Australian governments and industry need to start thinking about how to get young people into agriculture and stop the exponential US trend towards corporate agriculture.
Probably no area of national policy is in more urgent need of overhaul right now than that of energy – that is, electricity generation and supply, and its associated mining issues.
The Land says: Beef industry barely whimpers at intervention threat, despite proven frustrations around trust and transparency.
The Land says: Our governments missed a “golden” opportunity to sensibly invest off the back of the mining boom – let’s hope they don’t make the same mistakes with agriculture.
The Land says: Next year, beef producers will vote on whether the industry should fund the introduction of new technology into AusMeat accredited abattoirs.
