Call to suspend regulations

Member for Western Victoria Region, Bev McArthur is calling on State and Federal governments to immediately suspend any regulations limiting accessibility of roadside grazing permits. This initiative would allow bushfire-affected farmers dealing with a lack of feed and contaminated water supply, to bring their cattle to feed on the "rampant vegetation"on western Victoria's roadsides.

"Donations to Wildlife Victoria and the CFA are obviously charitable and thoughtful, but the real crisis is that facing stock owners", McArthur said. Ms Symes said the State Government would assist farmers with managing their stock. "It's devastating- of you lose your stock you lose your livelihood, so the priority is to get in there and assist farmers in assessing the damage" Ms Symes said.
