    About the Cause

    In the shadow of an unprecedented crisis, our local farmers face a daunting convergence of challenges that could spell disaster for the cornerstone of our agricultural heritage. Record-breaking drought conditions, the likes of which have not been seen in over half a century, have parched vast expanses of our fertile southwest, depleting dams and annihilating ground feed necessary for our livestock.

    Coupled with soaring feed costs, a plummeting confidence in the livestock export industry, and the inability of meat processing facilities to expand to meet current demand, the very survival of these farmers hangs in the balance. Geoff Pearson, WA Farmers livestock president, describes the situation as “critical”, with no immediate relief in sight.

    The Giveback Getdown arises not just in response to an urgent need, but as a call for solidarity with those who have stewarded our lands through generations. As livestock producers are forced to de-stock their properties amid falling prices—up to 75% lower than previous years - the future of live exports grows increasingly uncertain, the ripple effects threaten the backbone of our community’s food security and economic well-being. The recent announcement by the WA government of $8.6 million in support signals recognition of the severity of the crisis, yet the path to recovery requires a collective effort. 

    With every dollar raised, the Giveback Getdown aims to provide not just financial relief for farmers in the local Walpole & Denmark region, but also a beacon of hope and support for mental health and community well-being, ensuring our farmers have a robust range of resources to weather this storm. Together, we can help secure a future where our farmers not only survive but thrive, sustaining the legacy of Western Australian agriculture for generations to come

    All proceeds will be distributed directly to those in need via the Walpole CRC to those who meet the qualifying hardship criteria
