Welcome aboard: new Gippsland Hills group secretary Sonja Gili (left) receives her badge of office from group president Evelyn Stephens.

Clare focused on how her love of being a mum has grown and extended to caring for the welfare of both animals and children. A nurse and midwife by profession, she has four daughters, and for more than 40 years has been working to rescue and care for injured and mistreated animals, particularly donkeys and native wildlife. For more than 20 years, Clare has fostered children in need, some from only a few days old. She finds the children benefit from being with the animals. Clare works with Anglicare and Berry Street, and encouraged members to consider becoming foster carers. Group president Evelyn Stephens presented Clare with a spray of orchids, and a cheque towards the Christmas party held for local foster children in South Gippsland. The conference was held in Meeniyan, and was opened by Meeniyan Progress Association icon Avril Van Wamel, who welcomed members to the town and talked about the many projects undertaken by the Progress Association, from lobbying for sewerage in Meeniyan, to working to establish and beautify Tanderra Park. The tavern nights in the Meeniyan Hall, and the long-running Meeniyan Art Show are other progress association events. During the conference, Ms Stephens presented new group secretary Sonja Gili with her badge of office, and also presented the Aggregate Cup for small branches to Bena branch for their success in the recent CWA State Exhibition in Bendigo. Jasmin Mackie, junior member of Meeniyan Branch, also received a certificate and trophy as the most successful junior competitor in home industries at the State Exhibition. Jasmin was among the students of Tarwin Valley Primary School who entertained members with their delightful singing. The Prep, Grade 1 and Grade 6 children charmed everyone with their renditions of Waltzing Matilda, It’s My Car, and I Am a Paleontologist, among other songs. Gippsland Hills CWA Group recently held a successful International Day, focusing on New Zealand, this year’s country of study for CWA. Members voted to donate the proceeds of $500 to the Associated Country Women of the World, the world-wide body of which CWA is a part, to assist a delegate from one of the developing countries in our region to attend a coming international conference.

AUSTRALIAN dairy farmers are calling on all political parties to see agriculture as the new economic powerhouse for the nation. The dairy industry is highly valuable to Australia, contributing over $13 billion to Australia’s economy and employing over 140,000 people on farms, processing plants, and wider industry support services. Dairy is just one of the many agricultural sectors that have been key contributors to the Australian econo-

my for many years. Australian Dairy Farmers president Noel Campbell is calling on all parties to place dairy firmly on the national agenda. “The Australian dairy industry is constantly investing, adapting and innovating for a sustainable future. We are proud of our industry and confident in its future,” he said. Key policy priorities for the next federal government should be: • establish a mandatory supermarket code of conduct and appoint an ombudsman with teeth to ensure

compliance; • modify the ACCC collective bargaining to provide balance in market power to dairy farmers; • sign free trade agreements with key markets China, Japan and South Korea; and • help farmers staff their properties and extend the duration of 417 and 462 visas from six to 12 months as well include dairy on the list of eligible industries for the Seasonal Worker Scheme and on schedule one of the skilled occupation list.
