I don't think the farmers could have cared less at this stage.  The wheat
crops are a write-off, having been down-graded from prime hard to feed
grade, at best.  There are many crops that just aren't worth getting the
headers onto.  This happened even before the flooding as the on-going rain
meant that they couldn't be harvested and thus the wheat sprouted in the
seed head.

Mind you, this probably means that the wheat is probably superb feed for the
said Emus.  In better times the farmers might not have been impressed.
Anyone out there any idea of how much damage 40 Emus can do.  Hundreds might
not be good news but what about smaller numbers?
