Formatted Abstract/Summary
Livestock farming in Australia can be tough, and the farmers that look after the animals have the reputation of being tough to match. Animal welfare scientist, Clive Phillips, and his teacher wife Alison, decided that they had to learn more about how the livestock producers look after their animals and their attitude towards the welfare of their stock. They planned a 26000 km tour of 50 cattle and sheep producers around Australia, setting off from Brisbane. They spent six months visiting the producers, sharing their lives, sometimes working on their farms and discussing with them the impact of their management systems on the welfare of their stock. What unfolds is a fascinating story of how Australia’s livestock producers care for, and about, their animals. Producers share their innermost thoughts about the stresses of managing livestock in a harsh and unforgiving climate, and their love and joy in the countryside that they manage. On the way Clive and Alison visit national parks, outback towns and villages to provide a deep insight into rural Australia in the 21st century.
