The Victorian Breast Screen mobile service has
dropped anchor in Corryong to provide free
breast screens to local women until next Friday,
The bright pink van - known as Majorie - is
located outside the Towong Council offices and
women aged 50 to 74 are being encouraged to
book a free screen.
Marjorie was last in town in 2014 when 50.8 per
cent of local women booked an appointment. This
compares to 54.4 per cent of women statewide
who screen regularly.
BreastScreen Victoria CEO Vicki Pridmore
said the van’s visit makes it convenient for local
women to take advantage of the free service.
“A breast screen is potentially lifesaving,” she
said. “I strongly encourage the women of the
Upper Murray to put their health first and book
a breast screen while Marjorie is in town.”
Breast screens take 10 minutes every two years
and are conducted by women.
“One in eight women will get breast cancer and
regular screens are the best way to find breast
cancer early,” Ms Pridmore said.
A free breast screen can be booked by calling 13
20 50 or visit the website breastscreen.org.au.
Bonnie and Paula are waiting
for you to book an appointment.
The Victorian Farmers
Federation (VFF) has
welcomed a new push from
the Victorian government
to wipe out wild dogs in
the North East.
The government has
announced it will splash
out $6.2 million over
four years on a scheme
to manage foxes and wild
dogs, including a move to
increase aerial baiting for
wild dogs to twice a year.
“Producers have an
ongoing battle with wild
livestock and this plan will
help farmers reduce the
impact of this menace,”
VFF spokesperson Peter
As well as doubling
up on aerial baiting, the
government will establish
Advisory Committee on
wild dog management and
conduct a “bigger, better
bounty from next year.”
Wild dogs create a
significant challenge for
land managers and are
estimated to cost Victoria’s
livestock industry up to
$18 million every year.
The new advisory
committee will be chaired
by Member for Eastern
Victoria, Harriet Shing,
and will have up to six
representing a cross-
section of stakeholders.
“The new committee’s
input will complement
the work of the Wild Dog
Action Plan Delivery
Group,” said Minister for
Agriculture Jaala Pulford.
“In recognition of
the role hunting can
play in supporting the
management of wild dogs,
a bounty of $120 will also
be introduced,” she said.
The collection of skins
from within control zones
in Northern Victoria and
Gippsland will occur
October 2017, in addition
to the $10 fox bounty.
The wild dog control
program also includes
dingoes which play an
important role in the
controlling both foxes and
committee will assess the
use of the bounty after
12 months and evaluate
buffer zones to ensure they
continue to balance dingo
protection and prevention
of stock losses from dog
The new measures
follow an independent
evaluation of Victoria’s
wild dog management
includes poison baiting,
fencing, hunting and
Expressions of interest
for membership of the new
advisory committee will
be sought next month.
