ICSA rural development chairman Billy Gray has welcomed the announcement by Agriculture Minister Coveney to extend the deadline for submitting paperwork for the farm safety and sheep handling scheme.

“It is a common sense position to take, although we were disappointed that the Minister did not see the need for a longer  extension” he said.

“Farm safety is a very important issue and we would encourage anyone who has commenced work to follow through and have it completed by the extended deadline.”
