NSW Farmers statement on flood assistance

NSW Farmers President James Jackson thanks the state and federal governments for making disaster assistance available to affected communities.

"It has been horrible seeing the fury of mother nature of the past week, and we are standing by our members who are living in flood-affected communities," Mr Jackson said.

"While it may be weeks until we understand the full impact of these heavy rains and floods, I know our farmers are resilient and they will be getting back on with the job of growing our world-class food and fibre.

"I would encourage any eligible communities to take advantage of the help that has been offered, and on behalf of our farmers I thank our governments for offering this help."
