This is a video about the mixed farming operations of Boonderoo Pastoral Company in South Australia. The farm is introduced by owner Lachie Seears who describes its size, family history and how region's Mediterranean climate allows him to diversify across a range of valuable commodities including Angus cattle, cross-breed ewes and lambs, wheat, broad beans, barley, canola and carrot seeds. Explaining how the farm is run as a system with crops on the heavy black soil and sheep and cattle grazing in areas with shelter trees, he discusses the advantages of these commodities. Sustainability is seen as the key for profitable farming for future generations and Seears comments on the strategic tree-planting being undertaken, the technologies being used for harvesting crops and monitoring irrigation, and his employment of young people. The video lasts 5:02 min and visuals of the farm provide background for the commentary.
