    OK, this forum is only here occasionally so I hope this works...
    A System diagram is basically like a spider diagram of your property. Write the name of your property in the middle, and draw off it every aspect in your property (eg, soil, livestock, pests, plants etc) Branch off from these eg from pests comes animals and plants. From that comes rabbits, foxes, briars or whatever. Try to link everything together. Eg, off soild you will have the crops or pasture you grow on that soil type and where it is (eg, black soil in valleys- improved pasture) Then tie this into what you put on there eg, black soil- improved pasture- fattening lambs. Eventually the whole thing is tied in together. The most important thing is to put down EVERYTHING then try to tie it together. Eg, from livestock you may have lambs, then this is tied onto improved pasture. Also coming off them will be outputs such as shearers, mulesing contractors, drench, vaccine etc.
    It is really hard to explain, but I hope you get the idea. If you want I can email you a copy which might make it easier so just say the word.
