Panic buying and effects on Pastoralists

With all the panic buying occurring in major hubs around Western Australia and the rest of the country, please spare a thought for those isolated on pastoral stations. As they usually only do one big shop fortnightly or monthly the limits and lack of groceries on the shelves are a real problem.

Pastoralists and their workers are helping keep our livestock and agricultural industries running in such an uncertain time and are feeling neglected with their calls for help going unanswered. We ask you to be thoughtful of our pastoralists in these trying times…If you or pastoralists you know are facing hardships during this time please reach out to your local Members of Parliament https://www.parliament.wa.gov.au/parliament/memblist.nsf/WAMembers

As always, you’re always welcome to contact us to!
