The Australian government has pledged an extra A$100m boost for the nation's dairy farmers, struggling under the effects of industry deregulation last summer.

The government had already outlined an adjustment scheme costing A$1.8bn for those worse affected, but this month's news of an extra boost suggests that the original aid estimates were not enough.
