Farmers pack hall for VNI West update

More than 300 people attended a recent VFF St Arnaud Branch meeting regarding the VNI West Transmission Project, highlighting the level of interest from the community.

VFF President Emma Germano said the turnout demonstrated the huge interest from locals in the area and reiterated the problems facing landholders.
