Sheep eat distributed feed in barren paddocks on farmer Stephen Rolfe's property near the Southern Tablelands town of Cooma July 24, 2004. Rolfe's property of over 4,000 acres remains in the grip of yet another dry year after being decimated in 2002 by Australia's worst drought in a century. Australian farmers face a future climate that is drier, with more extremes of droughts and floods, and being able to adapt swiftly will be the key to the industry's survival, a senior Australian scientist has reported.
