My name is William Farrer and I represent Golden soil, wealth for toil
because through my experimentation with many wheat types, I came up with the
Federation variety of wheat. It was strong and well suited to Australias

Federation wheat and explaining to another farmer why this type of wheat he
has created is so much better than other kinds.
