NSW Farmers Executive Visit Caroona
The executive council of NSW Farmers, drawn from across the State, saw the productivity and fertility of the Liverpool Plains for themselves on Monday via a bus tour conducted by CCAG.
“We felt it was important for The Executive to see that if prime agricultural land such as the Liverpool Plains is under threat, no farming land in Australia is safe from ‘developments’ such as mining”, said Tim Duddy as he thanked the 60 members present for their support.
NSW Farmers President Jock Laurie addressed the group, applauding the People Power that had resulted in the Water Study Process and CCAG’s continuing committment to protecting food producing land. He urged all farmers to be aware and involved in the issue, and to actively inform others within their own networks, so that food and water security could become a higher priority in any government’s thinking.
As he said “People lead, governments follow”.
