Anna Creek Station in South Australia's far north has reduced its stock levels from 16,000 head to 4,000 since late last year.

Manager Randall Crozier says most of the cattle have been sold or sent to feedlots.

"We've been destocking pretty well since November last year and we're pretty well in full swing now we're down," he said.

"We're down to approximately less than a quarter of our stocking rate at the moment and if it doesn't rain soon, there'll be even less than that.
