Country Hour for Friday 8 September, 2017



The Western Australia state budget has been released. But what are the main points of interest from a primary industries perspective?

Are Western Australian sheep farmers trying hard enough to prevent flystrike without mulesing? A WA wool grower stopped the controversial practice over a decade ago and has not looked back.

Sucker lambs have cracked the elusive $200 mark at the sales in Wagga.

Undies, jocks, drawers - there's plenty of names for underwear from all over the world but really only one use for them...until now. A group of farmers in Tennessee is using underwear for soil testing.

The wool markets remain strong for WA and the east, with limited bales on offer.

And in the final story for this week's special on diversification in Western Australia, a Great Southern farming couple talks about planting blue-gums, pulling them up and then converting the land back to pasture and sheep.
