A Victorian teen has started an online petition taking aim at "greedy" milk companies she says are destroying farming families.
The family states the farm is struggling with increasing debts due to its payment contract with co-operative Fonterra, which has dramatically reduced the price it pays for milk.
Chloe's petition calls on federal Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce to review the milk-pricing system.
Chloe's petition "change.org" has accumulate 126,611 signatures with majority of comments supportive of supermarkets raising the price of milk so farmers can be fairly paid.
Once the petition reaches 150,000 it will be delivered to Mr Joyce who on Wednesday plans to visit a dairy farm and milk processing plant.
