National summit to investigate feed problems

Published on 10 October, 2007, Last updated at 05:38 GMT

The livestock and poultry industries will hold a national summit in Canberra later this month to look at how to address critical feed shortages caused by the drought.

Many sectors are also being crippled by high prices for grain, because of the shortages.

The Agriculture Minister Peter McGauran says there is real concern Australia could run out of feed grain, and he's calling on growers to work with livestock producers to manage the problem.
