Milking the consumer
I LIKE the flavour of a strong economy seasoned with the right amount of capitalism. But when my choice is greatly reduced - and I’m paying for it - I lose my appetite.
'That's so gay!'
HOMOPHOBIA is still rife in rural and regional Australia, and it’s costing us dearly.
Taming the trolls
IT'S an odd phenomenon: people who are stable, happy individuals with loving relationships and solid careers in the real world can turn into some of the most pessimistic, negative and aggressive people online.
Accentuate the positive
HOW can we shift the negative attitude on agriculture in Australia to a more productive, positive and proud one? We can all have a say.
Turning back the votes
WITH the issue of refugees and asylum seekers dominating the headlines, the merits of utilising refugees in rural and regional areas to assist in the well publicised shortage of 100,000 jobs is also being debated.
Bridging the Great Divide
WE ALL know there’s an increasing un-awareness of inner city Australians about where their food and fibre comes from, but it’s not their fault. Our rich agricultural history that once rode on the sheep's back is perhaps fading.
Get stuck in or get out
WHY do we tolerate the whingeing and whining of farmers who are no good at running their businesses?
Branded for success
PICTURE this: it’s 1957 in Australia. Your car is a chrome-smothered FE Holden, and a young Tassie farmer has his first drop of 1800 lambs.
Kiwis have an attitude
YEP, I said it: Kiwis have an attitude. And a bloody good one too, when it comes to agriculture.
Stating the origin
I MUST admit to a patriotic bias when it comes to food choices - and it would seem 87 per cent of Australians share this leaning, or want to. All they need are the tools to make informed decisions.
Playing it not-so-safe
HANDS up who’s done something with tools or machinery and said “S#!t! That was close”! Now: hands up who can’t show their hand, because they don’t have one any more?
No plan? No excuse
TIME to rummage in that “too hard” basket and pull out the dusty file on succession planning - but refrain from swiping it off your desk and under the carpet.
Chewing the fat
IN WELL over a century, we have become very effective at fattening stock, with rural and regional obesity at double the rates you'll find in the city.

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.
Chickpea prices have jumped $30 to $50 a tonne above global market values as farmers caught with soggy crops look for alternative grain supplies to fulfill their forward contract commitments.
