artifact description
An inadequate distribution of watering points in our pastoral lands, particularly in the saltbush/bluebush pasture, has caused localisized land degradation close to waters and reduced animal productivity (particularly in stressful times). From experimentation and observation, some generalised recommendations for water supply distribution in pastoral areas can be made.
