1. 50 millimetres of rain

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, the only sound was rain giving the paddocks a good douse.

2. A new water trough

One that’s guaranteed not to block on the first 40 degree day.

3. Bale-twine organiser

Something to store all of those handy bits for the frequent repair jobs on the farm.

4. Mobile phone reception

Forget about getting the latest mobile phone, just guarantee one that doesn’t drop out mid-conversation.

5. Smart sheep

The perfect ‘smart’ device.

6. New wire strainers

Ones that don’t let go the minute you turn your back on them.

7. A reverse camera

To alert a farmer of an impending charge from a rogue ram.

8. Auto shower and bath cut off timer

For those visitors who don’t know what having a water tank in summer means.

9. Electric fence wire that glows when live

Particularly useful for those taking a paddock bathroom break.

10. An autonomous tractor

So farmers can just sit back and drink a beer on the porch.

11. A tropical holiday

But no rain here, please.
