New support for Bowmans ownership of Australia’s largest inland container terminal business, Patrick PortLink (SA) Pty Ltd, has been restructured and rebranded Bowmans Intermodal, with Australia Milling Group (AMG) and Toll Holdings Limited joining founding investors Balco, Australia’s leading hay processor and exporter. The intermodal rail business, located at Bowmans, west of Balaklava, was formed in 2003. Balco’s managing director,

Malcolm May, said the new name reflected the change of ownership. The restructuring was simply another step in the evolution of the business, one which will be integral to future exports from South Australia. “We believe this business has an extremely bright future particularly as containerised exports increase through value-added businesses in our region,” said Mr. May. “While the business is now operating near full capacity, the restructure will also allow us to fund additional infrastructure. Eventually we may see trains

from Melbourne or Perth pulling directly into the private siding at Bowmans.” AMG is owned by Canadian based Alliance Grain Traders, whose president and chief executive officer Mr Murad Al-Katib is pleased with the outcome. “We have invested heavily in a pulses storage and handling facility at Bowmans and the new ownership structure will shore up our logistics supply chain from both a reliability and cost perspective,” said Mr. Al Katib. n Continued Page 17

Grain: No quick fix Committee finds national reform must lead industry deregulation Les Pearson reports:

Family fun at the show

NATIONAL reform of the grain industry is needed before it can be effectively deregulated, according to a Select Committee report into the grain handling industry. The committee handed down its final report last week, declaring the Australian grains industry was not in a position to receive any great benefit from the next step towards deregulation, currently before the Federal government. Committee chair and independent Member for Frome, Geoff Brock, said the whole industry needed reform before it should be deregulated. “The reforms to date only impose a deregulated market on top of an industry Geoff Brock that has practices and infrastructure that were developed under a heavily regulated regime which has not adjusted to the changed circumstances,” he said. n Continued Page 16

HARVEST - IT’S NO TIME FOR DOWN TIME Harvest is a vital time of the year, making your Massey Ferguson arguably your most important piece of machinery. It therefore makes sense to maintain your machine using genuine Massey Ferguson parts. Replacing original with original ensures you know the quality and reliability of the new part, as it is exactly the same as the one coming out, direct from the Massey Ferguson factory.

was pleased with the attendance and the weather held up reasonably well. “I was satisfied, I thought it was pretty good,” she said. “It did die down just before the Crows started. “We still had the northerly wind, as always on Balaklava Show day,” she said. Mrs Grigg said the crowd figure was probably affected by the show being held barely a week after the Adelaide Show, which also had an impact on the amount of rides and sideshows being unavailable on the day. She explained the rides and sideshows all need Occupational Health, Safety and Welfare (OHSW) clearances before they can attend any function and the time gap between the Adelaide and Balaklava shows was too small. Sunday’s show jumping event was also cancelled, after receiving 50 entries. While this figure was similar to last year, it did not cover the increased prize money pool, making the event unviable. Former show com-

mittee secretary and long term committee servant, the late Nollene Grigg, was awarded posthumous life membership of the Balaklava Show Society Committee, which was presented to her three daughters by president, Phillip Shepherd. “It was lovely but she would have been up there saying ‘I didn’t want any of that’,” Natasha laughed, referring to her mother’s widely known modesty. Nollene also had a perpetual memorial shield named after her this year, which was won by Edwina Harrison, who rode horse, Willowcroft Regal Delight, in the Supreme Ridden Exhibit. The award will be alternated between different sections of the show each year. Tash said anyone with ideas on how the show could be improved was more than welcome to join the show society committee or attend the show’s AGM on March 20. She anticipates next year’s show will probably held on AFL grand final day next year, as has been the case previously.

The other day, a group of us were talking and solving the world’s problems, (what a surprise!), and one lady said how things had changed in small towns, especially in the last few years. One commented they could often walk down the street nowadays and not know anyone. That can be true although I haven’t really found it that way myself. Maybe, as people get older and are not as involved in as many sporting/school/community groups, they meet fewer “new” people. Or maybe some of the “new” people don’t get involved in any community things themselves, so no locals really know who they are. I find my shopping excursions a social outing – as many locals will attest! Many a conversation, often lengthy, has been held down aisle one, two ... actually every aisle. Or on the footpath, where other shoppers have been in and out of shops, only to find me standing in the same spot, still listening intently to whoever it is talking to me (and not necessarily the same person who was there when they went in.) Don’t laugh. You know it’s true. I’ve seen it happen to others too. Recently, I was sitting in the car, windows down and the sun shining in, writing my shopping list out, when a friend nearly jumped through

Pets beware of snakes

With the arrival of spring, snakes are posing a greater threat to pets as the warmer weather and dryer conditions put an end to their winter hibernation. Australia’s peak veterinary body, the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) is urging pet owners to take precautions to prevent deadly encounters with snakes when venturing outside with their furry friends. Dr David Neck, President of AVA’s small animal special interest group said that snakes tend to be their most active towards the end of the day. “Snake bites tend to occur in the late afternoon or early evening. Snakes also tend to be attracted to rodents and rubbish to hide under. Dr Neck said it is important for pet owners to be aware of the signs of a snake bite as owners may not actually see their dog or cat being bitten. “Symptoms can vary with different snakes but sudden onset of seizures, vomiting, weakness in the limbs and inability to move may be observed. Soon after the symptoms occur, the animal may collapse with severely laboured breathing,” Dr Neck said. Although snake bites can be deadly, rapid treatment with the appropriate anti-venom can be a very effective treatment if done quickly.

The South Australian Art Gallery recently provided copies of the books to all members of the Regional Galleries Association of South Australia. The five books, present works and information on Hans Heysen, Clifford Possum and Patricia Piccinini, along with collections by European landscape artists, entitled “Making Nature”, and examples of 21st century

Australian craft, in “Bravura”. Balaklava Courthouse Gallery curator, Jo May, believes the books will get far more use at the library, with school students and the general public having easy access to them. “For people who visit art galleries or just have an interest in art, they are very interesting reading,” Mrs May said. Library manager, Keira James, said the donation was extremely generous. “Our budget simply wouldn’t stretch to buy individual books of this quality,” she said.

his week I felt frustrated enough with some trouble makers in our community I thought I should write about them. I felt those who steal from others, damage property, threaten others with physical violence and people who behave like the world owes them something should be exposed. They should be asked to do better, make amends and choose a better path. Rather than focusing on their behaviour, I will suggest some role models for them; and there are plenty of people doing great things in every town. There are teams of parents and volunteers working like well-oiled machines behind every sporting club, school and church in catering, volunteering, training and fundraising and on committees. We have people who have to put aside their own grief to orchestrate community events, and those who support such events by taking a whole week off work to cook up show winning entries. There are people in shop fronts who smile regardless of how bad their day is going, giving you the feeling nothing is too hard, and teachers in schools who keep their enthusiasm no matter how much disrespect might be thrown their way. What about those who give up sleep and paid work days to fight fires, attend car accidents, and retrieve, help or save the sick and injured? We have police officers who are constantly berated for doing the job they were trained to do, yet they still vow to keep us safe. There are so many people giving just that little bit extra back to the community to make it a better place for all. Not one acts as if the world owes them, despite their own personal journeys. There are so many others I would love to write about. They all deserve our respect and gratitude. So today I say ‘thank you’ – and one day, I hope those in trouble can give a little bit back too.

NEWS v District

We host a ‘walk for the sun’

ON the road from Lochiel on Monday, facing 20km to South Hummocks, with Kathy Nicholls (second right, striped top) joining in while on her morning walk. RIGHT: The campers at Lochiel, near the Uniting church. LOCHIEL hosted 120 sore feet over the weekend as the Walk for Solar passed through the town. The walk was organised by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC), with about 60 people making the 300km trek from Port Augusta to Adelaide. Their message is relatively simple, calling for the coal power station at Port Augusta to be replaced with a solar and wind alternative, instead of the gas power station, as currently planned. Organiser, Michael Poland, said it had been a great, yet challenging experience.

“We saw walking as a really big sacrifice to make, showing how passionate these people are about the issue and their strong show of support,” he said. “A bit of a groundswell is beginning, so the goal is to keep raising awareness until it gets on the Federal government’s agenda.” Participants have travelled across the nation to be a part of the walk, while several people have joined the walk since it began.

The walk will culminate in a rally in Adelaide on Sunday. Armagh and Crystal Brook resident, David Clarke, said the stop at Lochiel was a welltimed break. “It had a nice camping area and there were plenty of meals provided from the local store and a few went into the pub for dinner too,” Mr Clarke said. “The crowd of 60 may have stretched the

town’s resources a bit but they did very well. “Everyone we came across in the town was kind and very supportive.” The group also walked to another local attraction, the Snowtown wind farm, getting an idea of what could come to Port Augusta. Lochiel local, John Nicholls, said the group were great temporary residents. “I found them to be good young people,” he said. “As a group, they were really positive.”

Hamley hospital plans growth HAMLEY Bridge Memorial Hospital has included an additional 10 aged care beds and a 10-bed dementia unit as goals to achieve in its five-year strategic plan review. The hospital is a private, not for profit community hospital, which provides quality health services for acute and residential care clients. The expansion is part of a general upgrade of the hospital’s facilities, which would include an upgrade to the older hospital area, new reception area, new kitchen to cater for the additional clientele and under croft parking and storage under the hostel additions. The hospital currently has 33 aged care beds, five acute care beds, with one of those a palliative care unit. The preliminary layout can be seen on the plan, which is on display in the window of the Hamley Bridge General Store, as well as the hospital. Hamley Bridge Memorial Hospital chief

executive officer, David Adcock, said any community feedback about the future direction of the hospital was extremely valuable. “It is a starting point for this review and we are seeking comments from the local community,” he said. “The community can let us know their opinions about what services they would like to see. There’s quite a bit happening within the community as far as future development, so we’re looking at that side of it. “We need to incorporate the extensions of aged care and the hospital with the community need and development.” This strategic plan will form the foundation of planning, funding and implementation of health services to the wider community. Mr Adcock said in the development of the plan, emphasis has been placed on defining achievable actions that can be undertaken over a short to long term timeframe. While the official closing date for feed-

back has passed, he also encouraged anyone with thoughts or comments regarding the hospital’s future direction to contribute. “From there, we would need to do another strategic plan as to how we’re going to do it, timeframes, stages and so on,” Mr Adcock said. “It all needs to be in place when funding rounds come through from the Federal government, because you only get a small timeframe to apply.” Any comments should be addressed to the executive officer or chairperson at the hospital, or contact David at the hospital on 8528 2276. • MEANTIME, Mr Adcock has taken on a part time CEO role at the Mallala hospital, following the resignation of former director, Kathleen Smith, about two months ago. He manages his time with three days a week at Hamley Bridge hospital and 1.5 days per week at Mallala.

Piano recovered

NANTAWARRA • PORT Wakefield police recovered a piano and other accessories stolen from the Nantawarra Church last week. The church was broken into on Thursday night, with offender/s breaking a window and door then entering through it. Following up on information received from the public regarding a separate incident, police attended a premises at Port Parham on Monday and noticed a piano similar to the one reported stolen late last week. Police identified the piano as the one stolen from the church by referring to the serial numbers on the instrument. Enquiries continue regarding the suspects. The piano was returned to the church Tuesday afternoon. VIRGINIA • POLICE are investigating an aggravated robbery at a Post Office in Virginia on Wednesday afternoon. At about 3.45pm, a man armed with a knife, entered the Old Port Wakefield Road Post Office and threatened staff, demanding money. The man fled with an amount of cash and was last seen fleeing in a white sedan. No one was physically injured.The suspect is described as a man, wearing black overalls, a fluro vest and a stocking over his face. BLYTH • A 39-year-old woman from Blyth was reported for assault, which occurred on September 21. It is alleged she assaulted a person unknown to her. She will appear in the Clare Magistrates Court at a later date. LEWISTON • FOUR pinball machines were stolen from a shed on Dawkins Road, Lewiston, on September 19. Offender/s gained entry to the shed by snapping a lock on a sliding door. WINDSOR • BETWEEN September 19 and 20, entry was gained to a house through a side window on Port Wakefield Road, Windsor. A welder, power tools and DVDs were stolen. TWO WELLS • BETWEEN September 16 and 22, two dirt bikes, a go-kart and a lawnmower were stolen from shed on Frost Road, Two Wells.

A BARNACLE covered “burial ground” will be greeting thousands of travellers heading to the coast through Port Wakefield this weekend, with local boat owners creating a mock “cemetery” for their vessels. The stunt is being arranged by the Marine Park 14 Action Group (MPAG) to illustrate how worthless the community’s boats would become if proposed State government sanctuary zones are applied as currently planned. The cemetery, complete with large fake tombstones brandishing grim messages, will be assembled at the site of the proposed future town centre, where the Wakefield Waters development is to be located. Prospective protesters can join the cemetery stunt, starting at 9am on Saturday, with access to the site via East street, with a sausage sizzle to be held during the day. The cemetery will be left on site throughout the long weekend. MPAG chair, Bart Butson, said the aim of the stunt was to raise awareness of the plight

Les Pearson reports:

the community faced, with many locals fearing the sanctuary zone at the top of the Gulf St Vincent would drastically impact the town of Port Wakefield and surrounding district. “If anyone wants to join in our protest, who thinks their boat will no longer be useful as a result of the zones, they are more than welcome,” Mr Butson said. It has been a busy few months for the MPAG, which Mr Butson believes has managed to capture the attention of the relevant State government authorities. “I believe we are being listened to by the government now and that’s what this whole consultation phase is about,” he said. “We have their attention. Now we need to make sure they see how serious this situation is for our community. With this stunt, we’re looking to spread that message to a larger audience.” Information about the MPAG’s alternative

sanctuary zone proposal will also be placed in service stations in Port Wakefield, as well as the protest site. Mr Butson hoped the cemetery would also attract some television coverage from media covering the traffic situation from the sky. • MEANTIME, Thousands of South Australian businesses may be eligible for compensation as a result of proposed marine park impacts according to legal advice received by the South Australian Marine Parks Management Alliance. Alliance chairman, Dr Gary Morgan, said advice from legal firm, Slater and Gordon, indicated those eligible to apply for compensation as a result of marine park impacts could be far more wide ranging than just affected commercial fishers. “Over the coming weeks we will be calling for business owners who will be affected by the marine parks proposal to register their details with the Alliance.” For details, go to www.soundsfishy.org.au

Farmers take Hart in research After 30 years, our popular field day has its moment in the sun

A

Pinery farmers Derek and Clinton Tiller check out some of the trials at last week’s 30th annual Hart Field Day.

Report and pictures: GABRIELLE HALL “I think it’s great ... it’s more than great! This field day has helped so many farmers and people in agribusiness.” Dr Allan Mayfield has also been involved in the field day almost since its inception and gave an engaging lunch time speech to the crowd. GRDC Southern Panel chairman, David Shannon, presented SARDI senior research scientist, Rob Wheeler, with the Seed Of Light award in recognition of his contribution to research and extension of crop variety information to growers across the state. New technologies including the Harrington Seed Destructor (HSD) were on display, with Mid North growers given the oppor-

tunity to sign up to trial the HSD this harvest. The rolling program also featured information on snail and weed control, varieties, agronomy and harvest management across a broad range of crops. The perfect weather conditions for the field day could have only been topped by the forecast of rain on the horizon for some growers who are now looking for good, soaking rains in the next few weeks to bring home the harvest. “There’s still good yield potential in crops around this area but we’re still very reliant on some critical rains from now on in,” Matt says. “The yield prophet model at Hart is saying we’ve got 30 millimetres of plant-available water – that will last about a week so we’re certainly looking for those rains now.”

Catching up at the Hart Field Day are Richard Gregory, Hamley Bridge; Dylan Fabry, Pinery; and Brad Dennis, Baroota.

bout 600 farmers and industry personnel gathered for the 30th annual Hart Field Day last Tuesday (September 18) to hear more than 30 speakers and researchers provide updates on the latest agronomy trials, varieties and technologies. Visitors travelled from most cropping areas of the state, as well as some from as far as Western Australia, Victoria and even India and Japan and were greeted with a picture perfect outlook at the Hart site. Hart Field-Site Group chairman, Matt Dare, said the group was thrilled with the day’s success. “We had another great roll up and it’s a very fitting way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Hart,” he says. “The crowd is testament to what we’re doing here. The site looks magnificent and we’ve really had a top quality program and speakers. “Going forward we’re looking to continue the tradition and maintain the quality of research happening at the Hart Field-Site.” Founding member of the field day, Kevin Jaeschke OAM, whose vision some 30 years ago helped cement the Hart Field Day’s position as one of the leading agronomy field days in Australia, was extremely proud of what he saw as he walked around the field day this year. “Thirty years is a long time for this group to be functioning and I’m so pleased with the way this younger group continue what we began,” he says. “We’ve had highs and lows, but the group now owns this land and it’s all paid for.

Growers receive another bonus

Grower members of the Australian Grain Growers Co-operative (AGG Co-op) are set to receive their second consecutive rebate following a resolution at Friday’s annual general meeting (AGM). ‘Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the board and management team, plus the ongoing support from growers our business is continuing to expand and deliver back to growers’ said AGG Co-op CEO, Steve Mellington. The resolution to pay a rebate of $1.00 for each tonne delivered by members to AGG Coop during the 2011/12 season was overwhelmingly supported at AGG Co-op’s second AGM, held in Adelaide last Friday, September 21. ‘This rebate demonstrates the value associated with AGG Co-op membership. It also proves again, that we will net return profits back to grower members’ said Mr Mellington.

Dean Spencer, Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and AGG Co-op Board Member said it was particularly pleasing AGG Co-op had been able to establish new systems and grow its business while still returning a profit to members without incurring debt. The AGM was well supported by grower members across South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales who actively participated in positive discussions about the growth and development of the Co-operative. Those who could not attend in person participated via AGG Co-op’s new webinar service, which aims to make involvement in the Co-op even easier and cost effective. “Since AGG Co-op is built by growers for growers, it is important members actively contribute and have their say in how we operate,” explained Mr Mellington.

“We have worked hard to deliver grain marketing services to more than 1000 growers with around 350,000 tonnes of grain traded in 2011/12. ‘Working with growers we have developed new processes which have made our transparent systems even easier and more efficient. We have also rebranded and launched our new grain marketing product range offering growers even more options to consider for the 2012 / 13 season. The AGM also featured a presentation from chair, Stuart Murdoch, who discussed business position, vision and achievements of the Co-op. “The past year has seen AGG Co-op expand considerably,” Mr Murdoch said. “Growth of our business allowed us to reinvest into quality people. This team has helped the co-operative develop new contracts,

products and services – which will only benefit our members.” Mr Murdoch also acknowledged support received from growers. “Growers continue to embrace AGG Coop – they appreciate we are a grower owned and operated business, built by growers for growers. They also understand they are our priority for all decision making.” Growers are invited to become of AGG Coop with membership forms available online at: www.aggcoop.com.au

AGG Three is the ‘risk friendly’ marketing tool The grower driven Australian Grain Growers Co-operative (AGG Co-op) is proud to launch ‘AGG Three’ a new grain marketing product which allows growers to spread pricing risk while capturing fast cash flow. This new product will be available for wheat, barley and canola growers. Complementing the ‘AGG Cash’ and ‘AGG Protect’ products, AGG Three provides growers with exposure to the market immediately post harvest for a three month period from January to March in a simple, structured and cost effective manner. “This time frame typically presents selling opportunities as we exit the normal harvest selling pressure in Australia as well as the volatility that comes from the northern hemisphere crops coming out of winter dormancy’ explained AGG Co-op CEO, Steve Mellington. The product comes as a relief to southern grain growers.

“We find growers like to sell grain into the cash market as part of a balanced approach to grain marketing. They often comment they keep a close eye on the market but AGG Co-op has a new it takes a lot smart phone website of time and the market always seems to go up the following day,” Mr Mellington said. AGG Three offers growers a way to minimise that risk. Distribution will be paid each month over a three month period with payments finalised by April.

Working within a defined sales mandate, specialist product managers will be watching the market each day and looking to strategically price when the time is right. Essentially, AGG Three markets small portions of your grain at short intervals over the three month post harvest period – something that would not be practical or cost effective for an individual grower. “AGG Co-op management and our Board have worked hard to develop a product which really suited the needs and requirements of grain growers in the southern region – we are working to take the stress out of grain marketing,” said Mr Mellington. AGG Co-op Grower director and chair of the Risk Sub Committee, Andrew Barr, said: “As growers we have reviewed other products in the market to ensure AGG Three adds additional value while being cost competitive. “We feel this offers growers the best package for overall risk friendly grain marketing

– its structured selling made easy.” Why choose AGG Three: •Spread pricing risk and capture fast cash flow. •Use specialist product managers to watch the market each day and strategically market your grain while working within a defined sales mandate. •Distribution will be paid each month over a three month period with payments finalised by April. •Spread cash marketing of grain over a period that typically presents selling opportunities as we exit the normal harvest selling pressure in Australia and see volatility as the northern hemisphere crops come out of winter dormancy. •Profits are returned to grower members. •Low cost marketing. Priced at $1.10 per tonne per tonne per month to facilitate, this low cost marketing tool is very accessible to most growers.

Balco also has an extensive database of cropping and machinery hire contractors which can be used to assist farmers if they don’t have access to these resources at that time. Mr Guerin said frost was determined by location and landscape factors as well as the climate.

“Frost injury is most likely to occur in lower lying areas of paddock or valleys with low wind movement, allowing the cold air to settle,” he said. The level of frost damage inflicted can depend on the type of crops sown. “Oats are quite hardy and have a low sensitivity to frost, with barley having a moderate sensitivity. Triticale and wheat have a high sensitivity,” he said. “Early-maturing wheat is also more likely to be injured by frost than late-maturing wheat due to the higher likelihood of cold nights. “Growing oaten hay on frost-prone paddocks minimises the frost risk as it is cut soon after flowering, and does not rely on grain fill as part of the crop value.”

Agfarm, Australian-owned and established in NSW in 1992, opened a South Australian office last year. It has a real commitment to growers by providing products that work for growers in the long term, keeping them in farming for generations to come. Agfarm developed its awardwinning Advantage 2, 5 and 10 products based around the principle of indexed selling to ensure a good average return for their clients. More research is showing that securing a good average price, instead

Mick Phelan Matt Gibbins of chasing the highest price is part of a successful long term strategy for growers. Agfarm has been out and about recently, talking to growers about their options this harvest. Mick Phelan, who works from Agfarm’s Adelaide office, along with Mat Gibbins from Mid-North Ag at Balaklava, organised an event at the Mallala hotel in August and is back

undertaking one-on-one grower visits with Mid North Ag from Monday this week until October 8. Mick is hoping for a productive season. “For the most part of this year, crops through the Mid North region around Balaklava have looked quite good,” Mick said. “Weather has been drier over the last couple of months, with August rainfall well below average. “We are also coming into a period of time where hot northerly winds and frosts pose a big threat to crops reaching their full potential.” Agfarm’s conversations with farmers have shown there are growers who would like to leverage the indexed selling programs available as part of the Advantage products,

while having more say on when their grain is sold. Agfarm developed a new product, Advantage DIY with these growers in mind. Advantage DIY allows growers to deliver grain to Advantage and utilise a cash advance, regular payments or a deferred payment option. They are then able to access Agfarm’s network of more than 80 buyers and through their online grower portal, participants can check prices and decide which month they would like to sell in and how much. Agfarm is the fastest paying company in the industry. Last harvest it averaged 1.8 business days on their cash advances. 4 Contact Agfarm to book a visit on 1300 243 276.

No quick fix for grain industry Owen shines for crop walk

‘Seed of Light’ to Rob One of the most respected figures within the southern grains industry has been recognised for his efforts and achievements in communicating the outcomes of research. Rob Wheeler, from the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), has been named the recipient of the 2012 Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Southern Region Seed of Light Award. This award acknowledges Mr Wheeler’s outstanding commitment and contribution to the Australian grains industry.

Local farmers took time off last Friday to enjoy some sunshine, as they embarked on the Owen Ag Bureau’s annual crop walk. A hearty breakfast at Rooster Park (Owen oval) prepared the group, before departing for the Elders trial site at Balaklava. Sites visited in the morning included Brett Roberts’ ryegrass hay trial, AMG Bowmans, SARDI lentil trial site at Kelvin Tiller’s, then back to Owen for lunch, which was followed by a chaser bin demonstration on the oval. The afternoon consisted of a visit to Andrew Parker’s to view his Scope barley, then on to Clinton Tiller’s for Cobra Wheat and beans, moisture probe and durum, and of course a few quiet refreshments! • Pictured are Owen Ag Bureau president, Ben Marshman, with secretary Richard Gregory and farmers after the chaser bin demonstration. Owen Ag Bureau president, Ben Marshman, was pleased with how the day unfolded. “It was a good turn out, with 45-50 people there,” he said. “Thanks to all the sponsors who made the day a success.”

•From page 1 “We’re not saying deregulation shouldn’t eventuate. “If we’re going to deregulate the grain industry, let’s do it properly and do it all at the same time.” The committee listed several key recommendations in its final report, surrounding grain classification and monopolisation of ports and transport infrastructure. Mr Brock said the grain classification system was widely subjective and there was a view of inconsistency amongst growers towards how grain was classified. “At the moment, grain classifiers are all employed by their respective grain handling company,” he said. “They’re trained, but there is no accreditation, so what we are suggesting is there should be an independent body to assess and accredit the classifiers.” Port access is also limited, with Viterra currently owning the export infrastructure at seven ports, meaning independent grain marketers must pay Viterra to get their product to overseas markets. This virtual monopoly of the facilities was highlighted in a presentation to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) by the select committee before it approved the sale of Viterra to Glencore. Mr Brock said the committee suggested one of the ports not be part of the sale, instead being put on the market for a separate potential purchaser. Alas, it fell on deaf ears. “I believe the ACCC did not look at

the whole potential growth factor of the industry and its future and act specifically to give the producers the best deal available,” Mr Brock said. “I am very disappointed it did not at least consider it or at least come back to us with any offer of discussion. “I think the ACCC lacked bite in this instance. The sale hasn’t gone through at this stage. “From a South Australian point of view, the State government could still talk to Viterra or Glencore and say they strongly recommend one of the ports be divested.” Viterra has also reportedly contracted all of Genesee Wyoming’s available rail wagons, effectively imposing further costs on other grain handlers to transport their grain to an export facility. “I also think the non-accessibility to the only rail wagons in the state is a restriction of trade,” Mr Brock added. With the committee now dissolved, much of the responsibility of what happens to the industry between now and coming years falls with the State government. “I’ll be watching what the government does with these recommendations very closely,” Mr Brock said. “I will continue as a State MP to talk with ministers and the government to ensure these recommendations should be looked at very seriously for the viability and the continued success of the grain industry. He recommended a standing committee of the Parliament on primary industries to be formed.

JCB range offers total hay handling solution As the hay season hits full swing, farmers and contractors alike are keen to make the most of the current high prices. For farmers, this means getting the hay cut, baled and onto trucks as quickly as possible, while for contractors it can mean extra work and income if they can work fast enough. “Hay prices have more than doubled since October last year, to $160 per tonne this season. Farmers and contractors will be busier than ever and they’re looking for equipment that can help them get the job done as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible,” said JCB Construction EquipmentAustralia’s National Fastrac Product Manager, David Moselen. “We’re already seeing high demand for the JCB range of hay handling equipment including Fastrac tractors, Loadall telehandlers and New Generation skid steer loaders. Individually, each

of these models offer exceptional productivity features, outstanding fuel economy and unsurpassed safety. Together they provide customers with a full hay handling solution. “By choosing a JCB solution for their hay handling needs, customers can take advantage of JCB’s strong dealer network for fast servicing and parts replacement.” For the baling stage, JCB’s Fastrac 8310 and 3230 tractors can travel at road speeds of

up to 80 km per hour – 20 km per hour faster than the nearest competitor, according to David. “These tractors are ideal for large scale operaA JCB tors because they Loadall allow you to move telehandler between jobs fast hard at work. and don’t need to be transported between properties,” he said. The Fastrac 8310 delivers 306 Hp and torque rise levels up to 38 per cent, allowing it to operate a wide range of implements to get the job done, from mowers to large balers. The

integrated chassis and all round suspension design, create a smoother ride for the operator even during long working hours. Once the hay has been baled it needs to be loaded onto trucks for transport or moved for storage. The JCB Loadall range of telehandlers is ideal for this application, with the 531-70, 541-70 and 550-80 models offering up to 145 Hp, with an oil flow of 140 litres per minute. With a cooling capacity tested at 50C, wide core radiators and a single face cooling pack, both models can perform at peak capacity even when operating in extreme conditions. JCB’s New Generation skid steer range includes 10 wheeled models, all of which can be used with a wide range of attachments for feeding out or handling large round bales. Operating capacities range from 612 kg on the 135 model to 1,495 kg on the 330 model.

The collection includes the single, “Wish U Were Here (Feat. Becky G)”, which reached the number one position on the Hot 30 Countdown.

the 1908 Licensing Act prevented single women from holding a publican’s or wine licence. Hotel trading hours have varied over the years. From 1839 to 1915 closing time was 11pm, but a referendum in 1915 changed it to 6pm, remaining so until 1967 when it changed to what we have today. The minimum drinking age of 21 years had been in force since 1839, but this changed to 18 in 1972. Originally known as the Licensing Bench, the licensing authority operated from 1869 but did not have control over all types of licences. In 1880, legislation gave the Licensing Bench the power to grant licences; at that time SA was divided into several licensing districts, each with its own Licensing Court and magistrate. The current Liquor Licensing Act came into operation in October 1997.

It endorsed a reduced annual fee, and the legislation allowed for three classes of licence: • General Publican’s Licence – allowing the sale of wine, ale, beer, spirits, or other fermented liquors for consumption on or off the premises. The annual licence fee was £25. • Wine, Ale, Beer and other Malt Liquors Licence – allowing the sale of these items for consumption on or off the premises. The annual licence fee was £12. • Storekeeper’s Licence – allowing for the sale of wine, spirits and other fermented liquor in minimum quantities and for consumption off the premises.

for this licence was £5. In 1869 came the Storekeeper’s Colonial Wine Licence – allowing the sale of one reputed quart bottle of wine to a person, not to be consumed on the licensed premises, but to be taken away. Licence fee £1. Under early licensing laws (1839) the publican was required to provide for “…a traveller and his horse, or a traveller without a horse, the horse of a traveller not being a guest of the house…or any corpse which may be brought to his public house for the purpose of a Coroner’s inquest.” The penalty for failing to provide this service could be up to £20. The first person licensed to sell retail liquor in SA was John Guthrie, on May 31, 1837. The premises was known as Guthrie’s, Part Town Acre 127 Currie Street, Adelaide – it still trades today, as the Edinburgh Castle Hotel. Except in special circumstances, Talkin’ tunes with

Heritage Highlights

the beginning of liquor licensing legislation in South Australia coincided with the proclamation of SA as a Province in 1836. This early legislation gave any Justice of the Peace or Constable (alone or with another person) the right to enter a licensed premises at any hour of the day or night. If admittance was refused or brazenly delayed, the licence holder would receive some form of disciplinary action. The first statute (No.4 of 1837) was disallowed, mainly because the licence fee of £50 per annum was considered too high, so the first liquor licensing legislation to actually operate in the Province was Act No.1 of 1839. Prior to that, licences were granted by the Governor under his prerogative powers. February 21, 1839 saw the first legislation for SA passed – an amended version of the first proposed act.

Simpson will team with the company on a variety of initiatives, including charitable efforts and branded Cody Simpson merchandise, set for release in 2013. In October, Simpson will join Build-A-Bear Workshop in its efforts for Stop Cyberbullying Month and help launch the national Stuffed With Hugs program, where guests can make a special bear for free to be donated to the Marine Toys For Tots Foundation. It’s totally an image building exercise but I don’t mind, if you’re going to have a an annoying teen pop sensation, at least it’s an Aussie lad who will be promoting our nation on a global scale, ala Kylie Minogue or INXS as examples from yesteryear.

It is nice to have a convenor so interested in plants plus having stewards to assist always great to judge this show. Exhibitors, some new I believe trust we have encouraged them to continue to grow and display them in the Balaklava Show. Orchids are back and there are good exhibits this year.

Min-Man seals premiership MINTARO-Manoora claimed its first A grade flag since 2008, defeating Riverton Saddleworth Marrabel United (RSMU) by 37 points in the North Eastern Football League (NEFL) grand final at Eudunda on Saturday. Gun forward, Alex Kennedy, booted seven goals in a classy display up forward and proved to be the difference in the end, as the most dominant forward on the ground. It was a tense first half, with MinMan opening up a handy two-goal break in a high-scoring first term before the Hawks hit back to reduce the margin to just one goal at the main

the Final Siren with Les Pearson break. The third term was where the Eagles took the game by the scruff of the neck, booting three goals to one and heading into the final quarter with a useful 18-point lead. RSMU did have its opportunities but squandered some chances, both through skill error and great defence from Min-Man. The Hawks kicked one goal from

five scoring shots, which really hurt their chances in the wash-up. Michael Young’s influence on the contest began to show with some telling touches, setting up several goals for his team. The last quarter was one-way traffic, the Eagles slamming on five goals to one in an emphatic finish to the game.

Young was sensational for the Eagles, while Kennedy’s seven goal performance was evidence of why the club chased him hard in the off-season. RSMU were bold in defeat, leaders Sam Noack and Zac Hier both battling until the final siren but the missed opportunities in the third term certainly came back to haunt the Hawks. Eudunda-Robertstown claimed the reserves flag in front of its home crowd with a four-goal win over Blyth-Snowtown, the 24-point lead at quarter time proving the difference by the end of the game.

Two nail biting finishes in the junior grades set up a fantastic day of football. Unfortunately, RSMU were on the losing end of both close results. Eudunda-Robertstown claimed the Under 17 flag, coming from 21 points down at the final change to storm home in the last quarter, winning by three points in an astonishing comeback. The Under 14s grand final proved to be a real thriller, the see-sawing affair between RSMU and Brinkworth Spalding Redhill (BSR) going the Tigers’ way by four points, turning around a six-point margin at threequarter time.

In 1986-87 she was again part of A2 premierships, wining club Best & Fairest in ‘86 and equal runner-up Best & Fairest in 87. In 1996 Trish won A4 Association equal runner-up B&F. From 1999-2002 while still playing, Trish coached various senior teams including the A1 side. In 2003, she was club secretary and researched and published “Mallala Netball Club History 1939 - 2003”, which helped in gaining the SANA Club of Excellence Award, along with five premierships that year. Trish was coach of the A1 premier-

Balaklava Golf Club held its winter breakup and presentation on Sunday with a two-person ambrose, followed by presentations and tea. Players enjoyed their round on the course which has been kept in excellent condition throughout the year by the little band of ‘merry men.’ Winners of the ambrose, (really it was those who coped with the windy conditions the best), were Bill Lokan and Malcolm Liptrot with a nett 65 1/4. Hot on their tails were Merv Hameister and Rick Campbell. Presentations for men’s and ladies winter competitions were made by respective captains, Merv Hameister and Tania Matz. Match committee, Peter Thompson, presented the Split Sixes trophy played over the winter, which was decided on the last two putts of the competition. Doug Taylor, Wayne Nagle and Peter Thompson were the winners in a nailbiting finish. All players thanked the ground staff, committee and members for their voluntary efforts during the year. Summer season starts now with twilight golf due to start on Thursday October 18. Men’s pennants is coming up in November so let Dave Rodgers know of your availability if you’re a gun golfer. And don’t forget the club auction on October 20 as all members are encouraged to support this event and get a table together for a great night!

This was a single grade gathering, one won by one Tania Matz (91/69). Peter Thompson (80/72) nailed Wayne Nagle (87/72) on a count back. Those who also smote in vain were: W. Lokan (83/72), D. Trickett (93/72), M. Hameister (82/73), Ben Michael (90/74), T. Gilmour (111/75), G. Sonntag (96/76), M. Bell (108/76), R. Phillips (112/77), S. Michael (92/78), G.McKenzie (93/79), A. Henstridge (102/79), D. Taylor (93/80), Mike Smith (107/80), J. Curnow (99/81), W. Goudie (103/86), and D. Rodgers (111/94). With no Birdies achieved, we looked to Nearest The Pins for a source of excitement and were duly rewarded by Peter Thompson at the eighth, Ben Michael the 10th and Merv Hameister at the 13th. Golfer of the Winter points were awarded to Tanya Matz (6), Peter Thompson (5), on that count back ahead of Wayne Nagle (4), Bill Lokan (3), Merv Hameister (2) and we wanton wannabees, but one each. This Saturday’s Stableford round will be started by the tyrannical Tate Michael, before his progenitor Ian attempts to calm things down afterwards at the 19th. Last Sunday we held our club presentation day Two-person Ambrose, which drew an impressive field of 32. Most impressive was the pairing of Bill Lokan and Malcolm Liptrot (81/65.25), followed by Rick Campbell/Merv Hameister (76/65.75), and Murray Smith/Graham Ackland (75/67). The remainder of the rabble comprised Peter & Sue Freidrichs (82/67.75), W. Parkin/A. Henstridge (75/68.5), I. Michael & Tanya Matz (77/69), D. Trickett/W. Nagle (78/69), Scott & Louise Michael (79/70.25), Sherie Taylor & Joan Anderson (85/70.75), Richard & Jill Taylor (86/70.75), Doug & Norma Taylor (80/72.25), L. Michael/T. Michael (82/72.75), P. Thompson/Ben Michael (79/73), D. Rodgers/M. Loy (81/74.5), J. Michael/C. Michael (83/75.25) plus Jerry Toms & Joy Veitch (97/79.5). No-one claimed the A Grade NTP, but mighty Merv Hameister smashed the Longest Drive. Graham “Emu” Ackland claimed the B Grade NTP, leaving the Longest Drive for Scott Michael. Sue Freidrichs held the C Grade NTP, while Lachlan Michael belted the Longest Drive. The Ladies’ Longest Drive was clouted by Louise Michael, while others elected to hold the “other” NTPs Joan Anderson (eighth), Jill Taylor (13th), Peter Thompson (17th) and Rick Campbell (2nd).

Premiership memories relived FOND memories were relived on September 9, when about 100 people gathered at Mallala clubrooms to celebrate the football club’s 1962 A grade football premiership victory, against South Gawler. Neil Kakoschke and Ron Tucker spoke to the crowd about football in the 1950s and 60s; facilities, training and some of the characteristics of the game in that era. Craig Argent then spoke about the 1962 season and how the premiership unfolded. The night was rounded off with 1962 premiership coach, Tinker Coleman and his deputy, Charlie Davis, describing how they masterminded the victory, turning a seven-goal second semi final thumping into a nine goal grand final triumph. An amazing 16 goal turnaround against a star studded South Gawler outfit. Everyone enjoyed hearing about football back in 1962, the club’s success that season and catching up with old friends.

Blyth-Snowtown premiers B ly t h - S n o wtown’S A1 netball side grabbed their fourth consecutive premiership on Saturday, vanquishing Eudunda Robertstown in a tightly contested North Eastern Netball Association grand final match, taking victory 43-33. The first quarter was tight, with the Cats coming out strong and making the most of every opportunity. Kristie Johnson was brilliant in the centre and Lauren Collins shot beautifully for Blyth-Snowtown, who

maintained their focus for the four quarters and increased their lead. The Saints fought back hard and had a great last quarter all over the court, winning it by four, but in the end Blyth-Snowtown were the victors winning by 10 goals. Best on Court was awarded to Kristie Johnson, Blyth Snowtown. Results of NENA grand finals played Saturday September 22 at Eudunda: A2 – RSMU 38 def North Clare 35
