Future of Farming - Darling Downs QLD
Flood irrigation methods were not maximising water use and crop production.
A 1.2 kilometre lateral move irrigator on the Rockliff family’s “Windermere” property not far from Dalby, in Queensland’s Darling Downs region.
Noel and Greg Rockliff, who primarily grow winter cereals and cotton, state that it is “difficult not to be overawed by the newcomer to the property,” which is one of Australia’s largest. “But it's well worth it,” they advise of the system.
Garden of Eden Reborn - Goulburn Valley VIC
SolutionUnderground piping system - part of the $1 billion Stage 1 NVIRP
Gilbert Dalle-Nogare owns a dairy farm, ‘Eden Park’ 12km north of Shepparton in north east Victoria. Years of prolonged drought had taken its toll on Gilbert, ravaging his ‘oasis’ and forcing his share-farmer, Andrew Younger, to reduce his dairy herd – that is, until this year when good rains fell and the new irrigation pipeline was installed on his property.
Solar Pump Ensures Water - Darling Downs QLD
SolutionA solar tracking borehole pumping system means cattle won’t go thirsty.
When Goomburra district beef cattle producer Syd Telford glances at the sun winding its way across the Darling Down skies he can rest assured its working for him to provide a reliable supply of stock water. A combination of the sun and a solar tracking borehole pumping system means cattle on the Telford’s 158 hectare property won’t go thirsty through such mishaps as a windmill or pump motor breakdown.
