Hundreds gathered for the crisis meeting in Tongala today.

Hundreds of farmers attended the Farmer Power Crisis Meeting in Tongala today but no resolution has been reached.

The newly formed lobby group is campaigning for a better milk price, preference for Australian-made foods and reviews of government polices.

Dairy farmers are demanding action to achieve better milk proces and protection against subsidised imported food.

The meeting was supported by hundreds of dairy farmers, as well as beef farmers and orchardists and a large media contingency.

Farmer Power northern coordinator Nigel Hicks said the group would now analyse the feedback, both written and verbal, before deciding the next step.

Further meetings are expected to be held.
