The Western Star - - RURAL WEEKLY -

AGFORCE has wished Bill Byrne well for his fu­ture and thanked him for his ser­vice as Queens­land Agri­cul­ture Min­is­ter.

AgForce gen­eral pres­i­dent Grant Maud­s­ley said he had es­tab­lished a good work­ing re­la­tion­ship with Mr Byrne dur­ing his two stints as Ag Min­is­ter.

“AgForce ac­knowl­edges Mr Byrne’s ef­forts in rolling out wild dog ex­clu­sion fenc­ing and help­ing to se­cure stamp duty ex­emp­tions for farm­ers pass­ing down the fam­ily farm to the next gen­er­a­tion,” he said.

Mr Maud­s­ley said AgForce had worked with Dr An­thony Lyn­ham on is­sues in his cur­rent port­fo­lio of nat­u­ral re­sources and mines, and would look to meet with him as soon as pos­si­ble to dis­cuss is­sues, such as drought and biose­cu­rity, in his new port­fo­lio of agri­cul­ture and fish­eries.
