Background

Dalara Pastoral is a diversified agricultural business with operations at Blackville on the Liverpool Plains, Denman in the Upper Hunter Valley and Walcha in the southern portion of the New England Tableland.

Commercial Angus herds are run at Blackville and Walcha.  These herds supply the Denman fattening operation with steers and cull heifers for sale to feedlots and processors.  In addition, sheep are bred for fine wool and meat on the Walcha property.

A broadacre cropping operation at Blackville produces durum wheat, chickpeas, sorghum and cotton using contemporary no-till, controlled traffic farming methods.

Question
