Kate is a farmer in outback NSW. She loves farming and she loves her land.
Her cattle wander the paddocks in peace, in view of the Warrumbungles.
"Anything that’s had a happy life is good. One bad day and that’s the day they’re on the truck."
At the moment, keeping the cattle alive is hard.
Kate describes the most extensive drought she has seen in 40 years in Coonabarabran. Even the native trees have not survived.
Among dust storms and dirt, Kate often lacks the water to even wash her clothes.
