The Cattle Empire
Nothing says Australia quite like our outback and you can find a little of the outback in every state of mainland Australia. The open spaces that seem to stretch on forever tell the story of the exploration and development of our red brown land and reflect Australia’s pioneering spirit and unique identity and nowhere is this more evident than in the livestock industry, especially on the vast cattle stations that cover much of the outback. Australian cattle stations are often mentioned in the same breath as the Australian outback, here cattle kings built their empires encompassing some of the toughest and dry country Australia has to offer. In this episode we’re going to consider the ultimate cattle empire and discover how it affects each of us.
