COONABARABRAN , NEW SOUTH WALES - JUNE 19:  An aerial view of the cattle feeding operation on the property 'Toorawandi' owned by Coonabrabran farmer Ambrose Doolan and his wife Lisa.  Both the couples children, Brett and Emily have returned home to work on the farm during the drought. The name of the property translates to 'rows of standing stones', which is presently an apt description of the bare dirt and stones that stretch as far as the can see.  The New South Wales State government recently approved an emergency drought relief package of A$600m, of which at least A$250m is allocated for low interest loans to assist eligible farm businesses to recover. The package has been welcomed, though in the words of a local farmer {quote}it barely touches the sides{quote}. Now with the real prospect of a dry El-Nino weather pattern hitting the state in Spring, the longer term outlook for rain here is dire. June 19, 2018 in Coonabarabran, Australia.
