It was a disappointing saga that Terry Redman could have solved but he did not want to. Unfortunately the reform meant pastoralists would need a social license to go about their business. The members of the new rangelands board (picked from society) would include people who are opposed to pastoralism, live export and agriculture. Redman's disdain for Pastoralists knows no bounds and this reform overtly shows his position. Those pastoralists that support Redmans reform are showing elements of Stockholm syndrome and need help. Well done to the Premier and the PGA for heading off a disaster.

What a load of rubbish we need Australian investment not overseas our polices want to sell us out. Keep Aussies on farms.

Good these guys will be able to help the farmers they are treating like second class peasants. This is wrong poor farmers would feel great reading this. The profit was made from their blood.

Recognise but gouge them (the growers) and maximise returns to shareholders!
If growers fall for this they will have no one to blame but themselves for the consequences.

Oh my GOD I was wrong. It was the USD dollar all along.

Brad Jones needs to go for a tour around SA and ask some growers over there what they think about the idea of listing CBH.

Are the big crops for sale at the lowest prices in 7 years ? Must be below cost of production, we are sure heading that way here

I see no economic assessment in this article to say these agreements are beneficial. How is it, that members of parliament (who are not personally financially liable to Australians) can make decisions with no due diligence/transparency undertaken, that allow the citizens of Australia to be financially liable? This is further evidence that gov't does not work on behalf of Australians, instead the shareholders of global corporations. If they are prepared to make citizens financially liable, why not themselves?. Where is our selective libertarian who dislikes gov't

Here we go again- more advice from a brains trust on how grain producers might manage in an industry that is spiralling out of control due to the obligation free power that the middlemen now hold.

This is why the GGL hand pick and vote in the Directors they want using members UNDIRECTED Chairman's vote. If the members vote was used we would have fresh faces in the Board room with fresh Ideas and no Club mentality. It's time for members to actually read the Voting booklet and make a choice and not leave it to the Chairman to decide. Stand up or loose it! Time for GGL Board to elect the members choice not their own or the will slip into oblivion and GPA will Take over !

To MERELY enquire about getting a key cut to move a vehiicle that does not belong to you. Mr Culleton makes it sound so trivial. I should do that for all the cars I feel are unsafe in our street.
Why did'nt Mr Culleton SIMPLY Call the rightful owners to move it if he was so concerned about it's "safe being". Has me wondering about his alleged plans to put that claim over it. And by his comments in this report he seems to have already admitted knowing who the owners were and where the car was since he admits to enquiring about a key for it. Was'nt this car reported missing for months ??

It can't be denied that the welfare standards in agriculture are way behind other sectors of industry and public life where welfare regulations apply. The welfare protection for pets is far higher than farmed animals, and most importantly the welfare protections for animals within scientific research is far higher and more strongly regulated. It's inconsistent that there is so little oversight and protection under law for animals in agricultural systems. I have zero expectation this comment will actually be published.

Growers might consider who they deal with a bit more. Sometimes, the best price comes with added risk. Why put your self in an exposed position with a small trader for a couple of extra $$ per tonne???

All Labours fault.
Yet water buy backs closed over subscribed.
Surly the point of this story is not a handful of jobs will make an impact.

How are farmers meant to defend the safety of their produce when it is neither their area of expertise nor publicly available?. Perhaps farmers and activists will realise they are been used as a battering ram to complete the divide and conquer strategy that these crooks use. The ones u should be talking to are the ones who give u your orders Mr Entine, not wasting time trying to stir up trouble.
