This video is about a diverse farm for the production of sheep.
Video in review: Dee Nolan works at Gum Park in Hynam, SA. The property is on the Limestone coast of SA, with 100 acres olive groves and sheep (Certified organic), where the soil is vibrant and healthy. They have integrated farming system with production of olive oil and sheep grazing (Southdown sheep - short wool and meat producers). They breed mainly Rams for other farms to buy. There is a focus on genetics to get good body size for eating and breeding by Artificial Insemination. Care of sheep providing fox proofed lambing paddocks and giving extra protection to lambs when there is cold weather.
