They are probably on a hiding to nothing, but it's one of those cases of "well someone has to do it." Six candidates are fighting for two positions on the Murray Goulburn board, they are Russell Robins (Cohuna, Vic), Ian Goodin (Yarroweyah, Vic), David Paton (Tallangatta, Vic), Ian Zanstra (Nowra, NSW) and Brock Williams (Turrumbarry, Vic).

MG Shareholder will be asked to cast their vote by the 23rd of August.

Current board member Natalie Akers (Tallygaroopna, Vic) is eligible for re-election but doesn't feature in the six candidates on offer. Ken Jones and Graham Munzel, current board members are not eligible for re-election.

The tarnished brand is looking for some fresh faces to try and claw back some credibility in the Dairy industry. Many Farmers have left the milk supplier to take up more lucrative contracts with other suppliers who have been pouncing like eagles.
