Labor's anti-farming laws, that make it harder for farmers to feed their cattle and sheep during drought, could be scrapped in State Parliament this week as the Liberal National Party continues to fight the outlandish laws.

Liberal National Party Shadow Minister for Natural Resource Management Dale Last will move a disallowance motion to block the introduction of regulations that limit Queensland farmer's ability to feed their livestock in drought.

"The LNP is listening to those hurting most from this devastating and prolonged drought and this is why we are taking action," Mr Last said.

"We are hearing loud and clear that Queenslanders want to support our farmers in drought, and the last thing our farmers need is more bureaucratic red tape.

"Labor's anti-farming laws are doing the opposite in making this drought bite even harder for farmers who are just trying to survive.

"In drought affected parts of Queensland farmers use Mulga as an emergency and last resort feed for their drought affected herds.

"Mulga is a shrub or small tree that is found in vast quantities throughout Queensland.

"It's designed to survive in the outback with its leaves growing back quickly after sheep and cattle use them for feed.

"This plant is a lifeline in outback Queensland and that is why it is essential that farmers maintain access to these Mulga trees for emergency fodder and feed.

"Labor's anti-farming laws make this process more difficult and is putting the welfare of our Queensland cattle and sheep in jeopardy.

"During drought government has two roles; the first is to directly support farmers, the other is getting out of the way and letting our farmers do what they do best – survive these droughts by being the efficient and effective professionals they are.

"It's time for Labor to stop putting politics before people and scrap their anti-farming laws and support our fellow Queensland farmers through this drought."
