HI, I just watched this and thought others could be interested. More unconventional farming that works well.

An oceanographer tries her hand at wool growing.
AIRLIE WARD, PRESENTER: Earlier in the program, we had sheep on Flinders Island, now a look at a very different approach to the animal.
Sounds bizarre, an oceanographer farming in Tasmania's southern Midlands, but for Oatlands woolgrower Nan Bray, it's life going full circle.
Not long into her career change though she faced her biggest challenge - drought. Nan Bray spoke to Fiona Breen about how it forced her to rethink her traditional farming practices and try some unconventional methods.

Definitley worth alook.
