Meat & Livestock Australia has claimed responsibility for the mysterious crop -circle in the Hunter Valley as part of its latest campaign to promote beef in winter.
The artwork first appeared on Saturday and spokesperson of Meat & Livestock Australia Lachlan Bowtell has revealed it was created by UK crop circle artist Julian Richardson to represent the position of the planets at the exact moment of our winter solstice.
However the sun has an odd replacement…
“This activity is part of our newly launched Beef Oracle campaign,” Bowtell said.
“The Beef Oracle has been designed to educate and inspire Australians to cook more beef meals in winter. He knows what cuts to choose, what ingredients you require and the meals you crave.
“This crop circle was designed to introduce the Beef Oracle, positioned in the centre of the design. His message, communicated through this crop circle, is for all Australians to make sure they cook and enjoy a hearty beef winter meal to celebrate the longest night of the year – and to consult the oracle if you need help with going about it.”
THE work of extraterrestrials or an Australian beef marketing and research team?
A 150-metre by 125-metre crop circle spotted in an oat crop paddock had those in Scone talking in hushed whispers this week.
Why were aliens encouraging the consumption of beef? Was it anything to do with their imminent arrival on earth? Who was this almighty beef oracle? Would he be a vengeful or forgiving leader?
Then, as fast as it mysteriously appeared, the source and meaning behind the crop circle was revealed. Meat & Livestock Australia said the puzzling planetary artwork was created by professional UK crop circle artist Julian Richardson as part of the cattle marketing and research company’s latest campaign to promote beef in winter.
The design represents the position of the planets at the exact moment of our winter solstice – the longest night of the year – but with a mysterious replacement for the sun. ‘‘This crop circle was designed to introduce the beef oracle, positioned in the centre of the design,’’ Meat and Livestock spokesman Lachlan Bowtell said.
The circle’s message is for all Australians to make sure they cook and enjoy a hearty beef winter meal to celebrate the longest night of the year, he said.
