Al Jackson - This is a difficult question to answer. HC has been my life for the past 12 years.
If I could wind back the clock I’d like to think I might have studied ag related subjects in school. Gone on to study wool classing or agronomy (or won a scholarship to travel overseas!).
I would have put my hand up to learn about machines and how things grow. How we can do things better and incorporate technology into farming practices to get the most out of man and machine.
I would live on the land with my family, raising our girls away from the city lights and fumes.
I would wake up at dawn and run in the fresh air, drive to work along dusty unsealed roads and after a full day’s work I would sit back and reflect on how lucky we are to live in this great country.
