Country Hour for Wednesday 21 December, 2016



With Australia's national cattle herd at its lowest level in decades, the resulting demand for stock has seen prices soar to new record highs in 2016. What in store for 2017?; A south-west Queensland table grape grower is hoping a gamble on blueberries will pay off; All eyes are on cotton crops in central Queensland at the moment as growers wait to see if the early or late planted crops will fare better over summer; Into the trenches for the war against weeds as a natural resource management group celebrates killing 50 million prickly acacia trees; 'Tis the season for turkeys, with one poultry farmer estimating up to 75 per cent of turkeys grown in Australia are sold into the Christmas market; And mangoes at bargain prices...only at roadside stalls near Mareeba.
