The Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) has warmly welcomed the outstanding suite of initiatives announced by Energy Minister Guy Barnett and Minister for Primary Industries and Water Sarah Courtney today at Longford.

TFGA CEO Peter Skillern said that energy and irrigation were key pillars of the organisation’s State Election Policy Platform released earlier this year.

“It is pleasing to see the Government actively engaging with the State’s peak farming organisation,” Mr Skillern said.

“These initiatives will assist Tasmanian farmers to remain profitable and sustainable as we work towards growing the value of the agricultural sector to $10 billion a year by 2050.”
