Manage episode 279946394 series 2804673
Gillian Fennell is a cattle farmer sitting on a million acres in central Australia. In this episode, she speaks about looking after the land so the right plants can grow that will feed her livestock, why she runs only 5000 head of cattle on her massive property, and why branding the hide of animals is necessary. You might ask, "is a cattle episode relevant for the Plants Grow Here podcast?" And I would respond, "absolutely".
