Opinion Piece by John Michelmore                                                There have been comments in the media that say Barnaby Joyce is the best retail politician in the national party; but is this what you want as an elected politician. Yes, Johnny Depp’s dogs were a good news story, raising Banaby’s profile, but that does not necessarily translate into good […]

The Implementation of Barnaby’s Plan!!

Opinion – Rod Dunbar  I most certainly disagree with the latest proposal by CCA regarding the funding from consolidate revenue* of its advocacy/political activities, I believe the Cattle Transaction Levy (CTL) must only be used for so called market failure defined by the Department as R&D and undefined Marketing Schemes, and definitely not Agri-Political activities.

John Carpenter

Guest post by John Carpenter – (Cattle Producer – New England, NSW) Cattle production in Australia is dying of neglect. Neither the LIBERALS, nor the NATIONALS nor LABOR care about the consumers of beef or the producers of cattle. Legislation passed in 1997 (The Australian Meat and Livestock Industry Act) moved everything off  the government […]

[Mods note ~ United Stockowners of Australia has received expressed permission from the good Lord - Christopher Monckton of Brenchley - to reproduce his latest essay.  It is indeed quite hilarious however, it is also very much indicative of the gross abuse of power by the South Australian Government employed Environmentalists.

The Road to Serfdom – The manipulation of the Northern Cattle Industry.


Opinion – Rod Dunbar – 05/03/2013 It is ironic that the disintegration of the northern cattle industry through the demise of live exports to Indonesia, combined with low enterprise incomes generally, unsustainable high property values and the resultant bank receivership actions across the north has triggered a fresh round of the old propaganda by MLA […]

Part 2 – South Australia – Repeal NRM Act 2004 – (NOW)

Letter to the Editor With reference to Roger Farley’s letter in this paper last week, there are two very important issues raised his letter. The first is farmer representation. Irrespective, any organisation representing farmers must not be seen to be in the pocket of government. References to SAFF abound in the State legislation while SAFF […]
