SHEEP FARM IN AUSTRALIA
Retaining nutrients is very important and our sheep farm, Mount Hesse, is tested regularly to ensure optimal growth of plants and crops, providing intensive grazing for Merino sheep.
Südwolle group monitor the ground with soil tests so that macro elements such as There are varying soil types that store nutrients and water in different ways.
Soil science is an important aspect of farming on Mount Hesse, phosphorous, sulphur, potassium and nitrogen are maintained in the grounds and do not dispose of the subsurface water system or runoff into streams.
The farm is fenced to classify land and the ground is tested regularly so that they get optimum growth from their crops and plants.
The western district of Victoria is known for its acidic volcanic territory so they have made every effort to preserve their property by applying lime to lift the pH of their soils to allow crops to thrive in this once difficult environment.
The farm is on a volcanic plain, therefore, some Stones were relocated so that the pastures could be optimized and crops planted with the greatest Chance to succeed Prior to this a check is made to determine that there are no native animals that will be disturbed and areas are set aside for their use.
Trees are planted in these piles of stone which provide shade and shelter for the sheep and a home for the many birds, insects and small animals found on the property.

COMPANY OBJECTIVES 2019/2020
As a supplier for wool, a niche market product, Sudwolle constantly strives to make their products more valuable. Not because of the Euro or Dollar monetary worth, but because of reasons why to buy their products – on a functional, objective Niche markets have different rules compared to mass markets, so shouldn’t we appreciate a highly valuable material, which is not comparable or even strictly emotional level to less valued synthetic fibres or cotton?
Everyone in the industry is constantly talking about sustainability – but what does ‘sustainable‘ really mean? Nowadays, every day-to-day action is ‘sustainable‘. This term has been generalized over the past
few years and used in many contexts.
Too many to be actually meaningful anymore? They think each and every one of us should take a step back and ask:
How can I apply the concept of ecological awareness to my daily business?
How can I think out of the box and make ‘sustainability‘ a business model, not just a term? What would be my personal, more practical term for what I do when I act responsibly?
Goal 12 wants to make us think twice about the things we use, the waste we create, and how that impacts the planet. Changing our behaviour towards more sustainable actions such as recycling really makes a difference when everyone -that includes individuals, companies, government - contributes.
