THE relationship between the family farm and corporate businesses played out in the centre of Adelaide yesterday.

The SA branch of the United Nations Association of Australia teamed up with renowned installation artist Andrew Baines - famed for his interactive art displays such as the popular Holstein cows on the beach - to mark the International Year of Family Farming.

The display had 30 Texel sheep, supplied by the Illawon, Kiwi and Birangang studs at Parawa, that were spray painted with food dye and led around a ring in Victoria Square by people in black suits and blue ties.

Mr Baines said the sheep represented the family farm while those in the black suits symbolised the corporate side of the equation.

The association's vice president Lidia Moretti said they had wanted to create a display that would celebrate local farms.
