Agistment food for thought
ACCORDING to the Bureau
of Meteorology, we’re in for
some hot days in the late sum-
mer and early autumn.
The bureau’s February to
April maximum temperature
outlook shows chances of
greater than 60 per cent for
warmer than normal days over
the state. I think that means
more probably than not.
There is plenty of summer
remaining and it doesn’t take
long for things to dry out, par-
ticularly when we see wind like
we did last weekend.
Some Tasmanian farmers
will now be starting to think
about cattle agistment and
emergency fodder supplies.
The TFGA is making it eas-
ier for farmers to ascertain the
availability of agistment and
fodder through a register,
which will be on our website,
In simple terms, the register
shows where other farmers
have available land to agist cat-
tle from dry areas and where
they have excess feed that may
be available to help out farm-
ers who are in trouble.
Agistment may be a better
economic proposition than
handfeeding, particularly if
there is a considerable paid la-
bour component. Long-term
returns may favour good agist-
ment over the maintenance
feeding of stock during pro-
longed dry spells.
Reaching an agreement to
agist cattle takes some plan-
ning and forethought by all
parties because responsibilities
and rights are involved. That
usually involves an agistment
contract. So people would be
wise to put their thinking caps
on now and perhaps compare
notes on agreements that have
been drafted in the past.
An agistment contract
should describe the responsi-
bilities of the livestock owner
and the agistor. It should also
set out procedures for dealing
with problems that may arise.
Common issues include in-
spection of the agistment site;
stock numbers; cost of trans-
port; change in environment;
human responsibility for the
agisted stock; stock-handling
facilities; period of agistment;
and fees and insurance.
Livestock owners are nor-
mally responsible for paying all
costs for care of their stock, in-
forming agistors of diseases af-
fecting stock and treatment,
insurance and damage.
Agistors may require a lien
over the stock until any agist-
ment debt is paid and/or a
power of attorney concerning
the stock and progeny so that
the agistor has the power to
sell the stock after all reason-
able efforts have been made to
obtain outstanding agistment
payment from the owner.
In other words, you might
think it’s a simple case of a
handshake and getting the
trucks rolling, but there can be
financial consequences that
could make you and the other
party enemies for life. So get a
written agreement up front.
As far as fodder is con-
cerned, the TFGA is continu-
ing to source short-term
fodder supplies from across the
state. If you have fodder you
are willing to sell, register by
phoning 6332 1800 or emailing
