WAFarmers welcomes the official launch of the National Wild Dog Action Plan which will have a great impact on Western Australian producers.
Wool Section President Ed Rogister said wild dogs were a problem affecting producers across Australia, including in Western Australia where they resulted in significant stock losses, translating to financial difficulties for many farmers.
“The launch of this plan means there is now a nationally co-ordinated response to this widespread problem and should result in a shared solution,” Mr Rogister said.
“We extend our congratulations and thanks to WoolProducers Australia, particularly for their commitment to a collaborative approach which WAFarmers has significantly contributed to.”
Mr Rogister said it was now important for industry to continue to work together to implement the plan.
“It would be ideal to see the whole of industry, including research and development bodies, pull together in support of this plan to ensure its success,” he said.
