Monto Agricultural Strategy Survey

About the Program

The Monto Agricultural Strategy is being delivered by the Burnett Catchment Care Association thanks to the Australian Government’s funding through the Building Better Regions Fund – Community Investment Stream.  


The Agricultural Strategy aims to empower growers by providing relevant information regarding diversifying income streams, reducing financial risk and ensuring more reliable farm incomes. 

Key sectors to be investigated include but are not limited to livestock industries, cropping, horticulture, hemp, bio fuel, dairy and beekeeping.  Parameters that will be considered regarding these sectors comprise of productivity, social and environmental implications specific to the Monto district. 

As part of this research we are currently undertaking a survey to better understand the existing agricultural situation in order to direct the project going forward.  What we ask of you, as a landholder in the Monto district, is to complete this short survey to have your say on the future of the Monto district. 

Completing this survey is not compulsory however we hope to get as many responses as possible.  The more responses we receive, the higher chance we have of producing a strategy that is relevant to our local landholders.  In my experience, it is uncommon for funding to be awarded to such a specific agricultural region so I am looking forward to making the most of this opportunity. 

As a way of saying thank you, every survey completed prior to 1 Feb 2019 will go in the draw to win a $500 gift voucher at a Monto rural supplies store (your choice of FarmStuff Monto, Kewpie Rural Monto or Monto Rural Traders).
