The farm sector has been told to learn from the experience of the mining industry and use international scientists to fill holes in the national workforce. Agribusiness Council of Australia chairman Ian Joseph said a short-term solution was needed to meet agricul- tural scientist shortages. The proposed remedy mirrors the method used by Ms Rinehart to recruit 1700 workers for a West Australian mining project. He said agriculture also needed to modify the 457 visa category to find qualified people. He was speaking at a Senate hearing in Melbourne investigating the lack of students studying agriculture. The inquiry has been told there were about 4000 vacancies for graduates, but universities last year only produced between 600 and 700. Mr Joseph also suggested heavy investment in promotion of agricul- tural careers. ''Then, in a period of five years, we will start to see those kids come out of the educational institutions, and we can also benefit from the undergrad- uates who come in under the 457 visas,'' he said. The Australian Council of Deans of Agriculture cautiously welcomed the idea, but secretary Professor Jim Prat- ley warned against recruiting gradu- ates without required experience. Greater emphasis should be on alerting young Australians to oppor- tunities now available in food pro- duction, he said. ''As a prosperous country we shouldn't pinch expertise from other countries where it's also needed for food security,'' he said. National Farmers' Federation spokesman Brian Duggan called for a national agri-food workforce centre to be established. Accurate data then could be gath- ered, across industry.

Mr Bennett said the family's on- farm cheese-tasting facility and shop was also important from a marketing perspective. Each year thousands of visitors form overseas, interstate and locals visit the popular shop. ''It's all about brand recognition, so hopefully people that come here to visit, when they go home they look for our brand because they've actu- ally been here,'' he said. The milk is mainly sold locally. ''We've got a bit of a niche market there and it's been pretty steady for a while,'' he said. ''It was important that we had an established market for the milk before we invested in the factory -- and we've got plenty of capacity there now.''
