MLC to go on-line for better contact

AN MLC website is being set up to improve contact with producers.

Nicky OReilly, MLCs head of corporate communications said an increasing number of producers were using computers and the web, and the commission was keen to find out what farmers would like to see on its site.

"We are keen to find out whether they would find technical bulletins, MLC news and information about promotions and activities of any interest.

"The MLC has a lot of information, and it makes sense to get that out to producers. The site will also link in to other MLC sites," added Ms OReilly. &#42
