MULGA OKAY TO FEED
NATURAL Resources Minister Anthony Lynham has assured Queensland farmers that they could still push mulga to feed stock.
Dr Lynham moved to dispel a continuing myth about the state’s responsible tree clearing laws.
“It’s important that our struggling farmers know that they can still push mulga to feed their stock,” he said.
“It’s disappointing that this myth continues to circulate – and I’ve even called the Federal Minister this morning to clear this up with him.
“Under the LNP, graziers could harvest up to 50 per cent of the regulated mulga on their property in a 10-year period. This has not changed,” Dr Lynham said.
The facts are:
■ Fodder harvesting is still self-assessable.
■ It is still free to notify to harvest under what’s now known as an acceptable development code.
