The Victorian Farmers Federation appreciates the opportunity to provide comment on the
proposals for the Nillumbik Shire Local Law review.
The VFF is Victoria’s peak farming body and has been the voice of Victorian farmers and rural communities since 1979.
Recognising that agriculture is an intrinsic part of Nillumbik’s history, economy, identity and its present day community life we are deeply concerned by the proposals to ban both barbed wire and glyphosate.
The VFF strongly opposes the proposals and is calling for both proposals to be rejected.
