The Male Model from Mudgee Ken Sutcliffe helping our farmers

Our farmers are experiencing one of the worst droughts in recent history and we all need to dig deep to help out.

Legendary sports commentator and the Male Model from Mudgee Ken Sutcliffe is helping our farmers by organising a race day at Mudgee with fuds raised going directly to our farmers.

More help could be on the way for desperate farmers after the federal government announced drought-affected households would be given cash payments of up to $12,000.

Large swathes of eastern Australia are in one of the worst droughts of the past 100 years, prompting the government to announce a $190 million relief package.

Producers eligible for the Farm Household Allowance will be given relief of up to $12,000 for couples and $7200 for singles.

The Mudgee Race Day to help farmers is on Sunday September 2 at Mudgee Turf Club.
