‘We help farmers’

Written by 

Fish & Game took umbrage at a Milking It story on farmer Dean Rabbidge and his tweet. It says contrary to the report, F&G actually worked with Rabbidge on this wetland creation. 

A F&G field officer visited the site to survey it, again before construction to give advice and again during construction -- all free of charge. F&G says it also offered to help pay for the work, a point “deliberately not acknowledged” by Milking It. The money was to have been paid on project completion, followed by F&G staff visiting to take pictures. “Fish & Game gives farmers significant sums of money every year to create wetlands and ponds.  The article in question creates exactly the opposite impression by claiming Fish & Game does not work with farmers.”
