Happy dog day! This farm Lab supports #paws4climate as she likes nothing better than mild weather, a dam to swim and a damp hole to lay in. The temperature is only 20C today and she is already feeling the heat! Let’s dial down the heat for our pets by ⬇️ GHG emissions.

Today is #DogDay, a day to appreciate the love and value that dogs bring to our daily lives. Beside almost every farmer is a climate-smart, ever-loyal farm dog.

To celebrate our favourite four-legged farmhands, we are calling on farmers and supporters to share pictures of their best dog pictures with #paws4climate over the next month. Bonus points if you tell us how your dog is helping you in the fight for climate action!

Lilly here has watched the climate changing over the last 14 years, and thinks it’s about we got some serious climate policy.

We’ll be shortlisting some of the best, and you’ll get a chance to vote for your favourite farm dog on our website. The top 12 are going to be featured in our 2021 calendar!

To enter the calendar photo competition, make sure to use #paws4climate, tag us in the picture and upload a copy to our website (in case we miss it due to privacy settings)

Why have you signed the #netzeropetition? Sign now (link in bio) and let us know why in the comments. 🌞🌾🚜💛 Peter Holding, a third-generation farmer from Harden, says “farmers are adapting as fast as they can, but I don’t believe there is any chance we can adapt our way out of this. All adaptation in ag is important, because it gives us a window in which to make change. But we’re using up the window and there’s no change.” ...

Sign the petition calling for the Prime Minister to set an Australia-wide net zero emissions by 2050 policy (links in bio).


My name is Anika Molesworth and I raise sheep with my family near Broken Hill. I love the ancient gum trees and incredible wildlife I share my home with. I am proud to grow food for people, and it is breaking my heart that climate change makes it harder and harder for farmers like us to do this.

Last summer, as the rest of the country burned, we sweltered through the hottest summer on record. I have watched the trees die, the wildlife disappear, and our sheep be sent away. I want nothing more than to be able to focus on the day-to-day issues of our farm, be it a busted water pipe, or fixing a fence. But with climate change looming over my future, I have no choice but to take a stand.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison, farmers are looking for leadership from your Government and it is currently lacking. The National Farmers' Federation, representing more than 80,000 Australian farmers, supports an economy wide target of net zero carbon emission by 2050.

We call on you and your government to support this policy and get Australia moving to a low carbon future.

Specifically, we want:

1. As a first step, set a net zero emissions by 2050 target
2. Adopt the policies that will get us there.

The Victorian Climate-Smart Agriculture Fellowship is aimed at current and emerging industry leaders who are committed to the sustainability of the agricultural sector. It is designed to build capacity to manage climate risk, while supporting business and industry resilience.

We’re looking for people with the potential to change the game, shape opinion and policy, and help agriculture and rural communities manage climate risks and prosper in a low-carbon world.

Meet the latest in our Climate-Smart Farmer in Focus series, Sam McCardel. After completing the 2018 Victorian Fellowship, Sam was inspired to make significant changes to his farm in Whroo, northern Victoria.

Through the power of pig manure, Sam has been able to transform his property and turn it into a successful farm operation.

"The water-holding capacity of the soil has dramatically improved, and the life in the soil just writhes out of the musky rich dark loam. The soil has come back to life. The diversity of the grasses has also increased and the rootstock depth has improved dramatically. That’s why we can now stand the drought when neighbouring properties can’t so well."

You can read Sam’s story and apply to be a part of the 2020 Victorian Fellowship program through the link in our bio.

With heavy hearts we bid farewell to Verity Morgan-Schmidt today as she leaves Farmers for Climate Action to take on new, exciting challenges that will see her continue her amazing work as a champion of Australian agriculture. Verity's passion, energy and vast knowledge has driven FCA's emergence as a leader in the space where climate solutions and farming intersect. In her three and a half years with FCA, first as our inaugural CEO and then as Policy and Partnerships Director, the voices of farmers around the country were heard loud and clear and climate policy across the industry began a transformation.  Everyone at FCA will miss her immensely and we consider it a real honour and privilege to have been part of her incredible journey which we have no doubt will see Verity play a vital role in shaping a thriving farming sector for decades to come. Thank you Verity and the very best of luck. ...

It is not to late to sign up to be attend the Wagga Wagga climate change, drought and community resilience forum. This is the first in a series of forums which will present the latest in climate change science, explore the impacts of climate change that communities are already facing and discuss strategies to help communities through the next few weeks, months and years. The forums will also provide the community with tools to go out and create the community change they want to see.

Guest speakers include Dr Rob Gordon, Professor Mark Howden, Denis Ginnivan and Wendy Cohen

Comment on Facebook

Just a note of thanks for hosting this tremendously informative webinar. I am but a mere city dweller with an interest in regenerative agriculture. It’s uplifting to hear of the research based practical innovations that are being put into tailored beef production on Lucinda’s acreage. This story balances the narrative that we hear so often from media voices who are essentially opposed to the beef and dairy industry. I look forward to future FfCA webinars

Is there a way to contact Lucinda after the event? I am interested in discussing further some of the topics covered in her presentation.

Watching from ALASKA.

Human population is too great, I ask one question do you have kids if the answer is no because of these problems i know you are not just paying lip service, please dont tell me you care about the environment and have 2 or 3 kids you have lost me at that point.
