John and Robyn produce ultrafine wool on ‘Talaheni’, a 245-hectare property in Yass Valley. When they brought the property about 30 years ago, it was run-down and suffering from severe dryland
salinity, soil acidity and associated vegetation decline. They have worked steadily since to overcome the problems and ultimately achieve increased production and significant environmental benefits. Their approach has been well document and reported. Their success is fullyacknowledged in many places. The following list provides just a taste.
