Minister Littleproud about to infect national cattle herd with lumpy skin disease

Letter to the Editor

The week of 8.4.2022 I came across an articles regarding a researcher and Government officials in Australia wanting to bring highly contagious lumpy skin disease samples into Australia so it can be studied.

Why would Agriculture Minister David Littleproud allow lumpy skin disease to enter Australia? It is found in India and Indonesia and we do not want it here.

It seems we do not have the disease in Australia. After a bit of a search it also seems there is an alarming rate of spreading of this disease around the world at the moment, so why would you risk the importation of this bug into our country, given what has happened over the last couple of years. 11.4.2022 and David Littleproud has given permission.

In my opinion this researcher should pack their suit case jump on a plane and go and research  the disease where it exists. We have in the past have had a top biosecurity act in place here in Australia,

Unfortunately it no longer has my confidence as it has been thrown out the window. If private business is involved its just about the money, I am sure I am not the only concerned Australian in regard to these types of infectious diseases. Let’s hope the bureaucrats were qualified to make the right decision or perhaps it has been imported already. If this disease suddenly appears we know where to start looking for answers. I am not happy how Australia has and is being run for years, An absolute Disgrace if you ask me.

Kind Regards,

Editor: Minister Littleproud’s knowledge of agriculture would fit onto a postage stamp. His father was a country school teacher and David would have seen cows in a paddock somewhere which qualified him to be Minister. But have no doubt the ALP would do the same. Have these mindless bureaucrats and LNP dupes learnt nothing from the Covid scam?

Bill Gates’ Frankenfood to replace beef follows on from burnt down food factories

(Natural News) From the halting of fertilizer and animal feed shipments to the waves of arson that have burnt down food factories in America, the Biden Administration seems to be strategically and nefariously deconstructing America’s agricultural infrastructure, but why? One reason is to convert the entire “meat” industry from real food into Franken-food. This plan, along with pushing blood-clotting vaccines for Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), will ensure the population reduction plan goes into full swing sooner rather than later. Expensive and toxic test-tube meat made in a laboratory is coming to every store near you, and it won’t just be a choice, it will be the ONLY choice.

Bill Gates is busy with his depopulation plans such as engineered food shortages then soon to get rid of red meat and replace it with a Frankenfood test tube concoction.

Cell-based, genetically modified meat is disgusting and a dangerous food experiment that will be all but FORCED on Americans, along with clot shots

Most meat-eaters refuse to eat meat grown in a lab, but if given no other choice, will probably convert. Food shortages are being engineered across the board in America, and it’s no coincidence about all the halting of feed and fertilizer trains, burning down of food factories, and boycotting imports from breadbasket countries.

Throwing gasoline on the fire in Ukraine (under the guise of NATO) is not helping the food shortage situation, all intended to drive Americans into eating only GMO-Frankenfoods for every meal and snack. Get ready for a gel-like substance grown in test tubes from the blood of animals, that’s genetically modified and mutated to cause sickness in anything that consumes it. No safety tests have been run for human consumption of Bill Gates’ GM meat, not for the short term or long term.

Once all animal feed supplies are destroyed and cut off from farmers in America, they will be forced to sell their farm animals for slaughter just to pay their bills, and then there will be no more livestock at all, just lab-meat made from stored blood. Fake steak. Fake burger. Fake chicken. Fake turkey. Fake pig.

Artificial meat is “built” with microbes and fungus, including fake meat, dairy, egg, and even lab-made “breast milk” substitutes

Ready to be part of the grand cancer experiment? No? Maybe you should avoid Franken-meat, and Franken-eggs, and Franken-breast-milk then. From Ginkgo Bioworks and Motif Foodworks, to Nature’s Fynd and BioMilq, lab-grown animal junk science is coming to stores near you, for good.

Wave goodbye to meat from actual animals that roamed the Earth. Wave goodbye to actual animal by-products like eggs and milk, because the Biden Regime, Bill Gates, and the other globalist pigs want everyone eating Franken-foods and getting injected with Franken-vaccines.

First Bill Gates pushed his nasty lab-grown meat stuff on third world countries, but now he’s pushing it on everyone, everywhere

Here’s Bill Gates trying to turn the world’s populace into Franken-Zombies who eat artificial meat every meal and get clot shots every 3 months until we reduce the world’s population by a few billion. Here’s Gates’ plan to end all real meat and sell just lab-concocted junk-science funk: “I do think all rich countries should move to 100 percent synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior] of people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.”

Bill Gates is very angry that Big Food won’t yet allow him to call this bloody-lab-funk made from cow abortions “meat.” He wants to end “meat” as we know it and substitute it all with his mass-funded lab concoctions.

That’s why rail carriers are being forced to halt shipments of grain to cow herds across America – it’s an engineered meat collapse to “shift the demand” to Franken-meat. Remember, the Health Ranger has called this out already in several articles, where halting this feed for animals is devastating the farmer’s ability to keep livestock alive and producing products without killing them all off to do it. America’s food infrastructure is being deliberately shut down, as Mike Adams has stated.

NT Labor eradicating pastoralists in readiness for a Chinese takeover, Agenda 30 well on the way

As food supplies deliberately tighten up world-wide amid the Covid plandemic, the communists of the Northern Territory Labor Party led by Chief Minister Michael Gunner have begun their move against cattle producers and farmers.

Cattle producers have been slammed with a compliance regime unequalled in Australia, exempting Victoria, that will cut cattle numbers in the Northern Territory by at least one third and increase operating costs up to 50 per cent.

The United Nations Environment Program has its fingerprints all over the NT legislation that will force the un-fenced Territory property lessees to declare unbranded cattle as feral and have them shot, similar to the Queensland National Parks Service which has been recently shooting branded and unbranded cattle across Far Northern Queensland.

At a time when producers are experiencing unprecedented high cattle prices predictably the NT Labor Party swoops like a vulture.

Most cattlemen in the Territory have not recovered from the federal Labor Party’s overnight ban of live export cattle in 2011. One NT producer took the former federal Labor Minister Joe Ludwig to court suing for damages over the ban. In June 2020 Justice Rares of the Federal Court awarded the Brett Cattle Company $3 million plus costs.

Justice Rares said Ludwig had acted with malfeasance in public office and that his decision was invalid.

While NT producers have had more than 12 months of record prices, it will take many years to recover from Ludwig’s death sentence for a number of producers who committed suicide and the original litigant, Dugal Brett’s death in a helicopter crash at Waterloo Station in 2015.

The Civil Aviation Authority blamed dirty fuel after an investigation of the wrecked chopper. No helicopter pilot has ever intentionally put contaminated fuel into a machine. Every pilot is meticulous about fuel supplies and carry their own fuel pumps with filters to ensure there can be no dirty fuel going into their tank.

The NT Labor Party is ramping up the regulations, with which primary producers will not be able to comply.

This regulatory grab for NT leasehold pastoral holdings will have a significant impact on how properties are managed.

Whenever the bogeyman word ‘sustainable’ bobs up it is a clear indication of impending UN control.

Land clearing of any nature will be a thing of the past and new dams for irrigation will cease to exist.

The ALP is bringing in Agenda 30 sustainability thresholds that will be unable to be met especially in the dry arid zone. https://sdgs.un.org/2030agenda

Albeit NT cattle properties have been well overpriced the new agenda will cut their value significantly, thus reducing a grazier’s debt to equity ratio.

Banks will be moving in because most pastoralists hold significant debt.

Then on cue comes China which already owns Darwin Harbour and other pastoral properties in the north including Stage 2 of the Ord River Scheme.

This strategy by NT Labor is not their idea. It follows hot on the heels of similar Deep State moves using land acquisitions in the Mid West of America where Bill Gates and Jeff Bazos have bought huge swathes of prime farm land to grow crops such as soybeans which will be used to manufacture artificial meat.

Thus the removal of NT livestock and their minuscule CO2 and methane emissions in lockstep with the false doctrine of climate change.

Fortunately the hot climate and lengthy wet seasons of the NT do not lend themselves towards broad acre dryland farming but the new regulatory regime will have a dire impact on rangelands cattle production.

More on this story soon.

The stupidity of the federal bureaucracy and the ALP/LNP duopoly knows no bounds

Imported supply of diesel additive to make modern truck and tractor engines operate has run out

By Henry Jom

December 12, 2021 

Federal Trade Minister Dan Tehan is confident Australia’s urea supply will be unaffected as the federal government seeks to secure the crucial diesel fuel emissions ingredient from other countries.

Australia’s bloated, leftist bureaucracy has again stuffed up nearly shutting down much of the country’s heavy transport fleet and farmers by forcing the closure of fertiliser factories because of carbon dioxide emissions then relying on an expensive and unnecessary, imported environmental emissions preventative added to truck fuel. Farmers across Australia need more than five million tonnes of urea plus other fertilisers to plant next year’s cereal, oilseed and fibre crops. It seems there will be none available. The madmen of the ALP/LNP have shut down fertiliser factories because of onerous carbon dioxide targets that have been set by international agreements. And Barnaby Joyce the Nationals leader wants voters to keep away from independent candidates? The depopulation agenda continues.

Tehan has also urged businesses not to hoard AdBlue—a brand of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) containing urea used in modern trucks and diesel vehicles—in order to prevent disruptions to the nation’s freight and logistics sector.

“There are obviously issues around containers, shipping disruptions which we’re also working through,” Tehan told ABC Radio.

“But from everything that we’re seeing, there is a clear supply which we can bring to Australia and given we have seven weeks already in stock, we are very confident we will be able to get the urea that we need into the country.”

Last month, the federal government imported 27,000 litres of urea from South Korea used to make AdBlue.

Australia is also speaking with Indonesia and will approach Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Japan, to secure further urea supplies.

“I’ve spoken to my Indonesian counterpart and there is some supply in Indonesia that we should be able to access in the coming weeks,” Tehan told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

This follows the banning of urea exports from China as it prioritises domestic supply.

Analysts estimate about three-quarters of urea produced in China is made with coal, while the rest uses natural gas, reported.

While Australia has previously imported 80 percent of its urea from China, countries like Indonesia and South Korea appear to be good alternatives for Australia, David Leaney, an International Supply Chain Management lecturer at Australian National University said.

“We’ve got good trade relationships with South Korea as well.”

Leaney added that the geographical closeness of Indonesia is more appealing for Australia as urea is a cheap commodity for its volume.

“What you don’t want is transporting cheap stuff using expensive transport a long way because then transport becomes a too higher percentage of the total price you’re paying,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) said the shortage was a “wake-up call” for an over-reliance on concentrated international supply chains.

“We need to increase our domestic manufacturing capacity to increase Australia’s resilience to international supply chain shocks,” VFF infrastructure and transport committee chair Ryan Milgate said in a media release.

Milgate added that the agricultural supply was already under strain with truck driver shortages and global supply chain disruptions.

“As farmers produce essential perishable goods, the supply of critical inputs like AdBlue is essential to maintaining our food security.

“It’s critical the AdBlue supply chain including manufacturers, the fertiliser industry, transport operators and government work together to address the shortages,” Milgate said.

National Road Transport Association’s chief executive Warren Clark previously called on the federal government to form a task force of industry groups to look at options to mitigate the situation in the immediate term.

“If we learned one thing from COVID-19 it’s that a lack of coordination only compounds problems,” Warren said.

“Our industry isn’t the only one that will be affected, but we will be hit first and hardest.”

From a reader:

https://www.bakeryoung.com.au/a-boost-for-agriculture-from-sa/ Leigh Creek Energy is developing its flagship Leigh Creek Urea Project (LCUP), located 550km north of Adelaide in South Australia.

The $2.6 billion LCUP will be the lowest-cost sovereign producer of urea, producing nitrogen-based fertiliser for local and export agriculture markets. It will provide additional security for a critical product for the Australian agricultural sector and avoid supply-side risks associated with international transport, exchange rates, commodity prices, and import logistics that Australian farmers contend with.

Coles and Woolworths will get a hike in income from FWC ruling much to the detriment of farmers

CHANGES to a farm worker Industrial Relations Award means that fruit pickers will now receive a guaranteed minimum wage but Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter, says the farmers will bear the brunt of an increase in costs in the supermarket as a result.

Bob Katter warns farmers will be unable to pass on fixed minimum wages costs awarded by the Fair Work Commission

“The decision by the Fair Work Commission to provide a minimum wage for farm workers is a good decision because it will encourage people to become farm workers and not have to get everyone from overseas.

“Having said that, cost structures have to be born by the farmers – they can’t pass it on.

“We have only two or three people that sell fruit and vegetables in Australia and combined they have over 75 percent of the market. They pay the farmers whatever they feel like paying the farmers.”

Mr Katter said that farm incomes from the supermarkets giants had barely changed in the last 30 years ago but the price of food to the consumer has skyrocketed more than 250 percent.

“The real problem here is that the farmers had their collective bargaining rights taken off them. For the workers, this is a good thing that they have got their bargaining rights, but the farmers don’t have their bargaining rights because the National Party deregulated most of their industries.

“So yes, the workers can and should be given a better go but the people who are going to be punished here are the farmers and the benefit to the consumer, is nil.

“There is a as much chance of the supermarket giants passing on that charge and giving it to the farmers as I have got of becoming a beetle rider from Booroola.

“So, Mr Government, give back to the farmers their right to collectively bargain. The workers have that right and they should have it and the farmers should have it.

“You took it off them and they’ve been screwed through the floor. There were 270,000 of them, now there is a 160,000 of them. What a cruelty. What a cruelty.  And the Australian people are paying the price.

“All those changes, clearly, we know who profited by them. It wasn’t the worker. It wasn’t the consumer, and it most certainly wasn’t the farmer.”

Australian Deputy Prime Minister wants to censor social media – now we know why

-contributed

It is hard to pick which one is Barnie Joyce, Deputy PM but our guess is on the left and the other is Sir Les Patterson (Barry Humphries). Barnaby’s latest kudos is collapsing under threat of losing Ministerial leather for himself and his hopeless National Party cronies by acquiescing to compromised PM Scott Morrison over the Glasgow environmental jaunt to eradicate farmers over the next 20 years. No more prime rib steaks then Barnie! Just Scomo’s mate Bill Gates’ soybean mush.

Qld Labor Party’s continuing push to depopulate the regions

The Queensland State Government’s push to depopulate the regions has taken another turn for the worse as farmers in the Paradise Dam irrigation area in the South Burnett face water allocations of just 14 per cent, down from a usual 80 per cent.

Because of a farcical lowering of the dam wall by the state government owned entity Sunwater, allegedly due to engineering faults, farmers will suffer.

Irrigators say it will be the end of the line for many of them.

Plant and equipment has started to be removed from the Paradise Dam site and the workers camp buildings will be removed from site in July 2021. Picture: Sunwater
Paradise Dam near Bundaberg will have its wall lowered allegedly due to engineering faults which farmers say is fraudulent and will see many leave the industry because of 80 per cent reductions in water allocations. Pic QCL

Then the socialist state government plans to allow the corrupt Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to rewrite the animal cruelty act which is akin to placing Dracula in charge of the blood bank.

Farmers will be decimated by new and harsh animal cruelty laws which will make livestock ownership impractical and nonviable by stopping the castrating, fire branding and dehorning of male cattle– thus driving more farmers from the regions.

The Nationals, once the farmers’ friend has dumped its core support base in the bush and now is cosying up to the Liberals and the inner-city latte set.

Three Katters Australian Party state members assisted by a lone One Nation member have been representing rural Queensland in the absence of the LNP for the past two terms of parliament.

With the livestock industry at its most buoyant in recent history and cattle numbers at an all time low the Labor Party can see another opportunity to push people from the bush to make them re-settle in the cities where they can be controlled under the providential Covid regime hoax.

The depopulation agenda which will ultimately result in a loss of production as family farms falter, has also got a hand up from another prong of the Labor attack.

Pastoralists on Cape York Peninsula, the last bastion of cheap cow breeder country in Australia have been active on the front line for a decade or more defending their Pastoral Holdings from the ongoing Labor and Greens assault.

Aboriginal encroachment of their properties is steady and continuous as graziers are forced to negotiate Indigenous Land Use Agreements with Aboriginal Prescribed Body Corporations before any change of land use such as building stock water dams or clearing fence lines.

Then along ride the cowboy cops from Cairns in deference to local police operations hammering white pastoralists along property roads and insignificant tracks sometimes on private property enforcing unworkable traffic and gun policies, issuing huge fines for unregistered farm vehicles or for carrying a firearm in a vehicle without it being locked up.

As one white cattle worker said: “I was fined by a Cairns copper for driving an unregistered four wheel drive car along a private road running through our property and this is not the first time they have struck on the Cape. They check the cars for road- worthiness. It is going on all the time.

“They are trying to drive us out and give the land back to the blacks to do nothing with and let it go to wasteland like all the other cattle properties they have seized.”

Road worthy certificates are not required in Cook Shire which covers all of Cape York.

Another grazier was apprehended on a road through his property for carrying a firearm in his vehicle, about to shoot a wild dog he saw menacing his sheep, goats and calves. The errant and hopeless cowboy cop from Cairns grabbed his gun, immediately checked the chamber of the bolt action rifle and in doing so unknowingly chambered a round from the magazine. He waved the rifle about uncontrollably causing the occupants of the car to duck fearing they would be shot. The officer did not know how to operate a simple bolt action rifle. Remember he carries a semi-auto .40 cal Glock lead pelter.

Then along came Wyatt Earp, the sharpest aerial shooter in the north. Contracted by the national parks service, helicopter culling of cattle, horses and pigs has been quietly going on for several years. Valuable branded and unbranded cattle belonging to white pastoralists straying into any state or Aboriginal owned land have been shot from the air often leaving wounded animals suffering for days on the ground.

One white pastoralist was left fuming when a horse was shot from the air at a salt lick trough and left to die while its foal was running in circles around its helpless mother.

Leaving a mare to die and rot at a crucial salt trough kept the traumatised cattle away until the manager turned up a week or more later to replenish the salt which the cattle had not touched.

The pastoralist said the foal lived and now runs with the cattle.

These atrocious government-sanctioned activities are an almost daily event on Cape York according to those who live there which they say are part and parcel of the campaign to drive them off their properties.

Another attempt to surreptitiously shoot valuable cattle north east of Weipa two weeks ago was thwarted when an alert property owner spotted several drums of Avgas aviation fuel at a remote airstrip.

Inquiries discovered the national parks service was about to start aerial shooting cattle, the property of indigenous and white property owners.

A call from Member for Traeger Robbie Katter to the Environment Minister’s office was all it took to shake them down.

The Minister’s office denied any cattle were to be shot and that the helicopter was being used to show traditional owners their property boundaries.

Subsequent calls by property owners to the local TO’s revealed no knowledge of any helicopter flights for them to inspect property.

Such are the day-to-day events being hosted across Cape York Peninsula by a deceitful state Labor Party hell-bent on turning the once prosperous Peninsula into a world heritage park at the request of its mortgagees, Rothschild Bank.

Voter fraud keeps these socialists in power.

RSPCA and Labor Left coming after farmers and pig dog hunters

by Jim O’Toole, Townsville bureau

The RSPCA, in cahoots with the Labor Party is doubling up its rural culture busting efforts by calling for a tightening of animal cruelty policies.

They are coming after steel traps, pig dogs, 1080 poison and the alleged mistreatment of farm animals. The fact that there are more than one million feral pigs between the Tablelands and the Tip of Cape York eating their way through thousands of eggs laid by cassowaries, scrub turkeys, turtles and crocodiles, is not as important as a dog chewing on a pig’s ear.

Pig hunting is a necessary and socially acceptable method of controlling the exploding feral pig population across northern Australia

Maybe some of the more colourful pig hunters could be more careful should their dogs latch onto the handful of worrisome RSPCA dopes if they trespass on private property so these city-centric idiots understand just how pig hunting works.

This official rural terrorism falls into line with the present Labor disarmament of gun owners and harassment of gun shop proprietors.  Last week Covid cops visited gun shops ensuring counter staff were wearing useless and dangerous masks, another facet of the war on freedom of choice.

Note the word policies (above) because Labor Premier Peter Beattie in 2001 removed the Crown from all Queensland legal procedures and the Parliament, without referendum, following the Goss and Blight campaign to destroy freehold land titles and land ownership when all parchment deeds were shredded in the 90’s.

The Emperor has no clothes and according to two Constitutional law analysts’, ‘legislation’ churned out by the State Parliament is only applicable to members of political parties and the Public Service who sign employment contracts with the party controlling the Parliament.

Members of the public lawfully, are bound only by Common Law.

The RSPCA’s Royal patronage was called into question several years ago when LNP Senator Bridgette McKenzie wrote to the Queen asking her to remove her patronage from the gamin animal protection society after the group tried to kill off family farming in NSW and Victoria.

RSPCA and Animals Australia lawyer and ambulance chaser Tracey Jackson is after farmers and pig hunters who perform a necessary and welcome public contribution by catching some of the million or more feral pigs

RSPCA solicitor and spokeswoman Tracey Jackson of Animals Australia, announced today the offensive against farmers and pig hunters would be taken up a few more notches in the policy review.

Jackson told ABC Radio her left lily-pad mob would be coming after livestock producers  claiming they were not in step with the “public perception” of alleged, cruel animal husbandry practices.

Such drivel about the ‘public perception’ when the vast majority of the public, other than a few scruffy, Gaia Greens and ambulance chasers like Jackson, couldn’t care less how livestock are being farmed just as long as the butcher has a stock of nice T bones.  

The alleged ‘public perception’ emanates from a few Animals Australia agitators and the Labor Left which has been trying to close down the bush for decades.

RSPCA survives by public subscription and we suggest pig hunters and farmers step up their Facebook exposure of this motley mob of con artists.

Farmers cannot expect much help from their respective primary producer bodies as they have been purchased by the Labor Party.

Some time ago the Victorian RSPCA was caught out lying about farm animal numbers and how these animals were being mistreated by farmers.

This article was published in Cairns New six years ago:

RSPCA CEO Heather Neil

RSPCA CEO Heather Neil said the group “will not turn our backs on any group of animals including those used in farming where there are more than 850 million animals that need a voice.”

A Mallee farmer, Mr Dick Worthington said Mrs Neil and PETA were “suffering from a terrible delusion, that animals are more important than humans.

“These poor misguided ‘feminatzis’ are taking public subscriptions under false pretences and there should be no taxpayer funds given to these anti-social groups whatsoever,” he said.

“There are only 22 million cattle, 75.5 million sheep, about 1.2 million horses and 4 million goats nationally, so the misinformation continues to harm the farming industry.

“There are about 102.7 million farm animals in the country so Mrs Neil’s 850 million animals, unless she counted cane toads and rabbits, is just like most of their propaganda, deliberate lies.”

Agforce rolls over supporting zero emissions to wipe out its farmer members

by R J Lee

It’s now official. Agforce once Queensland’s agricultural and pastoral representative body supposedly created to protect farming from megalomaniacal governments has again rolled over this time supporting the totally discredited theory of Al Gore’s climate change.

Ever since Agforce accepted government funding about 15 years ago the once representative farmer’s lobby group has become a puppet of the socialist Queensland Labor Party.

The climate cultists and the UN wan to wipe out farming as a part of their depopulation strategy

Agforce’s membership has dwindled to just over 5000 over the past decade largely because of its dalliance with the socialist policies of the Labor Party and ineffectiveness in negotiations to keep the Marxists out of food production.

Agforce simply toes the National Farmers Federation/Liberal Party nexus line with major issues such as so-called climate change, a part of the UN sponsored attack on farming world-wide based on the Agenda 21 now 30 environmental depopulation agreement signed in Rio by all governments in 1992.

Now Agforce CEO Michael Guerin says agriculture doesn’t want a free pass from its responsibility to the planet.

Mr Guerin is not intelligent enough to understand that agriculture’s primary responsibility to the planet is to feed it without the Albatross of United Nations depopulation plots aided and abetted by ‘governments’ such as the LNP and the ALP.

By 2050 if the zero emission target is met, plant life will cease to exist because it needs carbon dioxide and lots of it. A farmer would have to be delirious to aim for any reduction of CO2 at today’s levels let alone in 30 years time. Smart farmers should be making CO2 generators so they and their crops can survive, especially in a place like Australia with almost zero emissions now.

He says AgForce wants agriculture to lead Australia’s charge towards net zero emissions by 2050, not be exempt from it, and be recognised for the positive contribution it makes.

“Agriculture is a strong part of the climate change solution and is ready to take part in the conversation with Australia’s science community and political leaders to ensure an evidence-based approach was implemented to achieving our targets,” Mr Guerin said.

“It will be incredibly difficult for Australia to achieve its climate change targets if agriculture is excluded from our nation’s goal to reach zero emissions.”

Agriculture is doomed under the LNP/ALP/UN triumvirate using zero emissions as an ideological weapon

There it is Agforce members and to the remaining majority of the farming network. If you believe this hocus pocus you should not be involved in farming.

The only climate change the world is suffering is a deliberate man-made one that is being used as a weapon of war by Russia and China with the yanks coming a poor third.

We have been in an unofficial war with parts of the world for years and since at least Biden, using massive, proven beyond any doubt voter fraud, stole the US election in November.

The first rule of war is to know that you’re in one. The second rule of war is to delineate who is a friend and who is a foe and that, of course, in a covert area is very difficult to do.

It’s not just information warfare, it’s really 5th Generation Unrestricted Warfare.

We have lived the past several years being unrelentingly strafed by Unrestricted Warfare. The most challenging part of this is getting your head around it and achieving situational awareness, especially because very often, the enemy is not only domestic but it has also parked itself inside your head or inside the heads of your loved ones via unceasing propaganda (ABC), such that perhaps your friends and family have been conquered by the enemy and they are acting on behalf of the enemy and they don’t even know it.

This is a global, covert World War IV in 5th Generational Warfare. The primary means of it are informational, cyber and psychological, which means that most of the terrain is human, not physical…There is some physicality but most of it is human terrain.

Under the Agforce strategy and a dubious LNP federal government, farmers are facing a bleak future and woe betide the population should they be stupid enough to support the NWO Labor Party.

Zero emission nonsense will plough farmers and pastoralists six inches under. Until the agricultural sector wakes up that the UN is driving these depopulation policies under the guise of the Agenda 21/30 Treaty then they should pack up and live on a beach.

War is when your government tells you who the enemy is. Revolution is when you figure it out.”

Plandemic now affecting our food growers and prices go through the roof as crops are ploughed in

from ABC Rural

International travel restrictions are not only costing Queensland’s horticulture industry millions, they are also impacting the mental health of fruit and vegetable growers, a new report has revealed.

Key points:

  • Crop losses from labour shortages have more than doubled in the last month, costing farmers more than $43 million
  • Nearly 25 per cent of growers report a decline in mental health and physical health
  • Two-thirds of growers report financial stress and some are at risk of foreclosure

Crop losses from the labour shortage have more than doubled in the last month, now totalling more than $43 million, according to the National Farmer’s Federation’s Lost Crop register.

Backpackers once came to Australia to help farmers by harvesting crops. The attack on the food chain in the US has started in earnest with Biden. Now the LNP Government is killing our food chain by blithely following the plandemic dictates of the UN. Farmers are hurting badly through a lack of workers and food prices are going through the roof

Now, a new analysis by peak body Growcom has found 25 per cent of growers are reporting an associated decline in mental health, with 75 per cent experiencing financial stress.

On Queensland’s Scenic Rim, vegetable grower Mitch Brimblecombe knows the situation well. Still dealing with drought, he now faces another challenge.

“We were about to walk into a field, and I rang my labour contractor and said, ‘Right we need a few extra people,’ and he said, ‘Oh, I’ve got no one.'”

With international borders shut, the backpacker workforce that Australia’s fruit and vegetable industry rely on to pick their produce has disappeared.

So too has millions of dollars in income for farmers.

“There’s a lot of growers who haven’t registered or thought about their crop losses because they don’t want to think about it,” Mr Brimblecombe said.

“But that $43 million — [it] could be double that to be honest.”

Growcom have been processing the other information reported by growers on the Lost Crop Register.

“In many cases farmers are harvesting crops themselves, all through the night in some instances, it’s taking a toll on their physical health,” said Growcom’s Richard Shannon.

The Growcom analysis also found a number of growers reporting they were at risk of foreclosure.

“Watching their produce go to waste, that in many cases they’ve been looking after for 12 months or more — it’s their livelihoods that are at stake here,” Mr Shannon said.

Mr Brimblecombe said that the COVID-induced worker shortage was having a compounding effect.

“Certainly having all those factors come into it,” he said.

“You’ve got drought, bad prices, no labour to harvest your crop — it all takes a toll.”

The ‘quarantine bottleneck’

Industry advocates say they want federal and state governments to increase incentives and expand quarantine.

“The Federal Government will tell us that there is 20,000 or so Pacific Islanders with a job offer and visa to enter Australia and do this work, but the bottleneck is quarantine,” Mr Shannon said.

A spokesman for the Queensland government said that it continues to offer $1,500 payments to people who take up jobs in agriculture, that’s on top of up to $6,000 the Federal Government is offering to help with relocation costs.

But as of this week, just 93 people had applied for the Queensland scheme.

Mr Shannon acknowledges that the pandemic has highlighted the over-reliance on backpacker labour.

He said now was an opportunity to look at long-term labour supply.

One idea being floated is an industry-specific visa that would allow people to come and work during harvest, then return home.

“That’s an idea and a program that’s worked really well with Pacific Island nations,” Mr Shannon said.

More people seeking help

Dr Kirsten Hunter has been practising as a clinical psychologist in regional Queensland for 20 years, based in Toowoomba.

“There can be a culture in the agricultural world of not reaching out for psychological support,” Dr Hunter said.

“Of course the suicide risk amongst the male rural population is a bit scary, very scary.”

Hi Charlie, I am contacting you from the depths of Cape York Peninsula where quads reign supreme. Horses are now seldom used. Helicopters are sometimes used but are no longer cost effective on the Peninsula.  Bull catchers are another feature for mustering. Drones in North Queensland are not an option and never will be.

Quad bikes play an integral part of northern mustering and have relatively few serious accidents in comparison to other farm injuries

On the dusty plains of Nyngan NSW a drone could be used for mustering quiet European cattle  or coastal dairy cows or perhaps even sheep provided the pilot was capable and possessed stock mustering experience and the drone had at least 4 to 5 hours endurance..

But in spite of the best efforts of the NFF, Agforce, LNP and Farmsafe you will never rid us of quad bikes. No matter that new Chinese bikes will have dangerous roll bars fitted they are easy to remove with an angle grinder. The tragedy of it all is that popular Honda, Suzuki and Polaris recognise that ROPS of any design make their bikes unsafe  and consequently will stop selling their bikes in Australia.

OK for Nyngan where its too dry for trees to grow but on Cape York after a decade or two of communist Labor rule the lack of hot fires has allowed unprecedented vegetation thickening making stock grazing difficult.

Trying to navigate this scrub that used to be open plains with a dangerous vertical protrusion on a bike and getting hooked up on trees will cause accidents of unprecedented proportions.

Yeah as you said there could be logs in the long grass, but they don’t worry us because we burn the country before we muster or catch bulls then we can see any logs, or ant beds, or washouts, or holes, or stumps, or rocks or blackfellas with spears, which are far more dangerous than a quad bike without ROPS.

What we could do is bring a few of our quads with bullbars to NSW and Victoria open country and teach all your men how to ride one.

That would save a lot of accidents.

Kind regards

BB, Coen
