The Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association has today welcomed the announcement of the members of the new Tasmanian Game Council.

TFGA CEO Peter Skillern said that the Council would provide a vital forum to ensure that the game-related issues facing the Tasmanian farming community would be heard at a ministerial level.

“Council Chairman Greg Hall, with both his political and farming background, is an invaluable voice for the sector, and a supporter of the long-term sustainability of agriculture in this State,” Mr Skillern said.

“The TFGA looks forward to working with both the Council and Government on all of the complex challenges surrounding game management in Tasmania.”
