00:00 - 00:03The cattle have all been moved to the Eastern paddock, per the rotation schedule.
00:04 - 00:05Whilst driving them there,
00:05 - 00:07large mobs of kangaroos were seen leaving the area.
00:08 - 00:12Kangaroo and wombat poo were found in the best areas
00:12 - 00:15And the grass trimmed short and crushed by their daytime sleeping schedule.
00:17 - 00:19These kangaroos,
00:19 - 00:21shoot them all when they return.
00:24 - 00:26Mr Grazier...
00:27 - 00:28Kangaroos...
00:31 - 00:33Kangaroos are a protected species.
00:34 - 00:36It is prohibited to shoot them.
00:53 - 00:58Anyone that did not grow up in the country, leave the room.
01:13 - 01:15These animals are a pest!
01:15 - 01:17They destroy my fences!
01:18 - 01:23They're eating out my paddocks!
01:25 - 01:28This is Parks fucking problem!
01:29 - 01:31There's so many out there,
01:31 - 01:34they starve and they have to shoot them all anyway!
01:34 - 01:37They think we can just fence them out,
01:37 - 01:40but they just push under or hang themselves on the top wire!
01:40 - 01:42Mr Grazier, they are on our coat of arms and an emblem of our nation!
01:42 - 01:46Just ONE. Not 200 million!
01:46 - 01:48Mr Grazier we can apply for tags and have them removed!
01:48 - 01:52They only issue a few hundred tags a year!
01:53 - 01:54We have over 2000!
01:56 - 01:57Never mind the traffic hazard
01:57 - 02:00Or the hobby farmers that breed them in their dormant paddocks.
02:00 - 02:03"We'll just sell kangaroo meat, it's so tasty and lean."
02:04 - 02:08Nobody fucking likes it! Even the Russians stopped importing it.
02:08 - 02:13I'm trying to run a beef farm here, but it feels like a wildlife retreat.
02:14 - 02:16They line the roads when I drive home at night.
02:17 - 02:21I've never seen roos so fucking big. I saw one with paws bigger than my own hands!
02:27 - 02:29And the trade agreement had such potential.
02:30 - 02:34The stock prices are so high, but I can't get enough feed.
02:34 - 02:36And we're heading back into a drought.
02:41 - 02:42I'll just sell to the Chinese.
02:43 - 02:47And let them deal with these tasteless varmints.
02:48 - 02:53They can dig the whole place up looking for rare-earth minerals.
02:54 - 02:56I don't think they'd have to look hard.
02:56 - 02:59This place would be a rock farm without the effort I poured into it.
03:00 - 03:02Driving around spreading seed and super all day.
03:04 - 03:07Lean beef is better for you, and these are the leanest.
03:14 - 03:16I saw pig diggings around the dams.
03:19 - 03:23And a herd of deer came through the backyard.
03:25 - 03:26The dog didn't even bark.
03:31 - 03:33We're not a farmer-friendly nation.
03:40 - 03:46You'd think a Western country with this much land, would have good agriculture policies!
03:46 - 03:49But the urban population just votes in its own interests.
03:53 - 03:56How are the house prices in Sydney?
