Benefiting from drought and coming out on top – the Woodburn journey with Bart Davidson

One of the remarkable journeys that graziers in Australia have undergone in recent years is in adapting to the challenges of volatility induced by drought at one extreme and wetter La Niña years at the other.

Despite prolonged dry periods impacting landscape grass cycles, water cycles and livestock, graziers like Grant Wickham from ‘Woodburn’, Walcha, NSW, have persevered in optimising their operations to build resilience and profitability.
