Farmer feedback sought to improve farm safety

The Victorian Farmers Federation’s Making our Farms Safer Project (VFF MOFS) is calling for farmer feedback to gauge the impact of the ‘Making our Farm Families Safer’ campaign, which aims to improve the safety of children on farms.

VFF President Emma Germano is urging farmers to complete a short anonymous survey that will be used to inform future campaigns and help reduce tragedy from striking Victorian farming families.

“We’re asking farmers themselves to do a short survey and let us know what worked as part of the campaign and what they’d like to see in future to assist us in our commitment to improve safety outcomes for children on farms.”

“This campaign couldn’t be more important. Recent figures from Agrifutures Australia reported 55 deaths on farms nationwide in 2022, demonstrating that we must continue to work towards keeping every family member and employee safe on our farms,” Ms Germano said.

The ‘Making our Farm Families Safer’ campaign, including the Child Safe on Farms handbook, was initiated in response to a Coronial recommendation in 2021 following the death of seven children on farms between 2016 and 2021.

It launched during Farm Safety Week in July 2021 and is primarily aimed at providing information, tools and resources to those caring for children aged 10-15, who are performing farm work tasks.

Since launching, one campaign video featuring the Head of Trauma and Burns Unit at the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, Dr Warwick Teague was viewed over 55,000 times on YouTube and the guidebook has been downloaded more than 1,000 times per month from the MOFS website.

“We know thousands of people viewed the campaign videos, read case studies and the guidebook. Now we’re asking farmers what they’d like to see in the future,” Ms Germano said.

The two minute survey and can be completed here or by visiting and is open until 23 May 2023.

This initiative was developed by the Victorian Farmers Federation Making Our Farms Safer Project with support from KidSafe Vic, the TAC and FarmSafe Australia.

Questions to ask before selling carbon

Have you noticed a lot of commentary about carbon markets in the press recently?  

An emerging carbon offset market offering payments for new carbon sequestered on-farm sounds like an interesting option for farmers hoping to reduce their emissions profile and diversify their business income stream. 

To support farmers learn more about getting involved in this market, Agriculture Victoria has developed a list of questions to ask before selling carbon

The first thing to consider is the reason why you might like to sell sequestered carbon from trees or soils on your property.

Questions include, but are not limited to: 

  • Does selling carbon fit your long-term property/business goal?
  • Might you want to retain your carbon for use in offsetting/insetting against your own farm emissions at some future point? 
  • Are you prepared to undertake benchmarking, ongoing sampling, and measurement activities to verify carbon stocks?

Participation as a seller of carbon is voluntary, so farmers get to choose if they would like to participate as a seller of carbon in the offsets market. Some questions to ask include, but are not limited to:

  • Will any longer-term covenants be placed on my land?
  • What happens if the carbon offset company goes broke?
  • Will the carbon offset company require access to my property and if so, how often? 

In addition to selling carbon, there are also many other practical ways that farmers can reduce emissions or increase carbon on their farm and the 'Making cent$ of carbon and emissions on-farm' booklet provides practical actions that farm businesses can take now to improve their emissions performance.

If you’re interested in selling carbon, seek independent legal and financial advice to ensure that you are aware of all the considerations and obligations that apply in this developing market.

Ground-breaking research set to establish better ryegrass management
Image of ryegrass in wheat

Researchers have made a scientific breakthrough which could significantly advance understanding herbicide resistance in ryegrass, with the new information set to help combat the weed for Australian grain growers.

Scientists from the University of Melbourne and CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, have completed the sequencing of the ryegrass genome, which will provide an understanding of how certain genes construct and deconstruct protein to build herbicide resistance.

The work is part of a Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) co-investment into the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry’s Advancing Pest Animal and Weed Control Solutions program. It is a global milestone for weed management that is expected to improve the fight against herbicide resistance by influencing optimal management strategies.

Sequencing a genome determines the entirety of a DNA sequence of an organism and its DNA patterns.

University of Melbourne Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Science, Dr Alex Fournier-Level, said understanding ryegrass’ DNA patterns is the start of being able to identify the presence of resistant genes and how they form.

“In the future, we’re wanting to be able to test the DNA of a weed in the paddock, sequence it and diagnose its level of resistant genes,” he said.

“In theory, we’ll be able to test a grower’s ryegrass and tell them in a timely manner which kind of resistance they may have and how best to treat it – as we’ll be able to easily identify whether their population has resistant genes present.”

Dr Fourier-Level said this information will allow ryegrass to be analysed at the molecular level and would inform which herbicide could best control the weed.

“DNA technology could allow an in-season diagnosis of herbicide resistance, to help growers manage resistant ryegrass varieties early, giving them more opportunity to control the weed,” he said.

“These advancements will also mean we’ll be able to look at resistance on a landscape scale, which is appropriate because herbicide resistance spreads. Being a conscious neighbour and minimising weed spread has benefits for the whole industry.”

When conducting the ryegrass sequencing, Research Associate Dr Jefferson Paril, from the University of Melbourne, sourced many populations of the weed from across south-eastern Australia.

GRDC Senior Manager Crop Protection, Dr Emma Colson, said the sequencing of the ryegrass genome is extremely exciting for herbicide resistance, which costs Australian agriculture between $2.4-4.5 billion annually.

“Weed management is crucial for improving growers’ bottom lines and this work will help develop more timely, accurate options to address ryegrass on farm,” she said.

“It’s so important GRDC invests in this world-class work that’s leading the way in weed management and fighting herbicide resistance.

“This is a huge deal for the grains industry and should be celebrated as a milestone that is helping Australian grain growers handle a significant issue that impacts our industry dramatically.”

CSIRO Senior Research Consultant, Dr Rahul Rane, said the broader Australian Pest Genome Partnership, which this project forms part of, is sequencing genomes of Australia’s top pest and invasive species.

“Having access to genetic blueprints of pests and weeds will underpin next generation species-specific solutions,” he said.

More information on this work can be found via CSIRO’s Australian Pest Genome Partnership (APGP) project page HERE.

Get expert advice on cattle health

Agriculture Victoria is teaming up with RSPCA Victoria to present a webinar about cattle health and biosecurity management.

Keeping Your Cattle Healthy, to be held on Wednesday 10 May from 6 to 7 pm, will provide smaller-scale farmers with important information and practical tips to help ensure their cattle are healthy, productive, and profitable.

The session will cover a range of topics, including how to manage on-farm biosecurity, assessing and monitoring cattle health and feed requirements.

Brett Davidson from Agriculture Victoria and Rachael Laukart from RSPCA will be presenting at the webinar.

Both presenters have extensive experience in animal management and are passionate about helping Victorian farmers to care for their animals.

“Livestock health and productivity go hand-in-hand, and both are crucial for the success of any farming operation,” Mr Davidson said.

“By implementing good biosecurity measures, all landholders can better protect their cattle and farms from diseases and pests.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with RSPCA Victoria to deliver this webinar and provide practical advice to small scale farmers on how to improve the health and wellbeing of their cattle.”

Ms Laukart said RSPCA Victoria is excited to be working with Agriculture Victoria and sharing their expertise with the community.

“Management of livestock’s ongoing health and welfare requirements are vital to producing high quality agriculture produce.

“It may sound obvious, but productive farms need productive animals, which is why a healthy herd and having the skills to assess and manage your livestock’s health are essential.”
