With some significant falls of rain over the Canowindra district during the past two months it has given the area a great start to Autumn.
The recent rain saw farmers quick to be on the paddocks to begin sowing or begin preparation for the year with the soil finally having a bit of moisture in it after three dry years.
Crops such as oats, winter wheat and canola are being sown now or are already up and out of the ground which is great to see.
Pastures have also made a remarkable comeback after the long dry drought conditions, and with the pasture have come the weeds too.
Due to very high seasonal demand and the COVID-19 pandemic delaying shipping worldwide, fertiliser, chemicals and seed are all in short supply, so it pays to order ahead.
With cattle and sheep now heading onto lush, fast growing pastures and fodder crops be sure to monitor for bloat, scours and staggers. To minimise these conditions it is a great time to put out lick blocks for cattle and sheep.
It will be good to see some more rainfall over the next few weeks to keep the momentum going.
