Australian Farmers experiencing severe drought conditions need financial and other assistance NOW. Please sign and share.
With the searing heat waves, lack of rainfall, stock starving and dying in paddocks from lack of food and water and from heat stress, farmers are really struggling at the moment. They are also struggling as the stock markets have fallen to very low prices for sheep and cattle markets, which means their incomes have also fallen but the costs have risen for those who need to buy food (ie hay/grain/roughage) and/or water for their livestock to keep them in a healthy condition or forward store condition, as well as drench/worming/vaccination products (to manage and/or prevent mortality, worm infestations, lice/tick infestations, disease etc), basic farm running expenses such as fuel, morgages, LHPA and property rates, salt/mineral blocks for livestock, transportation costs of feed, agistment costs for those who have ran out of feed, NLIS and eartags, etc. Farmers arealso struggling for every day basic living expenses such as food, electricity, phone, power and healthcare expenses. Support your farmers who provide many products for the community such as jobs, meat, wool, milk, fruit, vegetables, grain products (ie wheat and other grains & cereals to make food products such as bread, cereals etc) and many other things, who are the backbone of the Australian economy.
