Our property is on the undulating saddle of the Burnett and Kolan rivers consisting of block self mulching soil. Lends itself to producing very good heavy crops with the help of a good water supply from the Bundaberg Irrigation Scheme as well as 2 good bore supplies.

Hard to believe that we went through the worst drought on our property ever to green grass and fat cattle. Lucky my cattle are quick to respond to good conditions and have produced 6 calves in the last 2mths.
I fear that if we font get followup rain very soon we will be back where we were feeding our cows on the road. The weather is cooling off and grass will not have much growth left in it. A 300ac paddock we had locked off since July last year only grew grass from seed as all the established grass died in Feb has now come up with pasture die back. This paddock was going to be our winter paddock.
I am so glad the road side has come back with a fresh new feed load.

29ml of beautiful rain. Hope to get water in my dams and green grass in my paddocks

Well we have been on the road since end August. Have had very little rain. Today the cows were waiting at the bus stop for a bus to take them to greener pastures.
Only problem we missed the bus.

It was lovely to watch the weather to see some rain relief around Emerald to coast. I could only watch the clouds pass by with nasty winds but today we had a light rain fall. Hoping for more.

People may call me mad,emotional stupid but I brought my cattle to a new paddock and noticed 1 cow looking rough.
I thought it may be mineral deficiency as she had a young calf in toe. She just seemed to go down hill till she finally stayed down.
I was giving feed water and thought I was on the way up.
This morning as I was putting lick out I noticed the rest of the herd mobbing my cow which I thought a bit strange and knowing the social interaction of my herd I was worried. Unfortunately my girl died in front of me when I took her feed.
Laugh if you want but a tear ran down her face and that was it.

When I did my Bio Security we had a section on socializing our cattle
and I had a chuckle at the time but after this morning episode I had to change my mind

Inspected my weaned heifers today. Very happy with their progress. Coming along nicely.

“CLIMATE CHANGE"
During the 7 year period from 1896 to 1903, before the vast land clearing, Industrial Revolution, before the first world war, and the second world war, before the millions of cars were on the road and the vast amount of coal mining to date, and the Green Party, I was looking at this period and here are some of the facts from the period.
. Rainfall for this period was 46% below the previous wet period
.Federation Drought, Heatwaves, Bush Fires and Dust storms, associated with 40% livestock losses in Queensland.
.Livestock numbers in Queensland reduced from 6.5 million to 2.5.million (cattle), and from 19 million to 7 million ( sheep).
.Western New South Wales, impacted by soil erosion, and woody w**d infestation (1898-1899).
.Properties in the Western New South Wales were abandoned with collapse in carrying capacity, resulting in the Royal Commission investigating financial stress in the Western Division.
.Sir Sydney Kidman acquired properties, and nearly lost all by 1901, due to severity and wide spread nature of this drought.
.Tropical Cyclone Mahina struck Bathurst Bay ( Cape York) on the 4th March 1899, the surrounding region suffered a massive storm surge from the category 5 system, killing over 400 people - the largest death toll of any national disaster in Australian History.
Reports recorded that grass was ripped from the ground on the islands offshore and that fish and dolphins were left in trees,15 metres above sea level
This all happened before the new catch cry of "GLOBAL WARMING", and "CATASTROPHIC".
The words they use now to frighten the public.
Puppet Palaszczuk should look back at previous records to see what has happened in years gone by, and order an enquiry into the recent fires in National Parks, she would then find it is the incompetence of National Parks management. Instead of making wild statements, GLOBAL WARMING.!

I sympathise with the devastation that farmers and public have endured over the past few years. Is this a matter of history repeating it's self.

So happy to have sold my upcoming sale bulls for 2019.
It still remains very dry here in Gin Gin with a chance of some showers this week. Would be great to see 75ml of steady set in rain. Then another lot of the same.

I would like to thank Arthur Di**le on his purchase of Brooklyn Jasper, Landmark and Len Gibbs for preparing Jagger .

Lot 567, Lot569 will not be at FAB.

As a new exhibitor to the sale ring I have made a hard decision to sell these 2 bulls privately. If anybody was interested ph 0405451916 for information.
They are quiet and easy doing cattle with good bloodlines Wingfield, Talgai, Swan and Minlowcowie.

DROUGHT MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES.
Many producers have had to make important, and sometimes drastic, decisions on how best to manage their herds in difficult times.
Brooklyn Droughtmasters from Gin Gin Q have thought “outside the fence” and have been grazing cattle on the road bordering their properties since the end of August.
After gaining a permit, the Honors graze their 52 cows and 6 calves along the road for 2 to 3 hrs a day and supplement their cattle with a wet lick.
What drought management strategies have you been using to see your operation and property through drought?
