James Kerr – building drought resilience on Buckleboo Station

Host Drew Radford speaks to James about recent initiatives to build drought resilience, including the installation of telemetry technology, upgraded infrastructure, and the division of paddocks into more manageable grazing areas. The photos below show the incredible difference two years can make.
This work on Buckleboo Station has been supported by the SA Arid Lands Landscape Board through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program. The station is currently involved in an SA Drought Hub project on ground truthing satellite imagery for use in pasture management.
