General Section

It is a forum where a range of issues impacting every facet of primary production can be raised and discussed. The inclusion of a number of dedicated committees covers important issues ranging from transport, biosecurity and water.

On a daily basis, the General Section represents farmers on a wide range of industry issues including:

  • Agricultural protection;
  • Biotechnology;
  • Competition;
  • Education and training;
  • Land clearing and management;
  • Occupational health and safety;
  • Special issues;
  • Trade;
  • Transport; and,
  • Water resources.

Our business is a member of WAFarmers because we want to support our industry and ensure farmers have input into the decisions made by governments and others that have such a big impact on how we can farm. Through WAFarmers I have enjoyed meeting and working with some really committed farmers and pastoralists who put in many, many volunteer hours in trying to make a difference for their industry. We all need to do our bit in support of our industry - many voices will give us a stronger voice.
