2013 $6 booklet containing 10x60c stamps wit a 1 Koala reprint symbol.

These stamps are the second issue of the current 'Farming Australia' series. The four new stamps feature beed farming, citrus growing, sugar production and the wool industry.

Beef cattle are one of Australia's major industries, farmed across much of Australia, with over 23 million animals. The cattle represented on the stamp are Droughtmaster, a Brahman cattle cross developed in Australia for dry, harsh conditions, particularly in the north of the country.

Most of the citrus fruit produced every year in Australia is oranges. The main orange varieties are Navels and Valencias. Mandarins, lemons, limes and grapefruit account for the remaining citrus production.

Australia is the third largest raw sugar producer in the world. Eighty per cent of the country's sugar is exported, making the industry the seventh largest agricultural exporter in Australia.

Australia is the world's leading producer of wool, accounting for around 24 per cent of global wool production. Australia is also the world's leading wool exporter. The Australian sheep type is overwhelmingly Merino, which produces finer wool than other breeds suitable for the manufacture of high-quality garments.
