Agribuzz with David Leyonhjelm
I'm pretty sure I can speak on behalf of the Senator in that he supports poppy seed farming, not just in Tasmania but across the country, and he strongly oppose the excessive land management and clearing restrictions that are currently in place.
That being said, two wrongs don't make a right, and once you start fixing stupid things government does with more stupid things for government to do you end up with all sorts of debt and waste.
Many products are labelled with "maximum 10000 chickens per hectare" for example. That's something concrete and fraud should be punished severely. But "free to roam" doesn't say anything about densities. Courts are there to prevent fraud, not to act as dictionaries. Consumers are smart enough to look for some raw numbers rather than trusting vague words like "roam". The fact that the chickens are outside the cage and can move around is good enough here. If they want to specify densities, they can do so on the packaging, and consumers can only purchase products that are specific if they wish.
