NiE Agriculture on Show

When you take a spoonful of food from your plate or slip on your favourite shirt, do you ever wonder how it got to be there? Probably not. You are simply satisfying your hunger or just getting dressed. Most of us don't think about what has gone on between the paddock and the retail outlets where we purchase the products which eventually end up in our homes. Do we really appreciate what it takes to keep us all fed, clothed and sheltered? Stop and think about how agriculture affects your life and learn more about the amazing work Australian farmers do.
