DUCKS CAUSING DAMAGE TO CROPS AT FROGMORE [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 8 June 1951
DUCKS CAUSING DAMAGE TO CROPS AT FROGMORE The Chief Secretary and his restrictions on the de struction of -ducks have come in for some high condemna tion at Fragmore over the last few weeks. There are hundreds of ducks in the district now and many farmers have complained of the damage being caused by these birds to crops. Indeed, in one paddock adjoining the village two or three acres of crop, sur rounding a dam, have been ruined. Some farmers feel that they and the people of Australia have more right to make a living -and sat food than the ducks to mul tiply and grow fat. The Chief Secretary obvious ly thinks otherwise, as -stall it is- a closed season for ducks. It lias been reported from the Riverina rice growing- areas that most growers are in a bad way because of ducks and it is sincerely hoped here that things, are not allowed to a-each such' seriousness as in that area* ?? The matter will no doubt come' before the next meeting of Hife; Progress Association. , ; :i
