Tasmanian Primary Industries Minister Guy Barnett has lauded the stock underpass program for improving farm and road safety.
Mr Barnett said the program, extended with $600,000 in the state budget, was a great example of helping both farmers and the wider community.
"Crossing cattle on roads is a significant issue for many dairy and livestock farmers and we have been working with the TFGA and DairyTas, as well as local farmers and councils, to develop a practical approach to address the issue," Mr Barnett said.
Tassie farmers can receive up to 33 per cent of costs to install a cattle underpass to a maximum of $80,000.
Mr Barnett said the government fully funded stock underpasses where a new road alignment split a property.
"Supporting and listening to Tasmanian farmers is a key part of our Agrifood plan to grow the sector ten-fold to $10 billion by 2050 and the latest Agri-Food scorecard shows our plan is working," he said.
