Irrigation water price rise stresses farmers

Dairy farmers are looking for cost savings in coastal NSW, after irrigation water charges jumped 10 per cent with the new season water allocations.

Farmers say that makes coastal milk production more difficult than inland on the Murray River, where irrigation water costs are seven times cheaper for farmers, because there are more producers to share the admin costs.

Bega dairy farmer Steve Guthrey says a 10 per cent water price rise is just the start of rising costs.
