July Grass Farmers: When in Drought...

July 2018 by Karen Budds

With much of eastern Australia experiencing drought, in this issue, we bring you the inspiring story of grass farmer Karen Budds, who together with her partner, Scott Hug, has been able to turn the negative of a situation that we cannot control into a positive action plan that will see them, their land and their horses weather this difficult time. 

This is Karen’s story

My partner, Scott Hug, and I live on the outskirts of the small village of Kootingal, east of Tamworth, New South Wales. Our property consists of five acres, with three and a half acres of undulating paddock space for our three horses.
