TAS Country : March 15th 2012
News Friday, March 16, 2012 Tasmanian Country 11 NEW VENTURE: Brendon Rockliff with his Skelbrook Vale free-range pork. and large vegetable patches around the butchery that customers could use to pick their own fruit and vegetables while buying some meat. ''We want it to be a place where families can come and have a really good time,'' Mrs Rockliff said. To ensure a constant supply of stock for the butchery, Mr Rockliff said they had changed their pro- duction system and were now plant- ing cereals and some fodder crops to finish stock year round. They have also bought three sows and a boar and are growing their own free-range pigs. ''We'd never had pigs before so that was a bit of a learning curve, but they're going well and they're actu- ally really nice animals to have around,'' Mr Rockliff said. They also produce their own lambs and buy in store cattle to finish as required. To find out more about the butchery or to get a product price list, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Spraying reforms delayed REFORMS to aerial and ground spray- ing regulations are being delayed. The Minister for Primary Industries and Water Bryan Green is seeking more time for the Legislative Council to consider reforms to aerial and ground spray regulations before debat- ing the legislation. Mr Green said debate on the Agricul- tural and Veterinary Chemical (Con- trol of Use) Amendment Bill 2011 was due to resume this week in the Legislative Council. ''I have asked for debate on the Bill to be deferred to give the Legislative Council the opportunity to be fully briefed by the Agricultural, Silvicul- tural and Veterinary Chemical Coun- cil,'' Mr Green said. Mr Green said he also wanted to consider further feedback from industry. ''Consultation with all key stake- holders and taking account of com- munity concerns is an important part of the process,'' Mr Green said. Mr Green said current regulations would apply until new legislation was passed. AUSVEG calls for nominations THE AUSVEG national awards for excellence are now open for nomi- nations.
