Received your email re Crozier Street, V/Harbor. As one of many residents in Rapid Drive, McCracken we have for about 5 years tried to have our 40 KPH limit applying here is useless. We would like you to get the Council to place some sort of speed hump (Don't know the correct name) placed to stop speedsters. Rapid Drive is approx 1.2Kms long and has only 4 Speed signs along the entire length.
Certainly agree with you re Crozier. Thanks John Bentley
The dairy industry has so distressed me and members of my family that my adult daughter is vegan and I having been a vegetarian for most of my life have given up dairy foods as well. The thought of calves being taken from their mothers who like any mother has a strong bond with her newborn baby,distresses me to the point of not being able to sleep at night. I have heard them bellowing their grief and fear for their calves.The calves are taken from their need for milk and treated very badly . Some are shot if they are males and most end up as veal.Animals feel pain,grief and fear like we do.
Just wondering if it is true that you will be discontinuing the Devondale long life cream product. People in outback areas depend on this product as a staple part of their pantry.
The disconnect here is that Farmers believe they are selling a Value Added Product (and, that is a valid point of view for them) - that becomes a Commodity when the Buyer (in this case the Processor) converts it.
Value gets destroyed when you make a product a Commodity. Plain as Day.
The best way for Farmers to stay profitable is to ensure that the product they produce remains a Value Added product when the ultimate Consumer buys it. This could mean diversification into Cheese, Butter and Yogurt making - albeit on a small scale.
Read the building regulations, there has been changes for farm buildings. None of this is necessary as of current regulations!!!
see "Application of the Building Code of Australia to Farm Buildings" in the regulations, or "Practice Note 2015-67 Issued January 2015. Any component builder with rural buildings will know this.
It sounds like this permit has been lodged with a building surveyor that isn't familiar with the updated farm code, and the farmer is being ripped off with consultants, when all is needed is to read the current building regulations!
