THE northern Victorian Farmer Power meeting will now be held at the Tongala Shire Hall next week.The meeting, originally scheduled for Echuca, will include guest speakers Senator Barnaby Joyce, local-food activist Dick Smith as well as Ausbuy chief executive Lynne Wilkinson.
One of the meeting organisers, Wyuna dairy farmer Nigel Hicks is hoping for a large turn-out of farmers, services providers and community next Wednesday February 13.
"We have been using any avenue we can (to get the message out), via local business word of mouth, telephones and the media,'' he said.
The meeting will start at 10.30am.
This meeting follows a similar meeting at Noorat in southwest Victoria where more than 600 people discussed their concerns about the profitability of the dairy industry.
