We now are working with more than 20 grower organisations, and across our 18-hectare site there has never before been the quality and variety of exhibitors. The third-generation farmer who relies on Primex to reveal the latest innovation to reduce costs and labour will be satisfied. So to will the families who travel to Primex from any of the towns and cities within our wide footprint, seeking a refreshing, enjoyable, fun-filled day out. I know Norco Primex 2019 will deliver.

I am grateful to our growing list of sponsors, headed by Norco and the Richmond Valley Council, and also the increasing number of industry partners who are identifying the value that Primex brings.

FOR those involved in primary industry, we know there are certainties in life other than death and taxes. For every drought, there will eventually be rain. For every good season, unfortunately there will be the not-so-good. Life on the land will always have ups and downs. That’s just part of our DNA. Just like every year, for the past 34 years, people coming to Primex have been told that this next event will be bigger and better, and for most years we have been able to live up to that promise. So, for many, it will come as no surprise that I promise that the 35th Norco Primex, the Great Australian Primary Industries Expo, will be our best. However this boast doesn’t come lightly. It is borne from a great deal of research, planning and pure hard work – something the men and women on the land know too much about. I have been a part of almost every Primex expo since it started in 1985. The event has evolved, but that evolution has been dramatic in recent years. As a primary industries field day event, Primex must service the people involved in those industries. However to survive in the current market it must also have a far wider appeal. As part of our strategic plan we have worked hard in two specific areas: 1. Forming real relationships with producer organisations and finding out from these groups what is needed at Primex for our core customers; 2. Widening the appeal of

ONE of the most exciting innovations of Norco Primex in recent years has been Map Your Show. This addition to the Primex website – www.primex.net.au – is a major plus for both the exhibitor and the visitor. Norco Primex 2019 (May 16-18) will be the third year the Map Your Show technology has been available. Norco Primex director Bruce Wright said there had been continual upgrades to the Map Your Show service to create more opportunities for exhibitors to promote their stands and create an easier-to-understand product for visitors to the show to know exactly who is exhibiting and where. “In basic terms, Map Your Show allows exhibitors to include a great amount of detail about their Primex exhibit on the Primex website,” Mr Wright said. “This then allows visitors to go online well before the gates to Primex open to explore the exhibitors’ list and then each individual exhibitor. “Furthermore the Interactive Floor Plan gives visitors the perfect visual guide to where everything is at Primex. “The next step is for visitors to go to the very user-friendly Norco Primex Planner to plan out their trip

MAYOR’S WELCOME AS A town and region deeply passionate about agriculture, Casino and the Richmond Valley welcomes you to Primex 2019 with open arms. Here in Casino, the beating heart of the Richmond Valley, we couldn’t be prouder to host such a dynamic festival which over the past 30 years has opened up our beautiful little town to Australia and the world. It’s not hard to see how this event has become one of the biggest agribusiness and industry exhibitions in the country. It’s been a tough time on the land of late, with drought and floods making it a story of one step forward, two steps back for some. Yet agriculture is as much a way of life as a business and we are happy to see the best of both on show every year at Primex. Whether you’re here for business,
leisure, or both, you will be treated to captivating live demonstrations, experience great new products, taste scrumptious food and enjoy so much more this landmark event has to offer. We hope you can take time out while at Primex to relax and enjoy yourself, and open your mind to new opportunities for 2019-2020 and beyond. To make that easier, for the first time this year Primex will coincide with the biggest week on the Casino calendar – Beef Week – and we encourage you to stay a little longer to check out all the wonderful things on offer during this time of celebration for our community. We’re well known for our genuine warmth and country hospitality, so please take full advantage.
Richmond Valley Council also supports the growing interest of businesses coming to our area and has a strong economic strategy. So, if you’re a business leader, be sure to drop by council’s Primex site to have a chat about what we can do to help you get started. Cr Robert Mustow Richmond Valley Council Mayor

been continued upgrading of almost every precinct – including carparking, roads, pavilions, cattle yards and technology infrastructure. “This event is reliant on the condition of the site provided,” Norco Primex director Bruce Wright said. “Visitors and exhibitors need the best possible conditions to do what they need to do across the event. That may be merely parking the car and walking around, to bringing numerous animals and large machinery onto the precinct. A major contributor to the upgrade of the Norco Primex site has been local company Holmes Extractive Resources, HXR, who across the years have provided hundreds of tonnes of materials to ensure a better surface for everyone at Primex. “I’m proud to say we have always sourced locals to do the majority of

the contract work at Primex,” Mr Wright said. “David Holmes and the team from HXR not only are experts at what they do, but they are also a pleasure to work with. The quality of the Primex site is a credit to them. “We have had some major tests with weather over the years. Other events would not have been able to go ahead. But because of people like HXR, the gates to Primex have always been open.” HXR have been part of the landscape around the NSW Northern Rivers since 1980, when Kevin Holmes and his wife Beverley began supplying material from the Clovass Quarry, near Casino. Sons David Holmes and Bernard Holmes have grown HXR, which now has over 50 staff servicing a network of projects and locations.

NORCO STANDING UP FOR THE COMMUNITY information updates on the latest technology, with sound advice and customer service always available.” Advice comes in many forms, which is why Norco is supporting Primex, playing a huge role in its success over the years. Primex’s new dates in May are apart of its change in strategy, which has helped it see more than 380 exhibitors through the gates, with more than 4000 trade delegates attending - a 60 per cent increase in two years. A collaboration with more than 30 key partners, including Paddock to Plate, helps showcase the region’s food bowl to the world. What consumers might not know is that Norco is made up of four
divisions – Norco Foods, Norco Rural, Norco Agribusiness and Norco Milk Supply. All come together to help Australian agricultural businesses and farmers keep their profits in Australia.
Norco Rural in Casino works closely with Local Land Services, and also holds regular information days for beef producers. The most recent information day was held in early March at Casino RSM Club, with information shared about drought management. Local beef cattle farmer and event
AS FAR as quintessential Australian brands go, it doesn’t get much more genuine than Norco. A staple of the Australian dairy landscape for more than 120 years, Norco is one of the last 100 per cent farmer-owned dairy cooperatives in Australia, where all profits go back to the nation’s farmers. Part of the challenge with keeping the co-operative sustainable is adapting to technological and environmental standards. “Farming is about business sustainability, working within and complying with industry standards and animal welfare while respecting the environment,” Norco Rural’s Bruce Lyle said. “Customers have come to expect

organiser Mr Lyle said it was important for local farmers to get their drought management in order. “We felt it was imperative that we brought the information day to the community as soon as possible,” he said. “This year in late February being our wet season, which has been pretty much non-existent, leaving the region in dire straits with little or no feed and dangerously low
water supplies.” More than 200 producers in both beef and dairy from across the region came to hear the latest management strategies and received an update on feed options. Discussions revolved around the latest in ag-tech and how to drive efficiency in tough drought conditions. Technologies include solar water pumping, as well as the new 25 per
cent water infrastructure rebates on new dams and bores from the NSW Government. “It was a terrific roll-up with everyone hopeful,” Mr Lyle said. “Fingers (are) crossed for a good downpour of useful rain as soon as possible.” Luckily, those rain dances led to some reprieve, as the region received healthy rain in March.

TRUE GRID GOES TRUE BLUE HAVE you been thinking about improving the parking areas around your property? Are you trying to avoid the harshness and expense of concrete or asphalt? Or are you simply looking for a better maintained surface with less dust than gravel? As the CEO of a major development company, Philip Goodman had the same concerns and went overseas for a solution which was so impressive, he now distributes it throughout Australia. With millions of square metres laid in the US, TRUEGRID is now taking Australia by storm. Research shows TRUEGRID Pro Plus with fill materials such as gravel
or grass creates durable, commercial parking surfaces that allow moisture to soak into the ground naturally. Once filled, TRUEGRID is as durable as concrete or asphalt surfaces, and in many cases, even more durable. Whether you’re looking for a solution to temporary parking, ground stabilisation, temporary roads, horse stables or grassed overflow parking at music venues, TRUEGRID could be the perfect option for you. “If we want to protect our homes, our drinking water and our earth, we

HELP FOR FARMERS WE LIVE in one of the most prime agricultural locations in Australia. My priority is to ensure that farmers, producers and customers all get a fair deal in the agriculture industry. Norco received a $15 million grant to help it expand its ice cream manufacturing, ensuring the 830 jobs and the sustainability of the co-operativeâ€™s 200 farm members. Harwood Sugar Mill obtained a grant of $4.1 million from the Government so their jobs were ensured not only for those working directly there, but also the businesses associated with them. With a grant of $2.5 million, the medicinal cannabis facility will be up and running once all approvals are obtained. Casino Meatworks received a government grant of $1.5 million for equipment to increase its work
capacity and create more jobs. I also welcome an end to the $1 a litre milk. It is time that farmers receive a fair reward for their efforts. I will continue to lobby my colleagues to support my call for a Royal Commission into the alleged market abuse by large supermarkets. During the drought, farming families have had access to $28,000 a year in assistance following a boost of up to $12,000 pa to the Farming Household Allowance. This brings the total support provided by the Government to households and communities in drought to $6.3 billion. I will also stand up for our farmers.

● Provide a venue hosting the leading suppliers to the livestock industries with an education and innovation base of performance feedback, production, Paddock to Plate presentations to the culinary and consumer markets. Norco Primex director Bruce Wright said the Australian livestock industry continued to face challenges domestically and internationally. “The Livestock Essentials Congress is designed to profile and celebrate red meat production and other livestock related industries at Primex alongside 400 trade exhibitors and a range of industry specific events, social, networking, educational and innovation-based opportunities,” Mr Wright said.

Dove-tailing into the congress is the Primex MSA Performance Feedback Trials for commercial beef producers. The trials, held at the B-Feeders feedlot at Warwick from February to April, were compliant with Woolworths’ MSA grain-fed program, and provided producers the opportunity to benchmark the performance of their animals. Results and winners from the trial will he announced at the Red Meat and Industry Awards Dinner at Primex on Friday, May 17 (tickets available at www.primex.net.au). Mr Wright said the Norco Primex program from May 16 to 18 included a wide variety of livestock and beef industry-specific events across the site, from culinary delights at the Paddock to Plate Pavilion, to the traditional cattle displays, sales and judging, to events such as the Australian Teams Working Dog Trials.

PAWESOME DOG TRIALS AT PRIMEX HOME to one of the biggest cattle dog trial events in Australia, Primex is primed and ready for 2019, with a $2500 prize pool up for grabs. The Australian Teams Working Stock Dog Trials features competitors throughout New South Wales and Queensland and provides an exciting spectacle for those attending Primex. “The working dog is a quintessential part of the Australian regional landscape,” Norco Primex director Bruce Wright said. “While technology has caused so many things to be shelved that once played a major role for people on the land, the working dog remains as essential as ever.” The main objective of working stock dog trials is to provide a competitive way to train and foster herding dogs by providing a course
that simulates a mini paddock. This requires a certain relationship between owner and working dog, involving skills, communication and teamwork to herd three head of cattle, which need to be guided around and through a special course. The event’s inaugural year was in 2018 and trainer Dick Chapman and his dogs Bob and Bell took out the top prize and will be back to defend their title among a growing contingent of competitors throughout eastern Australia. “Last year’s working stock dogs were a very popular feature of Primex and we are expecting an even bigger turnout for the 2019 event,” Mr Wright said. “They are a part of the program on all three days of Primex and have a wide appeal to both people from the

You can thank Robert Johnston for adding a bit of extra flavour to Primex by including stock dog trials throughout the three day exhibition. “Bruce (Wright) asked me last year to run something totally different at Primex, different to any of the other trials we go to,” he said. “That’s when I came up with the idea of a teams event with two dogs the only real stipulation with the two dogs was that only one dog could be an ‘open company’ dog... the others must be maiden dogs, meaning

learners, or novice dogs. “(This) makes it fair for everybody... not a lot of people have got a team of open dogs and to keep some blokes from winning it automatically we decided to make it so that you can have only one open dog.” Touted as the ‘dog whisperer’ in the community, Mr Johnston has numerous working dog mustering titles under his belt and operates his own training facility called Shady Acres, in Tatham outside Casino. His training facility is free to use for budding working dog owners, while Mr Johnston also breeds working dogs both out of love and as a source of income. He started taking the trials more seriously in about 2008. “I’ve been a drover and musterer all my life and I was asked why I
didn’t do cattle dog trialling, so I started off doing shows in Casino and Lismore and it gradually became a bug.” Mr Johnston was instrumental in establishing a good working environment for stock dogs and their owners at this year’s Primex. “Anyone that comes from a long way to camp... this year we’ve been given permission to use the Casino showgrounds,” he said. “The people can come with their confidence and bring their caravans. “If they want to stop for the whole three days they can stop at the showgrounds, pay a minimal fee and then they’re handy.” You can see Robert Johnston and other working dog trainers in action at the trials across the whole three days at Primex.

2019 NORCO PRIMEX PROGRAM
LIFE IS ‘PEACHY’ FOR LOCAL FARMER ALMOST every day John de Kleuver looks across his seven hectare “slice of heaven” and counts his blessings. After four years atop a plateau on the Hogarth Range, about 30km from Casino, northern NSW, John is still getting used to the quiet. “The country is not only beautiful to look at, but the soil is so rich and fertile, and the people ... we have made friends for life here,” he said. For 25 years he was involved in golf clubs and golf retail in Indonesia. Life then was hustle, bustle and hectic, mainly in the busy cities of Jakarta and Surabaya.

Southview Orchard was a working farm when the couple took the reins. Drought and a steep learning curve have dented their bank balance, but not their enthusiasm. They grow a variety of fruit, including peaches, nectarines, figs and loquats. They also run cattle and pigs. “It is still more of a hobby farm, but we are aiming to turn that around in the next couple of years. “Currently we have about two hectares of peaches under netting.” This year John will promote Southview Orchard as part of the Paddock to Plate Pavilion at the Primex Primary Industry Expo. “We actually stage a peach festival at our orchard each October so Bruce (Primex owner Bruce Wright) asked us to help organise the Paddock to Plate component at

The breakfast and dinner functions will both to be held at the Primex venue on Friday, May 17. “The social and networking aspects of Primex are a key part of this expo,” said Norco Primex owner Bruce Wright. “However these two events are much more than that. The speakers we have been able to attract for the breakfast and dinner are not only inspirational, but will deliver real answers to people involved in all areas of primary industries.” First up is the Advancing Women in Business and Agriculture, “Up with the Sparrows Breakfast”, which starts at 6.30am at the Primex Hospitality
Pavilion. “You will be inspired by three women in the Australian agricultural industry who all have that grassroots, ‘back to basics, get it done’ attitude,” Mr Wright said. “You will hear from Belinda Murphy, Mayor of the McKinlay Shire, which has recently been ravaged by drought and flooding rains. “Also speaking will be Heidi Smith, who manages all the human resources for one of Australia’s largest beef cattle property holdings, MDH, as well as managing a cattle station with her husband Clint in the north. “The third speaker at the breakfast will be Jane Newsome, who manages a cattle and grain property as well as an additional business in Glenn Innes.” Seven Network journalist Kim

2019 NORCO PRIMEX PROGRAM
CWA HAS THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AT HEART THERE is no secret in the fact Norco Primex brings the community together. “Since the first Primex in 1985 this event has had a charitable arm and a strong affiliation with local community groups,” Norco Primex owner Bruce Wright said. The Far North Coast Country Women’s Association is one of those community groups. Comprising of 20 branches, the CWA is a proud part of Primex, with funds raised at their site going towards education grants. “The Far North Coast branch of the Country Women’s Association has been with Primex since that first event,” Mr Wright said. “Nothing epitomises the true
values of charity more than the CWA. “The CWA hospitality area at Primex is famous for its home-style meals and relaxed atmosphere. “Even better, money raised from this goes toward $500 education grants for Northern Rivers school students transitioning from primary to secondary and secondary to tertiary studies. “The students are nominated by their schools before being accepted by the committee.” Along with the CWA, other charities to benefit from Norco Primex 2019 included: The Black Dog Institute, Northern NSW Local Health District’s Richmond Breast Care Nurses, Australian Prostate Cancer and Westpac Life Saver Rescue

Helicopter. “We see the partnership with the CWA and many other organisations we have affiliation with throughout the community as a key ingredient in our community engagement program,” Mr Wright explained. “It is part of our strategic plan to build on the 35 years that Primex has been operating, to ensure we continue to support the community that supports us.”

TWO FARMERS AND A FIELD pasture and cropping programs, stock feed, animal health requirements ... we use their agronomy and field advisors (Trent Stainlay, Bruce Lyle and trainee Sam Carlton) who are very good,” Mr Pfeffer said. “Bruce Lyle has been really good for us, has been at our beck and call we probably wouldn’t survive without him. “We’re probably in communication at least twice per week, planning our pasture improvements, more recently regarding the winter feeds we are going to plant and planning ahead for animal health treatments... Bruce keeps us up to date with all the latest products that are out there, their best use and the expected outcomes.” Bruce Lyle is a cattle farmer himself, which goes a long way in
TWO blokes having a yarn. That’s the best way to describe the working relationship between Norco’s Bruce Lyle and Mogul Brahman’s beef cattle and stud farm manager Glen Pfeffer of Casino. Norco Rural has provided support to Mogul for more than 30 years, keeping Glen Pfeffer abreast of the latest technology and products available to prosper in his Stud and Commercial Brahman cattle enterprise. The Norco Rural footprint provides a network, which resembles more like a cobbled crew of beef and dairy farmers across the state and beyond. Mr Pfeffer has been in charge at Casino’s Mogul Brahman site for 35 years, managing more than 2000 acres and about 800 head of cattle at any one time. “We use them (Norco) for our
what he brings to Norco and its cooperative. Practical experience with solution based farm and livestock management is always in the front of his mind. “Not living too far from here (Casino), having the local knowledge we are able to help Mogul along with many other producers,” he said. “Having a bit of skin in the game targets my advice and what I’ve trialled, what other farmers have trialled, and what works in the real world. “Our relationship is based around an annual production calendar we’re not just thinking of a week or a month ahead, but more like the whole season ahead. “It’s a pleasure dealing with the Mogul team and I get a real kick out of my customers having success with

DROUGHT MITIGATION A HOT TOPIC AT PRIMEX
A large part of Mr Lyle’s job is staying on top of the latest in ag-tech, animal health products and nutritional information and one big date in the calendar is Primex. Themes surrounding drought mitigation will be a hot topic at this year’s exhibition, and luckily with Norco in support, Mogul has fared better than most in the drought over

the last year. The green grass and healthy cattle you see on Mogul paddocks are no coincidence - it comes down to good management, and just a little bit of luck, but most importantly being ready to act when there is rain. “We were fortunate enough last year; we fertilised ... our paddock out the front - we made 640 round bales of hay and another 400 silage rolls of Cowpeas and Millet,” Mr Pfeffer said.
“That has got us through; we’ve used all our silage and we are down to about 350 bales of hay. “Bruce has been able to supply us with the latest mineral supplements that the cattle are going to need, and we’ve been feeding our cows and calves and young bulls on ‘TrueGraze’ (liquid feed)... our cattle are in pretty good condition.” Primex is the rare opportunity to get a lot of industry heads in one room together. “We see Primex as a place where we see what new products are out there,” Mr Pfeffer said. Norco helps tie the Primex weekend together, where the cooperative will have a huge presence as naming-rights sponsor. “Our site will be a large site where we bring representatives of companies and products,” Mr Lyle said. “It’s pretty much a one stop shop for information, and a great opportunity to put a face to the name of people we deal with.”

Flex youur f It’s a great time to set fresh money goals, but you also need discipline to reach them, writes Anthony Keane A FLEXIBLE approach to money and goal setting will help Australians improve their personal finances this year. Volatility in shares and property, tax law changes and a federal election in 2019 mean people will need to focus on their own actions rather than reaching specific wealth targets. It’s pointless declaring you will increase your wealth by a certain figure because markets might plunge and wipe out your gains. However, clear written goals about how much money you will deposit regularly can be acted upon, measured and changed when needed. Financial strategist Theo Marinis said people who did not set money goals risked financial failure because Australians tended to “kick the
can down the road” and delay their money decisions. “The secret is to set yourself realistic targets, small targets,” he said. This could be depositing $50 a week into super, a separate bank account or a home loan to prevent every spare dollar from being spent on lifestyle. “Put it on autopilot and you don’t think about it,” Mr Marinis said. “We can still get by with a little extra taken out of our pay packets.” He said people who found themselves ahead of target after three months could consider lifting their target. “But don’t

WE SPOKE with naturopath and nutritionist Jess Blair about what best before and use-by dates really mean, and how to keep the food in your fridge fresh.
What is the difference between best before and use by?
“The use-by date refers to when it’s safe to eat or consume up until,” Blair says. “The best before date is more about the taste and quality of the food rather than a safety issue.”
What are the risks of eating out of date food?
“There are many risks depending on what food it is. If you are eating anything like meat, milk or fish that are past their useby date you can contract food poisoning,” Blair says.
Can I freeze food like raw meat and defrost it to eat after its use-by date? How long will it last in the freezer?

Safe and smart — at least in range-topping guise — this Honda has a lot going for it in terms of family duties. Honda has a solid five-year warranty, but service intervals are 12 months or 10,000km, which is less than the average person drives each year. Costs are capped at $295 for each visit. Driving Australia’s annual average distance will involve four trips amounting to $1180.

MARKET TRENDS 2018
The 1.5-litre turbo (140kW/240Nm) is an enthusiastic performer held back by a continuously variable transmission that desperately wants to save the world by minimising fuel use. That can come at the expense of acceleration, especially off the line. Fuel use is rated at 7.4L/100km and the CR-V needs only regular unleaded.

The VTi-LX is the only CR-V with active safety software, including autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control. That’s good without coming close to the technology in the Forester. ANCAP tested it last year and it scored an impressive 35.76/37.

A seven-inch screen is smaller and less easy to use than rivals but enables smartphone mirroring. There’s plenty of stowage space and room in the first two rows of seats — the third row is reserved for children. Boot space with all seats in use is 150L, expanding to 472L with the third row folded.
The balancing act between comfort and cornering is one of the CR-V’s strengths. It ultimately favours comfort, meaning it irons out everything from low-speed humps to highway corrugations without wallowing when rolling through a turn. The steering is lifeless but direct and acceleration is OK without rivalling the benchmark Volkswagen Tiguan.

LOCAL INVENTION TAKES THE WORLD BY SWARM THE Flow Hive has revolutionised the beekeeping industry and the way honey can be harvested. “With the turn of a handle, beautiful, fresh honey flows straight from your hive into your jar and needs no further processing”, explained Cedar Anderson, co-inventor with his father, Stuart. The award-winning invention from the Northern Rivers has contributed to an international boom in amateur beekeeping. People are attracted to keeping bees without the heavy lifting involved in harvesting hives or the expense of extraction equipment. The great Australian Primary Industries Expo, Norco Primex Field Days, awarded Flow the Inaugural
Primex Innovation Scholarship, adding to its string of awards. “We are delighted with this recognition from the primary industries sector, and with more hobby farmers and small honey producers choosing Flow Hives, it’s fantastic timing,” Mr Anderson said. The Primex scholarship will support Flow to compete in the International Innovation category at the 2019 New Zealand National Fieldays event. “People love new Australian inventions, and many also want to be able to produce their own food,” Mr Anderson said. “People are also becoming much more aware of the value of bees and want to help these pollinators

110 YEARS OF INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE SARWOOD Timbers are now your locally owned and operated distributors of Ranbuild sheds. Teaming up with Ranbuild “just made sense” for Sarwood manager David White, who said it was great having two strong brands together. “We’re owned by locals and are constantly increasing our product range,” Mr White said. “When you choose a Ranbuild shed from Sarwood Timbers, you will deal with an ethical specialist supplier with the best building and service, backed by our many years of experience in the industry.” 2019 is a year of celebration for both Sarwood and Ranbuild, celebrating their 40th and 70th year anniversaries respectively. Combining the best materials, design and service to ensure all customers are truly satisfied has
always been a commitment for Sarwood Timbers, with the family business having grown by over 80 per cent in the past four years. “When purchasing a Ranbuild steel-framed building from Sarwood Timbers, you are investing into a standard of quality like no other,” Mr White said. “From garden sheds, workshops, sheds, garages, rural sheds, carports, equine and commercial buildings, Ranbuild use 100 per cent quality Australian BlueScope steel, with their sheds coming complete with fully galvanised steel work, Colorbond roof and wall sheeting. “All flashings, gutters, downpipes, purlins, girts, fasteners, bolts and fittings are also included. “We can arrange installation for you or DIY, with our comprehensive and easy-to-understand installation
manuals and plans. Sarwood can also do the concrete slab and erect the shed or carport as well.” Find Sarwood Timbers at site Q7 during the 2019 Norco Primex.
Buying local is key to keeping businesses like Sarwood operating.
