"I'm selling EU steers for AUD$3.55 per kilo dressed weight, even with 25% wastege for meat and trimmings, that's less than $5/kg for the saleable meat. And I pay the freight to the abottoir and the statutory levies out of that. Compared…"
"It's a peculiar correlation, but isn't it interesting that whenever the Government 'privatises' something (water, electricity. telecom, GIO, Banks) before long the service/product/commodity is in short supply or controlled by a…"

I'd like to make the point that in my view all 'successful' industries or businesses can be linked back to Government policy 'picking…"
"Let's not forget that the native veg laws were passed under the Howard/Costello/Anderson/Vaile watch, so don't think changing back to them will offer any long term improvement in policies. The real problem is that there is no real choice…"
