As the extent of the devastating 'Once-in-a-century flooding' continues to be determined, the AgForce-led Emergency Taskforce continues its vital efforts to save thousands of head of isolated livestock in North Queensland.
AgForce has swiftly developed an Emergency Fodder Drop Map, to allow producers who are in urgent need of fodder to record what resources are required to sustain their animals and where it should be delivered.
The interactive Map allows producers to drop a pin on a virtual map, and AgForce is collecting this information to then pass on to Emergency Services and the Australian Defence Force in a coordinated effort to assist producers.
AgForce has thanked the Government, in particular Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud, and the ADF for quickly and wholeheartedly stepping up to assist cattle producers, most of whom had been suffering from one of the longest droughts on record less than a week ago.
The Map is now available online here: http://bit.ly/AgForceFodderMap.
Producers in need can also call AgForce on their Emergency Hotline number 1800 648 974 for assistance.
The Emergency Hotline also allows people who would like to donate or sell fodder or other services, such as transport logistics, to ring through to a dedicated team.
