PART 6. MOUNTAIN CATTLEMEN RESPOND TO THE VICTORIAN NATIONAL PARKS ASSOCIATION OPPOSITION TO ALPINE CATTLE GRAZING. THE VNPA CLAIMS: “THE CULTURAL CLAIM OF CATTLEMEN IS WEARING THIN”.
Item Number: 10570
Part 6 : 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 the claim by the VPNA that the cultural claim by the cattlemen is ‘wearing thin’. Commentary from Sue Briggs, Simon Turner, Peter Attiwill and Doug Treasure.
