce in the city square at one stage, and the French farmers are enthusiastic for the idea, and manure on the council steps, so perhaps Oz farmers could join their version of protest. Consumers are too far removed from their food imho. I'd include a few farm, food factory and abattoir visits in the school curriculum and see what sort of effect that would have on the consumers of the future.
