Grass Fed Cattle Levy Senate Inquiry

On 12 December 2013 the Federal Senate agreed to Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce’s request that the Senate hold an urgent inquiry into the governance of our current grass fed cattle industry structures and the ability of levy payers to influence the amount and investment of the grass fed cattle levies that they pay.

A group of cattle producers who are concerned that our current organisational structures no longer meet the collective needs of the grass fed cattle industry have set up a non-partisan website:

http://www.cattlelevysenateinquiryinformation.com

The website contains the full terms of reference and background information for the Senate Inquiry together with contact details of Concerned Cattle Producers (CCP) spokespeople.

If you don’t believe that you are getting value for the levies that you pay the Senate inquiry is your opportunity to have your say individually, or in groups, or through the CCP submission.

All submissions must be lodged by 1 March 2014.
