The dairy industry is in a parlous state and this has been shown by the Mokotua Dairy factory dropping their payout to only 6d per 1b of butter fat being a record low price.
It is believed that Oteramika Dairy factory is going to b 7d
Only Mokotua Factory supplier recently informed the media that this was the first occasion that he started farming in 1913 that his herd failed to average 1 pound per cow for December, with last months figure being 19/6.
At a meeting held at the Mokotua Diary Factory on Wednesday morning (Mr C. Clay, being chairman) a motion was carried as follows:
"that in view of the low prices being realised for primary products, the Diary Control Board be requested to reduce the levy on butter and cheese by 5o percent for the present season".
At the same meeting the following was also carried unanimously - "That in view of the low prices ruling for diary products overseas, the Farmers' Union be requested to press for relieve for farmers as under: A future cut of 25 percent in salaries, 25 percent on interest and rents, the derating of all land used for farming, but excluding all land held for speculative purposes; that machinery and plant used by all farmers and dairy companies be admitted free from customs duties, that farmers be exempted from payment of unemployment levy, that the Government help and subsidise the control boards to develop new markets for our products overseas".
It was decided that the motion be forwarded to the Prime Minister, Southland members of Parliament, and the Dominion executive of the Farmers' Union.
On a lighter note tennis in the district is flourishing and large attendances are the rule at the Mokotua Tennis Courts. Suitable improvements are being carried out notably in connection with the fencing, and the surface, though clay is becoming fast to play on due to the spell of good weather.
The tennis dance is due to take place on Thursday next and the committee are making preparations for a bumper house. Dances, in view of the warm season seem to be especially popular this year and Mokotua are making sure of a large crowd by engaging a free bus for Thursday night.
Construction has started of a hard court on the school playground, whic when completed should prove an immense improvement.
