So for all this time we can assume they haven't a clue about what they're doing?

Federal Government funds guide to help Indigenous cattle stations
« Reply #1 on: April 13, 2012, 04:49:44 PM »
The Federal Government will provide half a million dollars to develop a new resource tool to support Indigenous pastoral operations in northern Australia.

Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig made the announcement on Auvergne Station in the Northern Territory, 300 kilometres south-west of Katherine.

He says the money will be used to develop a guide about the skills needed to run a cattle operation, from how to balance the books to keeping a massive herd of cattle healthy.

"In pastoral industries it's hard work," Mr Ludwig said.

"It's even harder if you don't have the skill set or you've never been working on a pastoral company or you haven't had the opportunity of working with management.

"So what we want to do is provide the guide to assist a step by step entry into this industry."
