Clyde Murray was a dairy farmer for nearly 40 years. In 2000 the dairy industry in Australia was deregulated, having an enormous impact on dairy farmers nationally. During this period there was also a severe drought, forcing farmers to buy in food to keep their cattle alive. These combined circumstances forced Clyde to sell off his cattle, loosing his livelihood. Financially deadlocked and with skills specific to a now dying industry there was nothing for Clyde to do but retire. For the past 12 years The Murray's property has been a rusting museum to the dairy industry, left untouched since the day they shut up shop.
