Sheep Learning
A youth development initiative for 12 to 23 year olds is helping attract a younger generation to the sheep and lamb industry.

Rural News
A wrap of rural and regional issues from around the country this week.

Rock Star
Almost all of WA’s western rock lobster catch is packed live and air freighted to China. The industry generates half a billion dollars a year, and is a world leader when it comes to sustainability.

Fake Meat
Fake meat is growing in popularity but should lab-grown, man-made - and even plant-based meats that bleed fake blood – be called meat … and should livestock producers be worried?

Market Reports
Market activity and analysis with Kerry Lonergan.

Pastured Chickens
A farmer who spent several years working in sustainable agricultural policy at federal level is now pursuing his dream of putting innovative principles into practice. His award-winning family run farm takes a 'regenerative' approach to farming that aims to produce food which is good for the animal, good for the land and good for the plate.

Write Stuff
Rural romance novels - 'lust in the dust' - set on farms and stations in the outback have been a phenomenon in Australian fiction in recent years. But there's a new trend for authors championing our regional towns, and the familiarity of small-town living is really connecting with readers.

Cutting Through
A low-volume livestock producer started his own abattoir when he couldn't obtain the standard of service he expected from existing providers. Now, his abattoir and meat processing works employs five people, and provides a custom service to similar minded farmers invested in the way their livestock is processed.

Postcode Blues
Sharing a postcode with a densely populated urban centre almost 200km away is a cause of frustration for the residents of one rural region in Queensland. Farmers find it inhibits their ability to attract necessary backpacker workers, while other residents say it impacts on everything from increased insurance premiums to accessing government services.
