A sheep grazier in Western Queensland says going organic has dramatically reduced running costs on her property.
Maree King from Westfield station, south of Longreach has never had to supplement feed her Dorper sheep, even though the current dry spell is said to have been one of the worst on record.
She believes it could be because of the Dorper's South African heritage.
"They were bred to thrive in a semi arid environment, so they just do so well here and we don't have to feed."
