When Will the Government Listen

Call this drought what it is - a Natural Disaster

This drought is breaking records, pushing families and communities to the brink − and it’s getting worse.

Across NSW, it’s drier than many have seen in their lifetimes. Farms that have never in their hundred-plus year history destocked, have sold all their livestock.

Farmers that had enough hay in storage for years of drought have used their last bale.

Farmers that have never complained, have gotten on with the job, have put food on tables across the world − are asking for assistance.

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart to launch her self-published book at Gloucester Bookshop

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart to launch her self-published book at Gloucester Bookshop

From the Gloucester Advocate story by Anne Keen

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart had a niggling interest in researching her family history.

Like many Australians, her family tree has a range of convicted criminals, which was partly what first piqued her interest. But it was chasing down that tale of her great great grandmother, Margaret Murphy which inspired her to write a book.

 

She started researching her relative by first acquiring Margaret's death certificate as it provided details of her date of death, the date and location of her birth, and the names of her parents.

GRDC Dealing with the Dry Info Session Wednesday 24 July at Rowena

Published on Monday, July 08, 2019

GRDC Dealing with the Dry Info Session Wednesday 24 July at Rowena

Firsthand experience of drought and an understanding of the toll it can take on farming businesses, bank
balances and emotional well-being was the catalyst for a series of Dealing with the Dry: Farm management
options during and after drought forums being run across northern New South Wales next month.
Initiated by Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Grower Relations Manager Susan
McDonnell, the forums aim to deliver practical advice ranging from how to talk about debt with your bank
manager, to accessing government services and identifying and supporting mental health issues.
A grain grower herself, Mrs McDonnell said the GRDC Dealing with the Dry forums would be run in small
communities across NSW and were focused on delivering genuinely helpful information directly to those in
need.
“Unfortunately, like many people involved in rural industries, I know only too well the impact of drought. It can
be extremely demoralising and leave you wondering how you will get through both from a financial and
psychological perspective,” she said.
“These forums are about bringing communities together and offering support and advice on some really
challenging topics, like how we talk to our bank manager about debt and what we can do to put ourselves in
the best possible position for that conversation.
“As growers we all know our long-term business goals have been put on hold due to our income changes
with the drought, so this is about understanding the different ways we can effectively manage our debt and
limited cash flow while planning for the future.
“These forums aren’t about having all the answers. Instead, they are about starting interactive discussions
and offering opportunities to question experts and build on our knowledge.”
Mrs McDonnell said rural financial counsellors would also present at the forums on how and what
government services growers could access during dry times.
“As growers we don’t always have the time to fully investigate options when it comes to government services
so this is a chance to hear what is available and how you can access it,” she said.
Specialists consultants will also offer guidance on managing dry conditions and evaluating farm planning for
when the season breaks.
“We have invited experienced local farm advisers at each event to be part of this session so we are hearing
realistic options for local conditions,” Mrs McDonnell said.
“Like many people involved with the GRDC, the drought is my daily reality too and while I know there is a
limit to what we can do on-farm while it is dry, there are steps we can take to put ourselves in the best
possible position to get through these tough times.”
The GRDC Dealing with Dry forums are open to growers, farm advisers and other community members and
industry stakeholders and are free of charge. The first round of forums will be held on:

GRAINS RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION ABN 55 611 223 291
