The overcast day gave Jorn a chance to slowly burn out the grasses of an area that will be regenerated. The thickness of the thatch meant that is could not be ripped and mounded without being burnt first.

Two farmers fire trucks were on standby, shovels and two ways just in case the day did not go as planned.

Fire is taken very seriously down here, all the farmers look out and support each each other.
