ISSN 1447-9680 FRONT COVER Pictured is a bird’s eye view of a mob of sheep being moved as part of a rotational grazing system at Charlie and Anne Maslin’s property at ‘Gunningrah’ in the NSW Southern Tablelands. To manage the significant annual variations in rainfall at Gunningrah, the Maslins’ focus has been to look after the land, evaluate what it has to offer and then attempt to stock it accordingly. As well as introducing rotational grazing, they have been lifting and maintaining ground cover and improving the water cycle of the country so when it rains there is very little run off.
