Centre-pivot irrigation leading pastoral industry attempts to drought-proof WA’s north

Pardoo Station, which has 20 centre pivots and plans to put in at least 12 more, sits above an artesian aquifer.

The first lot of Pardoo Beef Corporation-born pure-blood Wagyu have already gone to a feedlot in the South West, [and] there will be increasing numbers of those leaving the pivots. We would need another allocation to expand, so it’s not really endless and it’s quite controlled and monitored by the Government.https://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2019-11-17/wa-pastoralists-attempt-to-drought-proof-using-centre-pivots/11663698
