AgForce Central Queensland's Sharon Purcell said she had been travelling throughout the region talking to members over the past few weeks and Labor's plan to re-introduce flawed vegetation management laws if re-elected was the issue constantly raised with her.
"All Central Queensland primary producers have ever asked for is fair and balanced vegetation management laws so they can provide food for family dinner tables across Australia and throughout the world,” she said.
Ms Purcell said Central Queensland voters could have a big impact on the state election and in shaping the next state government, with both Keppel and Mirani marginal seats, and a unique and diverse field of candidates running in Rockhampton.
"The recent Agricultural Census showed that the Fitzroy region was the number one beef producing region in the country with more than 2.6 million head of cattle - that's more than in the entire Northern Territory,” she said.
