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

As a farmer I have little influence on important matters such as Live sheep export. Being a member of WAFarmers expands my views and puts them before Government.

As a General Council delegate I have a chance to meet and exchange views with top farmers from all around the state.
