I FIND it insulting Ceres thinks its wind farm is compatible with farming.
I don’t think us not being able to aerial spray/spread is compatible in the least.
If the proposed 199 turbine wind farm goes ahead, it is going to cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars to purchase new machinery to get our spraying and spreading done.
Not to mention the extra man hours involved and the crop losses from wheel tracks.
Ceres has said there will be compensation, but why should we be disadvantaged in any way when we chose not to have turbines on our property?
All we want is the right to continue farming our property in the manner we choose and protect it for our future generations.
To even consider putting turbines on prime agricultural land is irresponsible.
