Surging Farm Rents
To Have 'Massive Impact'

Surging Farm RentsRural lobby group AgForce is seeking an urgent meeting with Queensland Treasurer Andrew Fraser to discuss rising leasehold rents. The group is surveying members about the impact of rising rents on farm profitability. Yesterday, Natural Resources Minister Rachel Nolan said rents were reasonable and it was a "stretch" to suggest viability was being threatened. However, Boulia Mayor and grazier Rick Britton says his rent payment is up considerably from 2004 and rural councils are worried about the impact.

The Carbon Tax Legislation
Farmers Now Look To Mitigate The Carbon Tax Negatives

The Carbon Tax LegislationThe National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) has expressed its disappointment at the passage of the carbon tax legislation through the Senate today. “Ultimately, the carbon tax risks compromising the competitiveness of our agricultural industry,” NFF President Jock Laurie said. “We have fought against the introduction of this tax, as we know that it is going to add extra costs into our farm businesses. The figures speak for themselves – we know farmers are going to shoulder the burden of additional input costs, in some cases up to $10,000 per annum, and we still have real concerns about processing sector costs being passed back to farmers.

Managing Weaners
To Boost Growth & Reduce Mortalities

Managing WeanersMaximising weaning weight and post-weaning growth rate can boost weaner survival and set up the reproductive performance of maiden ewes to increase profits. Weaner mortalities are estimated to cost the Australian sheep industry $89 million annually in lost production and individual producers up to $20/lamb. To help address this issue, MLA is contributing to the Sheep CRC’s High Performance Weaners (HPW) training course.

Crean Defends Assistance
Crean Defends Assistance To Help Regions Cope With Carbon Tax

Crean Defends Assistance Regional Australia Minister Simon Crean insists there's wide-ranging assistance available to help communities adjust to the carbon tax. In the Senate last night, long-time critic of a carbon price, Nationals Senator Barnaby Joyce, said jobs and communities would be devastated by the tax, which will be introduced next July. But Mr Crean says he's found regional communities are keen to reduce emissions and embrace cleaner energy options. He says that when he visits regional areas he doesn't find the opposition to the carbon tax that the Coalition presents in Canberra.

Toxins In Human & Fetal Blood
Caused By Genetically Modified Food

Toxins In Human & Fetal Blood Research in Canada has identified a Bt toxin, produced by genetically modified (GM) insect resistant crops, in the blood of women. The study also shows the toxin was passed on through fetal blood. The study was undertaken at Sherbrooke University Hospital in Quebec where a team of researchers studied samples of blood from 30 pregnant women, 30 umbilical cords and 39 non-pregnant women – all women were close in age. The study shows the long-term held belief that all Bt-toxin is destroyed in the gut to be untrue.
