Let’s recognise our farmers

Your State Scene columnist Joe Poprzeczny is absolutely right.

The contribution that the agricultural sector has made to WA deserves to be recognised, as Poprzeczny pointed out so well in his column (Business News October 26-November 1).

A museum dedicated to the industry is most worthy and would generate a lot of interest.

It would be another attraction for the State to offer.

There would be more than enough memorabilia, equipment, artefacts, machinery and so on to fill a building.

Rusting, rotting machinery could be restored to its former glory and placed on display for all the public to enjoy.

I am astonished that there are 25 museums in Perth and not one devoted to such an important industry as agriculture.

Where would WA – the country for that matter – be without the hard work and dedication of our farmers?

Their great stories deserve to be told. Surely business – banks especially – could help fund the project.

They have lined their pockets very nicely off the backs of farmers.

Likewise the State and Federal governments. They are forever handing money out for all sorts of projects.

Why not an agricultural museum?

Kalgoorlie is getting a mining hall of fame.

Perhaps there aren’t enough votes in it.
