Gamble Responsibly When Sowing Your Crop

The Sound Of Raindrops Pelting On The Roof When Harvesting in November.

Sing along …

Rain drops are falling on my head
That doesn’t mean it’s not a good thing for the farm,
Raining’s lots of fun…
But I am complaining cause the rain is a falling …
On my crop
And its now at harvest time,
Oh no
This is worrying me.

Classic song isn’t it, might be hard to recognise it, my song writing skills are not always recognised.

Rain drops in July August Sept even October and that would be about right, but it’s the 2nd of November here in Dandaragan Moora West Australia.

The sound of raindrops this time of year is not so good. I know many farmers in this region and rain is not part of the equation at harvest time.

When I drive from Moora to Regans Ford I see rows of canola swathed out in lines to dry before being gathered up to harvest, raindrops in November is not good.

Heard on the news that this October has been one of the driest ones in years, might have looked better had these raindrops arrived a few days earlier. But still that wouldn’t have helped a farmer harvesting their crop today.

Wouldn’t you just love to be a farmer, sow a crop spray a few weeds, harvest it maybe store it for a bit then sell for wads of cash. Sounds like a decent plan. The world needs cereals, there is a proven system in place to grow it, markets out there to buy it so what could possibly go wrong?

Bloody rain, if your karma is not great it can rain too late to sow and too early to harvest for the ultimate outcome, quality and quantity of these little seeds.

Yes these little seeds that we sell as a commodity in a worldwide market, governed in price through supply and demand. And maybe brokers but that’s another story.

Oh yes and let’s not forget, the weather in countries on the other side of the world, did Canada and the US have raindrops at the right time of year? Are their crops bountiful or dry and shrivelled? Are they spoilt by rain at harvest?

This grain producing idea really does sound familiar, like option trading, eft’s, money markets or just straight out gambling. But get it right and hello Christmas shopping time and new car saleyards.

We better set up an advertising campaign to “only grow crops responsibly”. After all you are gambling on the rain for a living, for your families’ well-being, for other businesses to sell products and services to you so they can make a living. You get the point.

When we hear raindrops in April May through September October spare a thought for that cereal box on your table and be grateful for the gamblers that produce it. Remember a happy farmer means a happy town, means a happy region means happy business people and so forth.

The good ole saying that Australia lives off the farmers back may have taken a dent through the mining boom but over time it is still a very valid claim.
Rain drops are magical sounds that we take it for granted, as a farmer they just like them to land within a certain time frame, sounds fair enough.

As I write this those raindrops are getting heavier and its 7am on the 2nd November. I’m not a farmer, we have an accommodation place so the rain drops won’t hurt us today, in fact it means I can turn off the sprinklers as our lawns will get some nice rain water to deepen the greenness and make the village look better. Might even reduce an early bush fire.

This time of year though I can only hear the silence of a harvester in waiting, ready to roar into life and harvest that crop so we can enjoy our breakfast and morning tea scones. (at a fair price J)

Please gamble responsibly.

Land Sea and Air

Land Sea and Air

Seems you can get to Dandaragan Redgum Village near Moora by all means of transport, even though there is no lake river or sea near-by.
There is a chopper in the back car park, a boat in the front car park and many forms of land vehicles in the main car park.

I suppose a speed boat on a trailer may not count as a sea arrival but it’s the next closest thing.
Don’t really know why we are getting such a variety of transport type vehicles at the moment but it certainly makes walking through the carpark at 4.30 in the morning on our way to cook all these guests breakfast a little more interesting.

That’s the thing about a mine shut week where many people gather from all walks of life depending on the contractors needs for the particular maintenance programme.

Some of the crew staying at Dandaragan Redgum Village have been here several times working for the one contractor and going from one mine to another. Most so called mine shuts around the Dandaragan - Cataby are less than a week so these guys get to travel around a fair bit, hence bring the boat.

It maybe a few days off before the next mine they visit and the coast is a very attractive option if they have a few days off. 

Jurien Bay, Cervantes or even Lancelin are only an hour away so why not make the most of it?

dandaragan carpark moora

So whether you fly a chopper for a living, work on mine sites or just passing through with a seed cleaning machine you will always find a park at the Dandaragan Redgum Village.

dandaragan redgum village moora

And yes we will serve you up a hearty cooked breakfast at a time that suits you pack a lunch and come home that evening to a homemade dinner cooked freshly just for you.

Land Sea or Air we can accommodate you :)

Warro Gas Drilling

DRILLING AT WARRO GOING AHEAD

 

Transerv Energy (ASX Code: TSV) as operator of the Warro Joint Venture (WJV) is pleased to announce that it has received approval to proceed with the next phase of drilling at the Warro gas field.
This phase will comprise the drilling of Warro-5 and Warro-6, including extended well testing.
This programme is being funded by Alcoa of Australia Limited (Alcoa)as part of an existing farm-in arrangement whereby Alcoa can earn up to a 65% interest in the gas field through expenditure of up to $100 million
The timing for drilling is dependent on the availability of drilling equipment and various Government approvals As previously announced, the WJV is well advanced in its planning activities and has already lodged the Environmental Plan for the operations. 
In addition, work on identifying drilling long lead items and a rig procurement process is well advanced
Transerv expects to commence drilling operations during the first half of 2015, subject to timely approvals.

Warro Project Background

The Warro gas field lies 200km north of Perth in the Perth Basin and is one of the largest undeveloped onshore gas fields in Australia.
The Warro reservoir section is about 3,750m below surface and has a thickness of
approximately 500m. 
The gas is held within low porosity and low permeability sandstones. 
The field is located 31km east of both the Dampier-to-Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline and the Dongara-to-Perth Parmelia Pipeline.

The Warro gas field is located in EP321 and 407 and covers an area of approximately
7,000ha. EP321 and EP407 are in the process of being renewed and/or partially converted to Retention Leases over the Warro gas field area. The interest holders in the WJV are Transerv Energy (57%) and Alcoa (43%).
Under the farm-in agreement, Alcoa can earn up to a 65% interest in the WJV assets spending up to $100 million on a staged programme comprising exploration and development activities. To date, the WJV have drilled two wells (Warro-3 and 4) and acquired 3D seismic.

During 2012-13 the Warro gas field was the subject of an exhaustive review by US-based, tight gas experts led by Dr Keith Shanley, who is recognised globally for his work in this industry. The Shanley review concluded:

• Warro gas field is a large gas accumulation with resource estimates of:
             o   8 - 10 TCF Gas In Place
             o   3 - 4 TCF recoverable gas
• Development wells should be capable of flowing at high rates and recovering 4 -10 BCF each (50    acre spacing).
• More wells and extended flow testing programmes are required to fully evaluate the full commercial potential of the gas field.

Chairman’s comment
“Alcoa’s decision to proceed with the Warro project is excellent news and we are pleased to see this vote of confidence in the project.
The decision comes after a lot of painstaking work by the Warro Joint Venture, work that has not only reviewed the previous well results but also identified the optimum locations to drill the next appraisal wells.
We look forward to the next phase of drilling and testing, which aims to prove the commercial viability of a 3 Tcf gas field on Perth’s doorstep."

Camel Farm Dandaragan

Former WA Minister Behind Bid To Build Australia's Biggest Commercial Camel Dairy

Former West Australian agriculture minister Kim Chance is hoping to tap into demand for camel milk by building a commercial dairy on his property near Dandaragan, north of Perth.

camel farm dandaragan

Lucy Martin

MARK COLVIN: The estimated 300,000 wild camels roaming Australia's outback could be the key to a new and possibly profitable industry.

Feral camels play havoc with the environment and are a constant source of frustration for pastoralists. But a former West Australian agriculture minister wants to milk feral camels on his property near Dandaragan, north of Perth.

There is demand for camel milk, but the venture comes with significant challenges.

Lucy Martin has more.

LUCY MARTIN: It's similar to cow's milk, with a slightly salty kick.

Camel milk might not be to everyone's taste, but it's surprisingly popular, and at $25 a litre, it's known as "white gold".

Former West Australian agriculture minister Kim Chance is looking to capitalise on the demand by building Australia's biggest commercial camel dairy on his farm in the state's mid-west.

KIM CHANCE: We're looking at about 220-225 camels lactating at any one time, so that means we would have about 450 camels on the property. All of our financial projections are done on a five litre per day per camel yield.

LUCY MARTIN: That's more 1,000 litres of milk per day.

The camels will be captured from the desert around Laverton and transformed from outback ferals into calm milking machines.

Mr Chance again.

KIM CHANCE: The people that we have linked with have perfected a means of domesticating the camels to the extent that they can be machine milked.

LUCY MARTIN: The company behind the project, Camilk Australia, will sell pasteurised milk direct to customers and in some specialty shops.

Some unpasteurised milk will also be sold, but it must be clearly marked not for human consumption.

Kim Chance again.

KIM CHANCE: We hope we don't have to look to export for some years yet. The scope of the market is obviously something that's going to be proven in time, however we have an extensive database of people who've indicated that they will be clients. And that database is in the thousands.

LUCY MARTIN: Dr Mike Laurence from Murdoch University's College of Veterinary Medicine says setting up a camel dairy will present some significant challenges.

MIKE LAURENCE: Infrastructure has got to be the first one. Building a dairy to accommodate large numbers of large animals such as camels is going to take quite a lot of careful planning.

So just building the facilities is probably one big thing. The second one is managing their reproduction. I mean, getting milk from an animal, a mammal, is about reproduction, so that's something that a lot of people don't have a lot of experience in, is camel reproduction.

And looking after their health, that would be the other key challenge to running this fairly intensive program that's been suggested.

LUCY MARTIN: The United Nations estimates there's more than 200 million potential camel milk customers worldwide, and the industry could eventually be worth $10 billion.

That hasn't gone unnoticed in Australia. One WA company already produces unpasteurised camel milk, while a Queensland company sells pasteurised milk on a small scale.

Dr Laurence says more players in the market means more research and development.

MIKE LAURENCE: What drives research into animal production is where there is a viable industry. So if it looks like camel dairying is going to become one of the emerging industries in our state, then the research dollars will flow. And I think it will be a cycle that feeds on itself.

LUCY MARTIN: The Shire of Dandaragan recently granted planning approval for the dairy, and the next step is for Camilk Australia to secure investors.

Kim Chance again.

KIM CHANCE: We can be in production within two months if everything falls correctly, and if our trigger point on the capital-raising is reached. We're actually very close to that trigger point.

LUCY MARTIN: The other challenge: finding enough camels.

KIM CHANCE: There has been rain in the fringe between the desert and pastoral country, and obviously that's great news for pastoralists, but not great news for us, because it means the camels move further into the desert. And the flow of camels might be a bit intermittent.

LUCY MARTIN: Despite the challenges, Mr Chance is confident the dairy will be underway within two months.

Moora Wet Wet Dandaragan Wet Wet

Rain rain go away come again another day, say that again and I'll probably be tied up and shot by every farmer in Dandaragan.

Moora floods

I can hear the sighs of relief from every farmer and horticulturalist in the Dandaragan Moora region after many inches of rain have fallen over the shires in the last week.
The dry seeding has paid off ableit a bit late but better than nothing at all.
Horticulture is so big now in Moora and Dandaragan Shires with Olives  booming again and Citrus nearing full swing, and yes they all need the mighty natural water from the sky as well as the dam water.
Farmers that have seeded their grain crops must surely be relieved and as we have had the Kaylx boys here plus the father and son quartet all seeding I'm sure they will be enjoying a relaxing beer now.
Yes its a bit cool and there will be a few frosts as per normal in June for the Moora Dandaragan Region but am sure that is all planned and catered for.
Next I suppose the spraying rigs will be getting a grease and oil, it never stops for too long, but hey at least there will be something to spray. Better than monitoring the dust levels. Don't think there is too much demand for stunted wheat and juice-less oranges.
Talking to Jono at Lawson Grains (Walyoo) and there was certainly a drop in his stress levels and knowing "yep we got it right". I'm sure he knew they had all along but its nice to get this rain as confirmation. All in a days work young fella.

As for Redgum yes the rain is great, the lawns will love it and that feeling of everything getting a good wash is always welcome. Just glad we have completed the bulk of external painting. The whole Village looks pretty good if I may say so myself, self praise better than none? well maybe not. Its just great that it has rained and there are smiles on farmers faces, that is important and great too see.

I know the Logsy's guys got bogged doing there power pole run a couple days ago which I'm sure was annoying but that's just a small side effect of a great rain, plus it gave them a day off :)

Yathroo Camel Farm

PROPOSED Camel Dairy Lot 51 Koodjee Rd Yathroo, Dandaragan

 

Location: lot 51 Koodjee Rd Yathroo

Applicant: Camilk Australia Pty Ltd

Date: April 8, 2015

 Dandaragan camel farm

Proposal

The proponent is seeking planning approval for a camel dairy farm located on lot 51 Koodjee road Yathroo

 

Background

The applicant is seeking approval to keep up to 450 camels and construct a camel dairy for the purpose of producing camel milk for human consumption from approximately 310 camels at lot 51 Koodjee RD Yathroo.

 

The property comprises of approximately 793 hectares

 

Lactating camels will be kept in semi-intensive yards measuring 26m x 200m at a rate of 20 camels per yard. Dry camels will be kept in open paddocks of approximately 40 hectares.

 

Fencing was an issue raised as a concern by the dept. of Parks and Wildlife as there is a nature reserve (Bundarra A23934) within 2km of the proposal. The department advises that there should be sufficient fencing to prevent infestation of the reserve by feral camels (declared pest). The applicants have provided details of the fencing which includes electric fences to ensure that the camels are retained on the property. A copy of the fencing specifications is provided in the attachments.

 

The proposed dairy will be required to comply with health department guidelines and legislation as the product is intended for human consumption

 

The objective for "Rural" zoned land in local planning scheme no.7 is

 

Rural Zone

 

To provide for range of rural activities such as broadcare and diversified farming so as to retain the rural character and amenity of the locality, in such a way as to prevent land degradation and further loss of biodiversity.

                 

A camel dairy fits under the land use “animal husbandry -

Intensive”. Under the Scheme this is defined as:

 

“Animal husbandry - intensive” means premises used for keeping,

Rearing or fattening of pigs, poultry (for either egg or meat

Production), rabbits (for either meat or fur production) and other livestock in feedlots.

 

Agriculture Intensive, Agroforestry, and Animal Husbandry-Intensive are “D” uses (discretionary approval) in a Public Drinking Water Supply Area where Council will have due regard to the potential impact on groundwater quality. The proposed development is not within a public drinking water source reserve.

 

5.22 PROTECTION OF WATER SOURCES

 

5.22.2 Groundwater Areas

Groundwater protection areas have been established by the Water

And Rivers Commission (now DEC) known as the Jurien

Groundwater Area and Gingin Groundwater Area.

 

Landowners and developers are required to obtain a licence prior to the construction of a bore or well on any property for groundwater extraction except for stock or domestic purposes.

 

The Department of Parks and Wildlife (the previous DEC) and

Department of Water have been consulted on this application.

 

COMMENT

The Shire and WAPC have adopted the Local Planning Strategy -

Rural Land Use and Settlement 2012 (the Rural Strategy) which provides guidance to Council in assessing this type of application.

 

The following considerations are taken directly from the Rural

Strategy and comments provided on each consideration.

 

Local Planning Strategy - Rural Land Use and Settlement 2012

 

Appendix 2 intensive agriculture planning considerations when assessing a planning application for intensive agriculture

 

When Council is considering an application for either Agriculture - Intensive, Agroforestry, Animal Husbandry Intensive and Aquaculture it will take into account the following matters;

 

Strategic considerations

Council will assess the potential impact of the Application and subsequent development to ensure:

 

Services and infrastructure are adequate, including the road to be used to transport produce and to access the property, power, water and other requirements or can be adequately upgraded which would be the responsibility of the applicant.

 

Comment: Suitable sealed and gravel roads and provides good access to the site. The applicant is liaising with service authorities to ensure that suitable infrastructure is provided based on the scale of the proposal.

 

There is no wider potential for land use conflict from things such as spray drift or smoke between existing and proposed use.

 

Comment: There will be no impact.

 

It will have no adverse impact on catchment management and ground and surface water.

 

Comment: The Department of Water have been consulted on the proposal and comments are provided in the attachments.

 

It will not sterilise land with potential for urban expansion or other long term land needs.

 

Comment: There is unlikely to be any urban expansion in the vicinity.

 

Local considerations

Council will assess proposals for intensive agriculture on the ability of the subject land to accommodate the proposed use, and with due consideration of the risk of off-site environmental impacts and conflict with neighbouring land uses. Factors to be addressed by the proponent and subsequently considered by Council include:

 

The nature and capability of the land.

 

Comment: The applicant has advised that a small portion of the land has Bassendean Sands and that this has been taken into account in the assessment of the suitability of the land. The property is not within the Bassendean Sands Special Control Area.

The remainder of the land is suitable for general farming including the keeping of stock.

 

Availability and adequacy of water supply.

 

Comment: The applicant has advised that there is good quality bore water available on the property for stock and that a rainwater tank will be used for other water needs. There may be a requirement to provide additional bore water of suitable quality and quantity if the Department of Health require.

 

Sensitivity of adjacent land uses.

 

Comment: There are no sensitive adjoining land uses.

 

Remnant vegetation and wetland protection requirements.

 

Comment: Both dry and milking camels will be kept in fenced areas away from any remnant vegetation.

 

The proposed site has been cleared.

 

Comment: The area where both dry and milking camels will be fenced is cleared land.

 

Crop rotation and / or specific land management requirements.

 

Comment: Not applicable.

 

Any particular infrastructure layout or transport access requirements.

 

Comment: No specific requirements not already addressed.

 

 

The requirement for permission to use ground and surface water.

 

Comment: The applicant is liaising with the Department of Water to satisfy this requirement.

 

Demonstrate the existing pre-development hydrological regime will be maintained or enhanced where possible.

 

Comment: The property is not on the 100 year flood plain.

 

The separation distances and / or buffers with the adjacent uses which are potentially incompatible can be contained on the subject land rather than being a constraint on adjacent land.

 

Comment: The Bundarra Reserve is within 2 km of the proposal.

The applicants will provide suitable fencing to ensure that camels do not escape into the reserve.

 

The development impacts can be managed on site.

 

Comment: There is sufficient land to accommodate the development impacts.

 

The development should not significantly detract from any scenic landscape and / or conservation attributes identified in the locality.

 

Comment: The development will not significantly detract from any scenic landscape and / or conservation attributes in the vicinity.

 

Other matters which may be required to be addressed if requested by Council.

 

Comment: Nil

 

It is the officer’s view that if the site is well managed, there will be minimal impact to neighbouring properties and the environment and is therefore, supported with conditions.
