I spent of my working life working with…
…sheep on our sheep farm.
A good sheep dog was invaluable and
a great companion on many long days
alone in the wool shed
or ploughing paddocks.
Cattle were also part of the family farm
until the 1983 drought.
It was decided that it was much easier
to keep sheep alive than it was to
feed cattle during drought conditions.
Even though I am not a ‘cat’ person,
cats were/are also an invaluable part
of any farm as hay stacks attract
both rodents and reptiles.
Cats helped limit rodents especially
and would not back away from snakes either.
More and more farms are being turned into
huge power generation sites over
the past decade or so.
