Fraser Coast Local Ewan Rockemer was featured in this series. The series highlighted that Ewan has lived and breathed farming his whole life. “It is instilled in me, the dirt is not only ingrained in my hands but it runs in my blood. It’s not just a way of life; it’s my livelihood, it’s who I am”
State Library of Queensland discovered Ewan is a 23 year old, 5th generation cattle farmer from Brooweena, South East Queensland who is passionate about the cattle he breeds and cares for and enjoys the challenge of constantly improving and innovating new farming practices to remain sustainable and viable for generations to come.
