Livestock and crops laid to waste
The Age, Australia – Feb 7, 2011

FARMERS in the state’s north are coming to terms with devastating losses from the recent floods that killed or injured tens of thousands of animals and smashed farm infrastructure.

A Department of Primary Industries (DPI) audit of the damage from this summer’s floods – updated on Friday before the weekend’s events – revealed that nearly 30,000 sheep were killed or injured during the floods, a particularly cruel blow to livestock producers given the high current prices for both wool and sheep meat. Poultry losses were also staggering, with 330,184 chickens killed during the event.

In infrastructure terms, the flood damage has been severe. The DPI has been told 4100 kilometres of farm fencing has been lost, along with 127 sheds and 133 other farm buildings.

Farmland that in many cases was looking better and proving more productive than it had been in years thanks to last year’s consistent rainfall has also been hit hard by the extensive flooding.

More than 133,150 hectares of grazing pasture has been ”lost” according to the DPI audit, plus 76,909 hectares of field crops.


WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2011 – USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Jonathan Coppess today issued a reminder to livestock producers throughout the Plains states and the Midwest that FSA programs may be available to assist them.  Many are dealing with harsh winter weather, which is causing serious harm to livestock and forage due to heavy snow, ice and extremely cold temperatures.

In Northeast, farmers watch their buildings crumble under burden of a harsh winter
AP – Feb 5, 2011
For Northeastern farmers long used to coping with all sorts of cold-weather problems, this winter presents a new one: snow and ice that’s bringing down outbuildings, requiring costly repairs, killing livestock and destroying supplies.

Farmers in Connecticut alone have lost at least 136 barns, greenhouses, sheds and other structures as snow measured in feet, not inches, accumulated while January passed without a thaw.

On the morning of February 2, 2010, I warned:

Major Storms Hitting North America and Australia, Food Production Could Be Impacted

This seems to be the case. How much so, however, is still to be determined.

Jesus, of course, warned about a time with such issues that many in the world are now facing:

8 … And there will be…famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

We may be at this prophetic point as all the floods and other problems that have happened in the past year could be considered as “troubles”.

The “beginning of sorrows” that Jesus referred to could have started. Food shortages will affect North Americans and Australians more than most believe.

Jesus also said:

37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! (Mark 13:37)

Food prices and weather matters are something to watch.

Tougher times are coming. And for some parts of the world these tougher time may be here now. People who can prepare, should. Both spiritually and physically.
