By Carol Saffer

Fiskville sheep farmer Scott Young was elected as the Corangamite Regional Councillor on the Victorian Farmers’ Federation (VFF) Livestock Council in July,

outing the sitting Councillor Chris Draffin.

The VFF Livestock Group is the peak representative

body for approximately 2000 farm businesses, most of

which are family owned and operated.

Elected

for

a

two-year term, Mr

Young told The

Moorabool News he sought election in order to be

involved in [creating] the policies for the farming

community and to represent the Moorabool area.

Mr Young, 46 years-old, together with wife Lisa and two daughters are third-generation farmers on their

760ha property Fernleigh Park.

While the Corangamite region covers the south western area of the state, Moorabool Shire is unique

with the peri-urban issue affecting the shire.

Mr Young says “the encroachment of the spread of

Melbourne affects us a bit different to shires further out [in the Corangamite region].”

“While we all have the same issues of land values and

rates going up and just getting a fair go for farmers in general, land values from land bankers is making a big

difference in our shire.”

Mr Young, who says he is constantly looking for ways to improve his current farming practices and

opportunities for diversification, makes a point of attending farm field days.

While at the Hamilton Sheepvention (Victoria’s biggest two-day farming event) recently, he was greatly impressed with the Southern Grampians Shire support

of the farming community.

“The Southern Grampians Shire (SGS) is actively

seeking farmers to move to the shire,” says Mr Young.

SGS completed a two-part project to explore the long-

term capabilities and suitability of land in the region.

On the completion of the project together with

SGS’s 2050 climate change policy, the council is now

encouraging farmers, growing different commodities,

to consider relocating to their shire, either now or in

the future.

Based on what he saw and heard at Sheepvention, Mr Young wonders what has Moorabool Shire done with their plan?

“Maybe Moorabool council could learn from them? “The Southern Grampians council is 100 per cent more

pro-active than our shire. I would move down there tomorrow,” Mr Young said.

Fernleigh Park runs approximately 2000 first-cross

ewes and farms 250Ha of broadacre crops that include

wheat, barley, oats, and canola.

In July, Major Road Projects Authority
formed to plan and deliver all major

The State Government has invested
$2.4 million to upgrade the Gisborne
Road/Holts Lane intersection. This
upgrade will help ensure Bacchus
Marsh has the infrastructure to
support the rapidly increasing number
of vehicles travelling through the area.
On Monday 27 August from 9:00pm
until 3:00am, subject to weather
conditions, we’ll lay road surface
on the Melbourne-bound Western
Freeway on-ramp. To safely complete
the works, the on-ramp will be closed
overnight. Signed detours will be in
place via the Avenue of Honour.
Thanks for your patience during this
time. When we complete the upgrade,
you’ll experience safer roads, less
congestion and better travel times.
