Department says farmers are to blame

Wilson, K. (1990) Department says farmers are to blame. Elders Weekly, 1 February 1990. p. 6 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by Ken Wilson.

The Western Australian Agriculture Department responded to claims by the WA Farmers Federation (WAFF) that their system for reporting sheep deaths due to annual ryegrass toxicity (ARGT) is ineffective. The Department claim that, beyond the initial losses, farmers often did not report further losses and therefore their figures could not adequately capture the scale of losses.
