HATFIELD, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEBRUARY 9: John Butler feeds his sheep February 9, 2008 in Hatfield New South Wales, Australia. Normally farmers in this region do not need to hand feed their livestock hay and instead rely on the rain to grow natural grazing land. However, the longterm drought has forced Butler and many other farmers to buy feed, costing about $20,000 Australian (about $13,000 U.S.) for just three months, a practice that is not sustainable. The Murray-Darling Basin of Australia has been plagued with severe drought since the late 1990's and many growers and policy makers are being forced to work on implementing more efficient irrigation systems.
