Agriculture Victoria is working with primary producers, landholders, local government, and service providers across the three affected shires which includes Hepburn Shire, City of Ballarat, and Moorabool Shire. 

Agriculture Victoria has appointed an Agriculture Recovery Team, led by an Agriculture Recovery Manager to coordinate support for local producers, providing technical information and referrals to other available support.

Agriculture Victoria can provide primary producers with information and technical advice on:

  • soil management
  • sediment and run-off issues
  • water quality management
  • pasture recovery
  • fencing repair and replacement
  • livestock health and feed budgeting
  • business decision making support.
