Southern Dirt has passed your messages to government and will continue to do so during this crisis. 

Last night the Minister for Agriculture released a statement saying that food and agriculture production and supply chains will not be affected by Coronavirus shutdowns. Click here to view
What does this mean for members?

  • Shearing teams and other essential personnel will be allowed on farm as normal albeit with your increased human biosecurity measures.
  • All rural supplies stores will be open and trading. 
  • Transport delivery of fertiliser and other inputs will happen as usual. 

What to expect:

  • There may be delays in some deliveries if transport workers are affected by border control.
  • As the virus worsens there may be increased protocols around processors so they can remain open. 

Please email to let us know of any difficulties/worries you are having and I will pass it on to Government. 

Stay safe everyone!
