The Last Charge
The spectacular charge by Australian Light Horse Regiments at Beersheba 100 years ago is the stuff of legend. While the brave deeds of both horse and man are now immortalised in Australia's history, the legacy of one Hunter Valley family also lives on. The memory of their valiant young men - carried into the charge by horses they had raised themselves - is not forgotten.
Improved land care and animal welfare, reduced wool prickle factor and the ability for regional businesses to take value-added products to the world are some of the ways technology is helping to reshape today's wool industry.
