Willie and her Dutch migrant husband, John Posma, 31, have two Australian-born children: Margriet, and Rienout, 18 months. The family live on the Queensland Government Experimental farm at Kairi, where John is a farm hand. He says that in another two years he should have saved enough to start his own farm. John was formerly an office worker in Amsterdam. Margriet Posma steadies a bucket as her favourite calf gets a drink of milk.
