PART 7. MOUNTAIN CATTLEMEN RESPOND TO THE VICTORIAN NATIONAL PARKS ASSOCIATION OPPOSITION TO ALPINE CATTLE GRAZING. THE VNPA CLAIMS: “GRAZING THREATENS MANY PLANTS AND ANIMALS WITH EXTINCTION”.
Item Number: 10571
Part 7 : 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 part responds to claims that grazing is threatening Australian plants and animals. Commentary from Russell Mullett, Indigenous Spokesperson, [unidentified] and David Packham.
