Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

AUS­TRALIA’S Land­care heros were cel­e­brated last night at the Na­tional Land­care awards.

Min­is­ter for Agriculture David Lit­tleproud said he was proud to recog­nise Aus­tralians who worked to pro­tect the environment and deliver sus­tain­able agriculture.

“The best farm­ers also look af­ter the environment,” Min­is­ter Lit­tleproud said.

“I’m a huge fan of Land­care. It shows the very best of Aus­tralian farm­ing – look­ing af­ter birds and an­i­mals while in­creas­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity.

“Land­care is a key part of the clean, green international im­age which helps our farm­ers get bet­ter prices for their pro­duce.”

Sixty five fi­nal­ists in nine cat­e­gories came to­gether from across Aus­tralia.

Min­is­ter Lit­tleproud said awards recog­nised im­por­tant work.

“The Land­care awards recog­nise and re­ward lead­er­ship and in­spire oth­ers to join the cause, which im­proves farm pro­duc­tiv­ity and prof­its,” he said.

“I con­grat­u­late all of the fi­nal­ists and thank them for their con­tri­bu­tion to the fu­ture of Land­care.”
