With some scattered and good falls of rain over the past week, the local farmers are now in full swing preparing for the sowing season ahead. If you are thinking of upgrading your machinery to avoid breakdowns when the pressure is on, the local firm at McClintocks is desperately looking for trades. If you are thinking that now is the time to trade in your machinery, they have buyers ready to act.
With the extended dry season from January, this has given local farmers the opportunity to plan for this sowing season so that when the good rains finally arrive they will be prepared. If you also need your machinery services or are looking for parts then call in and see Richard and the boys at McClintocks in Canowindra.
With local markets being closed on Monday due to Easter and with the recent rains, the cattle markets on Monday at Forbes were up slightly on the previous week and if this trend continues this should see a good result for the Carcoar (CTLX) markets on Tuesday, just after Easter. You still have time to think about your cattle sales for that week, so call Steve Mooney on 0428 683
152 or Ben Emms on 0428 639 381 at Ray White Rural to book your stock in at the
local cattle or sheep sales the week after Easter at Carcoar.
