The Cattle Drive

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 1 June 2012

For three generations, Jack Rawlinson's family has run a back country farm in Taranaki. Over the years, he has embraced many of farming's mod cons but there's one tradition he won't give up. When it comes time to move 250 cattle from his farm at Matau to Statford 54kms away, Jack likes to do things the old fashioned way. He saddles up and moves the stock along the road on an old fashioned cattle drive.
