A place to find resources, discuss and learn about beef cattle farming and all its nuances. Okay, a place to joke around about farming, I guess.

Leanne has a job history like a jigsaw puzzle. She believes it's important to know and understand a lot of things in life; or at least have a broad understanding so conversations can be approached easily. That's why if you dig a little deeper you will find she has dabbled in many careers/jobs which include Administration, secretary, selling, marketing, farming, QA, OH&S, auditing, hospitality, gluten free bakery, Accountancy and Aged Care. Recently Leanne and her husband launched another facet of their farming venture - Huon Farms Free Range EGGS!!!

ETS - Emissions Trading Scheme - Legislation.

The ETS is beginning to make me a bit nervous.

Not that I can say I understand what it will all mean for our future.

In fact, I've only heard bits & pieces. You know, like, cows and sheep are producing too many farts and burps and somehow that causes global warming or some such, and the end result being we have to pay for that.

Aha!

It's another tax - of course - the Australian Government had to find a way to make up for the boo! boo! with the GST's introduction. 'Course the only bit I took any notice of was, the FARMERS PAY as usual, bit. My other thought on the matter was, "Is this a way to get Farmers to grow vegies and fruit and make everyone on the globe become Vegetarians?" Are the ETS people "in" with the PETA people?

Oh well, until I can understand more about this whole ETS "thingy", I guess I'll say nothing more on the matter.

* ETS = Emissions trading scheme
