Kevin Byrne has elbowed his way into a "leadership" role at Advance Cairns, a nice little earner for him - with no actual way to figure out what the hell he's actually doing. And in typical Byrne-bully style, he's now been overheard angling to undermine chair Trent Twomey. Byrne is not one to take direction from ANYONE. Often seen panting and huffing from his car into a meeting here and there, Byrne was asked for his expertise and guidance this morning on growing the export of fruit/veg/dairy from Cairns to Asia.
The Jonsson Farm Market Crook followed Byrne pointing out that the farmers aren't the ones to identify markets and customers, ADVANCE CAIRNS is supposed to be doing that. Byrne has been junketing to China and other destinations in Asia for DECADES, with nothing to show for it.
The level of Byrne's ignorance is encapsulated in his whinge - "why are the Chinese buying milk from Victoria and Tasmania, when they could be buying it from us"??
You can't make this shit up.
We Kevvy, if you had bothered to check you'd know the
reason for the Chinese planeloads of dairy products from Victoria and Tasmania - THEY OWN THE FUCKING DAIRIES!
|ALL THE COWS NOW|
Why would they buy from the pissant dairy production in North Queensland? All of Queensland produces barely 400 million litres of milk per year, Victoria - 6,180m litres per year. And Victoria has DOUBLED their dairy production with the same size herds by implemented a proper investment strategy. Queensland? Well, the Malanda farmers are still driving Mercs.
Get a grip, Kevin. Your continued laziness is all to evident to the Cairns populace. The reason Val Schier was able to shitcan your arse so handily.
