14th May is the deadline to apply for up to $6,000 worth of aid for stock containment.
If your property is in the Wimmera, Mallee, North Central, Goulburn Broken and Glenelg management authority regions, you can apply for assistance from the Victorian Government’s drought-support fund.
This blog author recently wrote a brief story about a farmer who has erected a SUN-POWER Auto Gate in combination with a stock grid (click here to read/view). You may be considering a stock grid. Possibly less investment, a SUN-POWER Gate automation Kit that includes an Australian-Made Gate Operator, might be a good solution for your stock containment yard. Be quick to apply for the grant. Grant applications can be made to the relevant catchment authority for you region.
