WISALTS column

(1986) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 23 October 1986. p. 60 [Publication] [Special Collections]


"If farmers can't grow anything, they can't pay their bills." So said Dr Ian Fairnie, director of Muresk, when he opened the WISALTS annual general meeting in Perth at the beginning of this month. Dr Fairnie talked of the need for agricultural education, and its increasing importance in the creating and restoration of wealth in the rural economy. The annual meeting was attended by members from all over the agricultural areas of the state. Pam McGregor of Denbarker was elected president of WISALTS for 1986/87; Mostyn Franklin of Three Springs continues as senior vice president, and Rod Nicholson of Moorine Rock continues as junior vice president. Peter Woodward of Wickepin will join the Committee for the first time, and one further committee member will be appointed to complete retiring president Lex Hardie's term on the committee. Mr Hardie was awarded a Life Membership of the Society at the annual general meeting.
