How many acres ?
Re: How many acres ?
An interesting one BP.

As I am not a farmer, I will list a friend of mine's farm, at Perth, where I have taken alot of my photos.

1430 Ha (3533 Ac), spread across 3 properties.

8000 Sheep (mostly Merino, for wool production + some ewes are mated to British breed rams for prime lamb production),

300 Cattle (mostly Angus),

Cropping; poppies, process peas, grass seed, wheat, barley, lucerne (grazing & hay / silage), forage rape, forage oats. Some under irrigation, some dryland.

Exact acreage of all crops I don't know. 50ha is used for Wheat, 40 for potatoes and the remaining ha's are used for beet and onions.
