Australian Farmers: Sheep or Lions?
Three more Import permits approved…. No-one else to blame.. but its not too late
One of my favorite quotes.
“if you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten”
You can choose to be a “Sheep” or a “Lion” without over stating the obvious a sheep does what? Yes follows the herd and allows to be led … [and] a Lion? Well it is king of the jungle, a Lion knows that it has power, strength, confidence, experience and is fully aware of its environment and is supported by its “PRIDE”…. funny that? .. A Pride of lions are feared not afraid.. are you afraid? have you strayed from your Pride?… the sheep should be “very afraid’.. I don’t mean to offend anyone but seriously farmers are in business are they not? I understand that there are many pressures, responsibilities, environmental circumstances and of course many commitments for farmers but; in a fast developing Australian Agricultural market complacency is a death sentence and if you don’t stand unified with your Pride intact you will be at the mercy of those given a legitimate “Mandate” BY YOU!.. Its not too late you can Proscribe those who made this decision and boycott those who are abandoning Australian farmers.
“there has always been and there will always be more than enough grain produced in Australia to support Australian consumption.” __
Say It loud and Say It clear NO IMPORTS OF GRAIN INTO AUSTRALIA!
Pre-election there was one permit issued…. Post-election who knows how many more?

Could We See A Repeat Of 2007/8?
The PR Machine Against Grain Prices Has Been Set In Motion
PR Monster In Action
Keep a close eye on Major Newspapers, TV and Radio and watch this PR Monster In Action… These PR campaigns cost Millions and operate independently once initiated, until.. yes you guessed it The Government Of The Day Comes To The Rescue. I’d rather see the money spent on supporting farmers and or supporting low income families.
Personally I would rather see the industry to be more educated, more technically savvy, and self informed… [and] a more transparent flow of market intelligence.. Please no more cloak and dagger tactics, it only results in animosity, resentment and regret.. i.e failed relationships and mistrust.
Yes, the Australian Government has abandoned Australian farmers and left them to the wolves in the past; don’t let this threaten to imprison your future! .. get on with business and voice your disapproval …. Ask yourself, are your fellow farmers “Competitors” or “Partners”? If you think it through your answer is critical?. i.e PASSIVITY, under-management, and complacency leave you at the mercy of the market and big business, on the other hand; collectiveness, education and understanding creates confidence and awareness… ‘?
Voice your concerns, look for signals, get advice, ask questions, know your strengths, limitations, commitments and responsibilities… as do most good business people and you will feel confident and in control.
