5 Driving Tips To Stay Safe At The Roundabout

Some non-Corona Virus advice to get you through the day

The news is full of Covid-19 right now, but there are other dangers in the world that YOU need to look out for.

Roundabouts, however, make intersections much safer.

Here's how to stay safe driving around the roundabout.

Tamworth braces for shutdown: 12 more coronavirus cases diagnosed in Hunter New England Health district

Tamworth braces for shutdown: 12 more coronavirus cases diagnosed in Hunter New England Health district

Northern Daily Leader - Madeline Link

ANOTHER 12 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus [covid-19] at the weekend in the Hunter New England Health district, bringing the total to 30.

The news comes as Premier Glady Berejiklian announced today that NSW would go into "comprehensive shutdown" of non-essential services.

"Tonight I will be informing the National Cabinet that NSW will proceed to a more comprehensive shutdown of non-essential services," she said.

Supermarkets, petrol stations, pharmacies and convenience stores, freight and logistics and home delivery will remain open.
The shutdown will take place over the next 48 hours.

Schools will be open on Monday but Ms Berejiklian is expected to make more comment on that in the morning.

March 2020

GRDC Northern Region team members are just back from Grains Research Updates throughout Queensland and New South Wales. It was great to catch up with so many growers, agronomists and researchers at the events and even better to hear many regions had received rain. Let’s hope there is more on the horizon and everyone gets a winter crop in this season.

If you didn’t make it to an Update, you’ll find a lot of the valuable presentations from these events on our website. And if you did attend one of the Updates, you may find yourself or a colleague in social photo galleries from Wagga Wagga, Dubbo and Goondiwindi Grains Research Updates.  To view the latest Newsletter click the heading.

Don’t panic: Aussie farmers have your back

Don’t panic: Aussie farmers have your back

National Farmers

Fears of a coronavirus lockdown have left supermarket shelves looking empty, but there is plenty of food to go around.

Thanks to our world-class farmers, Australia is one of the most food-secure countries on Earth.

Between 80-96% of the food on our supermarket shelves is Aussie grown. In fact our Australian farmers produce enough food to feed 75 million people.

That’s triple Australia’s population!

NFF welcomes Basin report's focus on community & solutions

NFF welcomes Basin report's focus on community & solutions

National Farmers

The National Farmers Federation has welcomed the release of the Murray Darling Basin Social and Economic Assessment Panel Draft Report.

Led by an independent panel comprised of Basin industry leaders, the report highlights the experiences of communities and how they have been affected by the myriad of reforms to water management in the Basin.

“The report’s findings are similar to the messages the NFF heard on our tour across the Basin last month: there is a need to bring communities back to the heart of the conversations and actions that ultimately impact their futures.”

Nation’s farm confidence rebounds to highest level in almost five years

Nation’s farm confidence rebounds to highest level in almost five years

National Farmer Federation

Australian farmers have stared down one of the toughest summers on record with rural sentiment bouncing back to its highest level in nearly five years, according to the latest Rabobank Rural Confidence Survey.

The survey results, released today, reveal late-summer rainfall and strong commodity prices have boosted optimism about farm business conditions for the year ahead, reviving plummeting sentiment following one of the driest springs on record last year.

However the results are tempered by the ongoing recovery in regions ravaged by bushfires across the country and those areas where there is still a significant rainfall deficit and ongoing drought.

Migration important to population growth

RDA Orana 30 January 2020

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana director Megan Dixon said the Orana region has huge potential for an expanded population, with migration support and economic development paramount for future growth.

“Migration to Australia’s regional areas has already had a positive effect on employment levels, community growth and economic development,” she said.

“Skilled migration has contributed to rural and regional communities struggling with labour shortage, family drift and changing market demands.”
