Getting real about rural issues

Welcome to the 2021 Western Rural Guide. The last two years have been a battle. Drought, fires, mice, floods, and a global pandemic. Yet despite all the negatives, the camaraderie and the community spirit, the friendships, and the support that is available in regional and rural NSW continues to shine through, and things are starting to look a lot brighter.

This season's harvest promises to be a beauty, stock are looking as healthy as ever and breeding numbers are good, government investment in agriculture and support is continuing to grow, and best of all- COVID restrictions are starting to ease meaning a summer full of catching up with friends and family.

This years' publication has a range of ideas, tips, information and insights into life on the land at the moment. So sit back, put your feet up and enjoy the 2021 Western Rural Guide.
