No bull: Government cracks down on road dung

THE Australian and New South Wales governments have declared war on dung.

A jointly-funded $5 million program to build and upgrade truck wash-out facilities in rural areas has been announced in an effort to reduce problems with cowpats dropping on roads.

"This program will lighten the load on existing infrastructure, freeing up livestock transporters to focus on the welfare of animals, the safety of others on the road and biosecurity," said NSW Farmers spokesman Peter Wilson. -ARM NEWSDESK
