I have removed the Livestock and Real Estate categories. These are not justified. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 18:59, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Photo of Station[edit]

The picture evidently shows a farm, since there is a traffic sign visiable. The stations i have been on are a long way from the front gate, and you would typically not see such things near the station house. (I've lived on both...)

Also, it looks something like a dairy farm to me. --Wendy.krieger (talk) 08:49, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

I took the photo and this is a large remote cattle station in NSW, too far away from anywhere to be a dairy.Cgoodwin (talk) 23:27, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Jackaroo and jillaroo[edit]

Jackaroo (trainee) and Jillaroo (trainee) are redirects that currently link here. However, Jackaroo (trainee) probably should be an article, with Jillaroo (trainee) a redirect to that article. Both redirects now have incoming links; formerly they were piped to Stockman. (talk) 17:21, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Silly to make a tiny article. Expand sections in existing articles until they are big enough to warrant their own. Too many stubs. Montanabw(talk) 20:20, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Montanabw. There are other more common workers that are performing the same duties in OZ.Cgoodwin (talk) 21:56, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
