Member for Lowan Emma Kealy has called for a kangaroo cull program, using the meat for pet food, to be expanded in the Wimmera.
A State Government trial involving Ararat, Horsham, Northern Grampians, Yarriambiack, Southern Grampians and Pyrenees local government areas is due to conclude in June.
Ms Kealy wants to see the program introduced permanently or the trial extended to include West Wimmera Shire.
The culling program will be on the agenda when Ms Kealy hosts Nationals leader Peter Walsh on Friday.
Water management issues and how they affect livestock producers will also be a focal point of the visit.
The pair will visit Horsham, Longerenong College, Balmoral, Hamilton and Casterton.
Ms Kealy said the kangaroo culling trial was a fantastic program.
Jobs
“It’s created 12 jobs at the Hamilton abattoirs, where they are processing the meat for pet food,” she said.
