The Singleton Agricultural Support Coordination Centre is now open to assist Hunter farmers with animal and agricultural support following recent flooding. Farmers with animal emergencies or requiring animal rescues should contact the NSW State Emergency Service (SES) on 132 500 immediately. Farmers who require assistance with livestock welfare, transport and fodder requests as well as damage assessments should also contact the SES. All non-emergency requests will be directed to the Singleton Agricultural Support Coordination Centre for action.
WarningA sheep graziers warning has been issued for most regions of NSW
Newborn lambs and recently shorn sheep are particularly at risk and should be kept in sheltered paddocks. In flood risk areas, livestock should be moved to high ground. Also ensure plenty of feed reserves in accessible storage above flood level.
The rates you pay to Local Land Services allow your local region to fund the services it provides to landholders and contribute to other important statewide functions.
