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.

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.
