Next round of funding for exclusion fencing
APPLICATIONS for the next round of wild dog exclusion fencing funding have opened.
AgForce General President Grant Maudsley said the continued Federal and State Government investment in wild dog fencing was helping to revitalise Queensland’s sheep and wool industry, create jobs and boost regional economies.
“Wild dogs have significant physical and financial impacts on the sheep, cattle and goat industries in Queensland through predation, the transmission of diseases and lost production,” he said.
“Exclusion fencing is vital to protect livestock and combat wild dogs. With the release of new guidelines for applications, we urge producers to work with their local natural resource management groups and councils to submit project plans that could benefit their area.”
