Stuart Moodie has managed to rescue more than 100 native fish on the Mole River, in far northern New South Wales, by catching the fish by hand in muddy water and moving them into larger waterholes.


Farming family turns to food waste and 'reindeer poo'

Farming family turns to food waste and 'reindeer poo' to feed the animals and make ends meetSonny Willett loves living on the farm. He loves the view, the animals and riding his bike around the paddocks. But as the worst drought on record tightens its grip, his family has been struggling to make ends meet. "It's very sad because we have to go out of the area every day [to collect feed] because we have no food for the animals," Sonny said.

Scrapping the Murray-Darling Basin Plan risks a worse outcome for farmers

Scrapping the Murray-Darling Basin Plan risks a worse outcome for farmersAs furious irrigators prepare to descend on Parliament House in Canberra, unified by their desire to tear up the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, many others are questioning what doing so would achieve. The $13 billion plan to remove water from farmers and return it to the environment has never been popular in southern New South Wales, which is home for the vast majority of the protesters. They torched a draft version of the plan, and now, six years after it was formally enacted, they still want to burn it.

Extinction of farm animals threatens food security and genetic diversityAustralian agriculture is rapidly breeding out diversity within farmed animals, genetics which could one day be the key to stopping diseases and adapting to changing environments. The University of Western Australia's Catie Gressier said while extinction and biodiversity were issues often associated with native species, heritage and rare breeds of agricultural animals were also under threat, and many had already been lost.

Grants help bushfire recovery

Grants help bushfire recoveryNSW Farmers has welcomed joint federal and state government bushfire recovery grants of up to $15,000 for farmers and small businesses. NSW Farmers President James Jackson says the grants will provide some relief in the recovery effort, but the economic and mental health impact is much broader. “These bushfires have dealt a devastating blow to around 4500 farm enterprises in the north of the state, who are already doing their best to sustain their businesses through one of the worst droughts on record.

Water – Time to Turn On the Investment Tap

Water – Time to Turn On the Investment TapIn their infinite wisdom, the State and Commonwealth governments are marching to the beats of different drums when it comes to subsidising farm water supplies. The state government moved to end their own Farm Water Rebate Scheme 12 months ago. The scheme offered up to $15,000 every ten years to help cover the costs of dams, road catchments and tanks for farmers in districts receiving less than 600mm average annual rainfall.


Leadership, consistency and certainty needed to fix the Basin Plan

Leadership, consistency and certainty needed to fix the Basin PlanThe Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) is opposing moves that would see the Murray Darling Basin Interim Inspector General provided with expanded powers to examine water sharing arrangements between the States. VFF Water Council Chair Richard Anderson said changing the way water is shared between the states will create uncertainty and risks Victoria’s water security. “There is a finite amount of water available. This means increasing one state’s share is only possible by reducing the amount of water available to another.”
