You have a degree in Environmental Science yet you don't understand why anyone would question why you, or anyone, would want to traipse cattle through forest.I've got a B in Env Sc...Conservation and Land Management with a Masters in Fire Ecology from the early 90's.
Your ATYPICAL uneducated farmer it seems.
What we are seeing in Env Sc academia now, especially in fire ecology and overall land management, is utterly ridiculous.
No, or very little, boots on the ground research, just an overall ideology based on spurious, ridiculous bulls**t papers that then heavily influences Gov't policy because ...
Well, I honestly don't know why.
But the environment is paying for it now.
And it will take literally centuries for these fire grounds to recover...if ever.
If we have a significant rain event in the next few months, all of that top soil and seed bed will be in the Pacific Ocean....and then the Greens will be up in arms yet again.
You are all idiots.
I've given you facts Jack, (the most ironically named poster in the history of the internet), Outback.
Look at you deflecting from the issue at hand.
"Farmers are happy to let it die"
That is idiocy in the extreme.
What is your issue with that?
Apart from trying to look even more ignorant
The one and ONLY reason is money.
Like the majority of farming practices these days, it is all about money.
If farmers need to traipse their cattle through what's left of our forests, their farming isn't viable and should be closed down.
