Here's a few snippets.....
March 8th...."Enough moisture to start sowing the oats - we're using the disc drill to minimize soil disturbance & maximize moisture retention. Follow up rains will be the key from here."
March 10th...."2pm Today" drafting, scanning & drenching cattle to make the trip down to Victoria where we have a good supply of dry feed"
March 12th ....""2pm Today" The weaners have made it out of the yards to the BIG paddock. Finding shade in the heat of the day - it is so dry here even big established trees like this are dying."
March 18th...."2pm Today" taking a draft of the youngest joined heifers out to their own paddock for a little extra TLC thru to calving."
March 22nd...."2pm Today" Riverslea Helena (P) won her age class & went on to be Champion Junior & Grand Champion female. Worst luck to Howzat (PS) who missed his chance to take out 3 grand champions from 3 starts when he hurt himself before judging."
For the first of what we hope to be many "2pm today" posts....On Facebook
Checking the weaners. Weaned 3 months early due to the drought - but going great guns on twice daily feeds of lucerne hay, straw and milk replacer pellets.
