IN 2014, Stock & Land celebrates 100 years, and to mark this momentous occasion we have many centenary events and initiatives planned for the coming 12 months.
Each week we'll be looking back through our archives to see how farming and the paper has changed - or not changed as the case may be.
Thanks goes to our centenary sponsors:
- Australian Wool Innovation
- Marcus Oldham
- NAB Agribusiness
- PFG Deutz-Fahr
- Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria
- Suncorp Bank
Got some Stock & Land history you'd like to share with us?
Looking back to '98
WEANER steers were making just $338 back in in January 1998 and wool's price dive was big news.
Looking back to '84
OUR front page focused on possible locations of the new Newmarket saleyards after it was decided to close the central location to make way for a housing development.
Looking back to '72
BACK in '72 the Australian sheep industry was on a major destocking spree.
Looking back to '56
LEVIES for beef exports to the UK and tax rulings dominated our front page on January 11, 1956.
Looking back to '64
LOOKING back half a century to January 8, 1964, photos and illustrations were appearing with greater regularity in the pages of Stock & Land.
