There's nothing humble about the earthworm

Summary

Advertisement about the introduction and value of Esinia Foeteda, more commonly known as the European earthworm. Roger and Judith Pearson operate the Bundaleer Worm Farm, initially breeding the worms for fish bait, but soon realising a greater potential ,as earth worms have a healthy taste for sheep and cattle dung, which is converted into fertiliser. Mr Pearson said that the earth worms have a definite place in farm ecology.

This article contains two images: a hand holding some European earthworms; and Roger Pearson displaying one of his fertiliser tubs.
