Documenting drought's impact on dairying

· Drought

Dairy farming has a 160-year history in the area, but there is no guarantee that Milton's dairy farms will survive this drought.

On Thursday, 20 September 2018, Rob participated in a oral history interview conducted the State Library of NSW (Mitchell Library) as part of its efforts to document the social histories of regional NSW.

The interview covered topics like the history of the Miller family, intergenerational change, changes in farming methods and techniques, the role of farming in the local community, and future expectations of farming in 50-100 years.

Rob's recorded oral history will be available soon on the State Library of NSW website.
