What other landholders have to say about SSAA Farmer Assist?

Tracey W, Newstead

“We currently have our third shooter here. The program is working well for us – every pest animal taken is one less, so that in itself is a positive. Our volunteers have all been good fellas. I know it is expensive for them to take part, so we appreciate their efforts. There are still plenty of pest animals out there, so culling here will be an ongoing project. The total tally so far is edging up towards the thousand mark, with thousands more to go. The program set-up (online) seems good and we have had enough responses to be able to select those shooters who sound most suitable. We haven’t had to reactivate the listing so far, and I think the working principle of the scheme is very good”.
Jane B, Cunnamulla

“My husband and I registered for the Farmer Assist program two days ago and posted our job this morning. We have already had two replies, and one seems to be a perfect fit for our situation. On speaking to the member, he was not only professional but polite and knowledgeable, and we have arranged for him and his friend to begin ASAP. I would like to congratulate you on the service which you have set up, as this is a simple solution to a problem that has been ongoing on our farm for quite some time and has defied other attempted solutions. Also, I thank you for your phone call to myself on Tuesday. I found it again very professional and appreciated you taking the time to touch base with us, introduce us to the program and answer any questions we may have had. I appreciate that it is not easy to spread word about this program, but it is something that I feel I will have no problems recommending to others, and indeed have already mentioned to friends and family. I look forward to enjoying a successful partnership with your organisation and your members”.
Julia A, Mareeba

“Farmer Assist is definitely the way to go if you have an unwanted wildlife problem on your property. The quick, easy and effective SSAA process had us in touch with responsible shooters who have come out and helped us to significantly reduce the impacts of pests on our crops and grazing lands”.
Andrew, Hannaford

“We have always found the Farmer Assist shooters extremely good, communicative and obliging (and very successful!). They ring before they come; and on the way before arrival. They were clean, tidy and left no mess. They camped in our cottage”.
Andrew C, Aramac

“The majority of Farmer Assist members I have had have been committed to reducing kangaroo numbers on the property. They have put in the hours and achieved good tallies. They have been forthcoming with anything that they saw that they believe I should know about. I have found all members to be good, honest and respectful people”.
John L, Aramac

“I have found the Farmer Assist program to be extremely helpful in controlling feral animals on our drought stricken property. I would recommend the program to other farmers”.
Pat H, Longreach

“A great response from my ad allowed me to select and meet some good quality people who are becoming very valuable to my little business in trying to get a more environmental and economic balance”.
Roger, Roma
