This week Casey Treloar from South Australia posted an emotional video on Facebook. She was walking through her family's herd of dairy cows which were about to be sold. Her father, who had dairy farmed an hour south of Adelaide his entire life, was selling up because he couldn't continue farming year after year at a loss. The video went viral and Casey says at least two dairy farming  families a week could post a similar story.
