Andrew Thompson,
Promar International :
"What most people don’t think about, if they think about dairy farming at all, is the diverse skill set that our farmers need to possess to be successful. Not only do they need to be experts in animal breeding, nutrition, health and welfare, but they also need to be negotiators, planners, technically savvy and commercially minded. I’m proud to work with them and proud of dairy"

"The Red Tractor is a symbol that consumers trust, and with just cause. For dairy, the scheme ensures that milk is produced and stored in a safe and hygienic manner, that the cattle’s welfare needs are met, that animals can be traced back to their farms and that the environment is not adversely affected by dairy farming. I’m proud of the Dairy Scheme and proud of our industry for supporting it."
