Using the CliMate App, you can look at a local station’s weather over the past 8 months. The Molong station shows that the past 8 months of rainfall is in the lowest 3%, while Manildra 28%, Cudal 31%, Canowindra 37% all show a considerably brighter story, it may not be the case from farm to farm.
There is no point telling producers that the colour black is dark in colour. We all know it is very dry!
The Agricultural advisory staff of Central Tablelands Local Land Services are keen to provide practical tips on surviving this dry period and thriving out the other side. The Cudal Bowling Club will be the venue for the Seasonal Conditions Meeting on Friday afternoon 6th April from 3pm till 5pm.
Brett Littler, Senior Land Services Officer Livestock will be talking about how livestock producers can get the most out of the particular feed available for supplementary or production feeding. Brett will also discuss early weaning and livestock selling strategies that could enhance profitability.
Dr Amy Masters, Central Tablelands Local Land Services District Veterinarian will talk animal health issues in the dry and how to prevent livestock health issues when we get the break in season. Phil Cranney will be talking about different fodder options for when it rains and how to maintain pasture health through this very dry period.
