We have 700 steers on the stock-route 30km south of Hughenden on the Winton road. My husband has been camping out with the cattle since Christmas Eve with our 15 year old son assisting him. Our son starts back at boarding school next week and I (George’s wife) am pumping water on our breeder property up in the Etheridge shire.
So, we really urgently need one able person to assist for 2 to 4 weeks (depending on when it rains) to help tail the cattle out every day and put them back into a holding paddock at night. The work is not difficult (motorbike) but it is hot and requires lots of patience (I take a book!) to sit with the cattle all day.
We can provide a swag and meals but it is basic camping, with genset for fridge etc
