    Moree shire just collected its millionth drum muster container! (most cockys recycle them)
    This doesnt include shuttle drums which are the container of choice for broadacre chemicals!!
    Roundup is probably on the safer end of the legal chemical spectrum
    Health statistics should be readily available ;however in practicethe health beaurocracys make it difficult to collect data!!
