Clarence Valley farmers should consider a profitable visit to the NSW Government’s SafeWork stand at Primex this month, according to Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis.
“All up, agricultural businesses and workers could save up to $2500 on quad bike safety incentives and small business rebates,” Mr Gulaptis said.
“Farming is incredibly important for jobs and the economy in our area, whether it is cane and horticulture in the Clarence Valley, beef and dairy in the Richmond Valley or exciting new projects like macadamias and even medicinal cannabis.”
NSW agricultural production is worth more than $12 billion a year.
The SafeWork NSW Quad Bike Safety Improvement Program offers two rebates worth up to $1,000 each for farmers who adopt a range of quad bike harm prevention strategies.
Primex Field Days will be held from 14-16 June at Inglebrae Farms, Bruxner Highway, Casino.
