The first two pictures show the family farm before the last of the cows were moved to my cousin's new farm. The remaining photos are of the farm in late 2010 without cows and before the final hand over to the new owners. Between the time of the sale and the hand over, rain had fallen and grass had grown long without cows to keep it low. The farm has now been turned over to beef cattle. They require less water. My cousin's new farm has access to irrigation and has greater protection from future drought.
