I thought thats what dung beetles do...
for free!! ...
Profit margin not mindless production...
At least its not blasting away with synthetic fertilisers and nutrients out of a bottle.
Its the same story across all of Australia.
I was unaware of how forward thinking Mexico was to allow such healthy environmental practices. Compaction and weeds are rubbish excuses. The days of the green revolution that created the American dust bowl are hopefully long over. The worry is Big Chemical co will interject as without stock the need for much increased fertiliser and weed poison will rapidly increase. Work with nature which involves managed animals.
I think you are on to it Qlander. Shepherds probably are a good concept to consider if there is the scale involved with the operation. Capital investment initially would be bold but as someone else mentioned not unproved, ie Beetaloo. I agree the Kangaroos would be a challenge. As for the habits of roos, I suggest that their behaviour and numbers has been so skewed by the un natural influence with no predators, absence of Dingos. I don't see anything impossible, just a spectacular shift in thinking and a mighty task in implementing. Bon Voyage!!
