Farm Business

The helmet requirement is plain stupid as is mandatory helmets on pushbikes - have a read of the Coroner's reports on farm deaths and overwhelmingly the only thing that would have saved 4-wheeler riders is rollover protection and the poor practices that cause rollovers.
To be clear - head injury is not the killer on farms - it is broken necks, broken backs and chest crush injuries that kill. Forcing the wearing of helmets will result in a user backlash and that undermines the effort on the real problem

Why does Adam insist on doing the biding of the processors? That is their line and he has swallowed it whole. If there were proper contracts for supply between farmers and processors, the supermarkets would not have been able to do what they did. Then, after considerable analysis by the ACCC, the impact on the farmer is been only negligible. Adam, you need to represent the farmers and their needs exclusively.

The dairy industry is unnatural, unhealthy and extremely cruel.
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.
