Jerilderie, NSW, February 2021
Erica: We came through Avalon, New South Wales and we shifted down to Carrathool nearly three years ago to work on a station. We had our own stock before the drought sort of got real bad. During the drought, we sold 98 heads of cattle, about 350 heads of sheep and there was a few Dorper goats as well. And yeah, we've just had to move from home for a bit of work.
Barry: I was driving an excavator pulling out box thorns for about four months, and I'm not a machine operator, I'm a stockman. There was just no work back there because of the drought.
