Growers can now buy their own delivery docket books – saving costs, reducing mistakes and improving record-keeping and communication between growers, wineries and transporters.
The new national standardised delivery dockets have been developed by Australian Vignerons with support from WGCSA, in response to grower requests for a convenient option that can be used when wineries don’t supply their own form.
It complies with transport, quarantine and label integrity legislation. The dockets are available from WGCSA and cost $11 (plus postage) per book of 25 forms in triplicate.

Docket books are also available to collect from regional offices during January & February to save postage costs. Email us for further details.
A new program launched by the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia is providing landholders with access to a database of professionally-accredited shooters to help with on-property pest animal control.
The program – called SSAA Farmer Assist – registers SSAA members as shooters, ensuring they have a skill competency equivalent to commercial professional macropod harvesters.
To be part of the program, farmers need to register online and then create a job advertisement to manage applications from shooters. The online tool gives farmers a free, simple and fast service for dealing with problem wildlife.
