WISALTS column

(1987) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 22 October 1987. p. 10 [Publication] [Special Collections]


According to a recent article in the National Farmer, many city Australians still regard farmers as environmental monsters, who bulldoze trees for the fun of it, plaster their farms with toxic chemicals and blast kangaroos from 4wd's while sucking on stubbies. Before the Australian government can be convinced to spend more tax payers money on farmland conservation, this image has to be overcome. The National Farmers Federation "One Country" campaign, and recent media attention on the plight of farmers, has helped soften the harsh view some Australians have of their farmers.
