What makes a farmer?
AGRICULTURE doesn't provide much shelter for dawdlers, or people that aren't self motivated.

AUSTRALIA is a big agricultural exporter, but is there an opportunity to value add by exporting labour, particularly management and proficiency?
Bernardi hits a PC nerve
LIBERAL Senator Cory Bernardi was spot on last week. But with just two points.

Time for a unified vision
IT SEEMS at a time of the year when we like to look back, the rear view of my divergent blog topics highlight many issues, but not all are unique to the sector.
That sentimental feeling
“A sentimentalist is one who desires to have the luxury of an emotion without paying for it.” Always wise words by that 19th-century British playwright and wit, Oscar Wilde.
Why the white anting?

The stories we tell
AGRICULTURE has some amazing stories to tell, but the biggest challenge we face is making our audience - the consumer – care enough to listen and act.
Activist 'nazis' ruin lives
HITLER once said: “Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage...” - sounds like the core values of an animal activist group to me.
Strong women, strong industry
IN AGRICULTURE, my generation of men and women are only just making ground in an older, male-dominated industry.
IN developed countries, is the “sustainable” in sustainable farming actually sustaining the right thing?
High time for hemp
TO the untrained eye industrial hemp looks and smells identical to the infamous illicit ‘pot’ plant. The problem is our short-sighted government can’t tell the difference either.
Georgian state of mind
FOREIGN investment in Australia continues to be a hot topic, attracting comments with some decidedly Georgian undertones.
The faithful few
DESPITE trying times in regional Australia, it seems the people of Australian agriculture have decided that faith in yourself, family and goals is more rewarding and beneficial for them than institutionalised religion.

China has followed through with flagged plans to resume importing United States beef, lifting a ban that has existed since mad cow disease was found in the States in 2003.
Indonesia has relaxed its trade restrictions on secondary beef cuts, re-opening a market that was worth $42 million to Australian exporters two years ago.
The recent rainfall will lead to a change in the micron profile of the Australian wool clip next spring, while boosting production volume and lamb marking rates.
While the favourable season is spurring lamb prices and providing more marketing options for producers, livestock agents are concerned rates are reaching unsustainable levels.
There will be more cases of sclerotinia in canola in areas that do not traditionally have problems with the disease due to the wet spring.
