Beyond the Bale : September 2012
1. "WAITING TO BE CRUTCHED" Andrew Hughes from 'Autumnvale' near Thargomindah in south-west Queensland recently picked up the first prize in the "Australian Year of the Farmer" photo competition for this photo. Andrew is on the south west region committee of AWI's Leading Sheep extension network and attended AWI's Breeding Leadership Course in February. 2. "MATILDA IN THE WOOL" Jed and Nicole Keller from 'Ramsgate', near Tintinara in the south-east of South Australia took this photo of their daughter Matilda sleeping comfortably in their wool. 3. "FOX PREDATION" This photo was taken last month by Casey McCallum on his mobile phone in the pastoral area of South Australia. Casey was gutting roos when the foxes moved in. In the actual photo you can count about 30 foxes, but Casey estimates there were at least 70 in the near vicinity. 4. "MERINO -- THE PERFORMANCE FIBRE!" Chairman of wool exporters Michell Wool, David Michell, testing his company's I/O Merino base layer range of apparel during the 100km 'North Face 100' endurance race held in May in the Blue Mountains of NSW. David and his team performed well by finishing under 23 hours, and David said the Merino performed well too!
