"Sadly in August 2018, during a continuing, crippling drought, my wife and I made one of the toughest decisions of our life... to sell our herd of cattle that we have bred over the last 20 years here on our farm on the Southern Tablelands of NSW, Australia. With no end in sight for the drought, and the diminishing supply and price of hay... there was no alternative but sell our core herd of beautiful cows and their new born calves. What we will be left with, that we hope to be able to hang on to... is some young heifers, a few first time calvers and a couple of old cows that are part of the family. We also have a hat full of sheep and their lambs... and our Appaloosa horses. If we can keep those remaining cattle until the drought breaks, we will be in the position to start again. It's going to be a long haul before we can even contemplate being in this position. Right now we are facing the next few years with no income from the farm. In purchasing this CD you're helping not only keeping cows alive, but saving a breed line and contributing towards the future of a property that's been in the family for over 100 years"
