Mateship crucial in droughtVirginia Tapp, Friday July 5, 2013 - 12:16 EST
Queensland graziers are relying on one another to cope with the drought, which now covers 40 percent of the state.
Debbie Viney, from Janeville station near Hughenden, has offloaded cattle to neighbouring properties to keep them alive.
She says the generosity of others is crucial in times of hardship.
"We were lucky enough to have someone who was kind enough to take a few head, so that's all we can keep doing, keep hoping there's someone else out there who's kind enough to help you out.
"You're relying on goodwill well and truly, even down to just ordinary bills that you pay everyday, but the worst part is they're all in the same boat."
