Action 177

Adaptation Action Specific Details: 
Use living fences to feed and provide moisture-filled leaves for bullocks during dry times.

E.g. at Klem Hill (kaltuk, has trialed in his farm), the farmer planted Purao trees along the fence and didn’t cut back the leaves. During a prolonged dry spell the bullock ate the leaves to get water. When the Steers from the ‘dry’ pasture were taken to the abattoir, they were almost same weight as bullock from other farms that had had access to regular water supply. Used on Santo w/ a climbing big leaf heavily variegated vine and also the Big Leaf Meremia vine.
