Vegie growers told to change policies

A group of growers who say the Government’s decision to phase out the import of cattle from Tasmania has failed to protect them from market price spikes has sent a letter to the Government saying they are concerned they will be forced to sell their cattle in the state.

The letter came after a spate of incidents involving animal welfare issues in a new agricultural policy area that was brought into force in November.

Mr Tudge confirmed the new policy change would affect imports, but would not comment on their impact on consumers as he was confident the issue would be handled carefully.

“At the end of the day we’re making a voluntary change thnatyasastra.comat’s going to give us a much better balance of information to consider,” he said.

“That is an outcome that we’re pretty confident will be well reviewed, but that’s not yet b우리카지노een taken by the AAT.”

GRAIG SLEEPER’S PROSPECTS

Grain Farmer David Settle, a farmer in Crook River, is still concerned.

“The fact they haven’t done any sort of analysis of the risks to consumers or to the environment is a concern to us,” Mr Settle said.
