Hi everyone, Brett Wheaton here. I farm in the North West Wimmera, in the Nhill area on approximately 8500ha in total. We have 5000ha in the Telopea Downs area which has sandy to Mallee clay soils which we run our stock on and the rest is full rotation cropping with heavy red bulloak soil to black self-mulching Wimmera ground. We sow vetch, canola, beans, lentils, wheat and barley; and have an average rainfall of 350ish mm a year – though it is never the same year on year. Our farm business is a family run show, with my brother Dean and I, and our four kids all in the business.
