Judd to step down

AUSTRALIAN Dairy Farmers president Wes Judd has announced he will not seek re-election in August due to a decision to attend to his farming business full-time.

The Judd family previously ran a dairy operation at Emu Vale before moving to Millmerran, with their new property being severely damaged by the summer floods.

A statement released by the Australian Dairy Farmers (ADF) board said Mr Judd had advised of his plan to step down from the presidency and other representational duties, including those of Australian Dairy Industry Council Chair and Australian Dairy Herd Improvement Scheme president.

The board paid tribute to more than a decade of service by Mr Judd at a national level to dairy farmers on issues such as international trade, animal health and welfare, water, carbon and regulatory reform.

Mr Judd will remain on the Queensland Dairyfarmers Organisation board.
