Ranching Down Under

Hello North Texas! Welcome to Ranching Down Under. I was so excited when I was approached by NTFR to write a monthly column
about life inrRural Australia. I grew up in the town of Narrabri with a population of 7,500. Narrabri is known for being the center of agriculture in the heart of North Western New South Wales, Australia. The rich black soil plains along with abundance of underground water from the great Artesian Basin and the Namoi valley water shed, which flows into the Namoi River, makes this region ideal for producing crops such as cotton, wheat, barley, oilseeds and a variety of other crops from peanuts to grapes. Cattle and sheep are also an integral part of agriculture production in this area.
