Eudunda: Paul Schutz
Show Notes

“Further east of here there were Mallee trees dying. When you’ve got Mallee trees dying, you know it’s damn dry.” Paul Schutz

Paul Schutz is a sheep producer from Point Pass near Eudunda in South Australia’s mid north.

His family leases and owns 4000 hectares of mixed cropping country from Neales Flat to the south and Booborowie to the north.

He’s one of six siblings; Paul and his three brothers help manage the properties with their father while also seeking off-farm work to pay the bills.

The past four years have been the driest his family has ever experienced, but off-farm income, leasing property and containment feeding has got them through so far.
