LNP Shadow Minister for Agriculture Tony Perrett has called on all levels of Government to show some leadership and get much-needed feed out of Brisbane and up to starving cattle immediately.

B-doubles full of hay have been waiting to go north since Monday, a military cargo plane has been sitting on the tarmac at Amberly Air Base since Tuesday – but graziers in the North West are yet to receive anything.

"Thousands of cattle are needlessly dying while the Palaszczuk Labor Government is standing around waiting for someone to give them the okay to send desperately-needed feed," Mr Perrett said.

"The Federal Government has already approved. Labor needs to stop wasting time and get the plane in the air.

"I'm urgently calling on Annastacia Palaszczuk to show some leadership and take responsibility for the welfare of tens-of-thousands of animals.

"The time for talk is over. We just want Labor to do their job and take action.

"Graziers in the North West have undergone significant hardship from both drought and now floods and Labor's delays are shameful.

"The Liberal National Party supports graziers and will be doing everything in our power to help the community get back on their feet as soon as possible."
