PART 1. MOUNTAIN CATTLEMEN RESPOND TO THE VICTORIAN NATIONAL PARKS ASSOCIATION OPPOSITION TO ALPINE CATTLE GRAZING. THE VNPA CLAIMS: “GRAZING SPREADS WEEDS”.
Item Number: 10565
Part 1: The Victorian National Parks Association (VNPA) originally accepted that Cattlemen had a place in the High Country. But in the late 1970s changed its position, and since then has consistently opposed alpine grazing and is using the caucus committee to have another go. The VNPA case is set out on it’s website and the Mountain Cattlemen take this opportunity to answer their charges. This video answers complaints re the introduction of weeds by cattle grazing in Alpine region. Interviews with Simon Turner and Peter Attiwill, retired Professor of Botany from Melbourne University.
