Then and now spreading.

We have been using poultry manure as our base fertiliser for many, many years. The way we spread hasn’t really changed much over the years... just the machinery. Back then the Leyland was used as both the loader tractor and the tractor that pulled the spreader… without a cab.

Grand Architecture.

The Sacred Heart Cathedral in Bendigo, Victoria is an English Gothic architectural masterpiece. It is one of Australia’s largest churches being 75 metres long and has a ceiling height of 24 metres. The main spire is 87 metres high. Building commenced in 1897 but it wasn’t fully completed until 1977.

It is an impressive building.

The Invisible Farmer Project

Australia’s national broadcaster the ABC has joined up with the Australian Research Council and Museums Victoria to conduct the largest ever Australian study about women on the land.

Submissions were called to pay tribute to farming woman all around Australia via the ABC Open website.
And … well… here is one such submission that you may find of interest.

A smoky sunset.

Yesterday's setting sun was actually an incredible deep red but it was impossible to capture that colour intensity on my camera... so you will just have to visualise it as red!
