The Band continues to play for the College Agricultural scholarship teams. In the past fortnight, students have taken sheep and cattle to both the Sunbury and Royal Geelong Shows with outstanding results. A very good follow up to the success at the Melbourne show.
While this list is not complete, here are the results so far
Our Cattle team also excelled at the Shows bringing back a number of ribbons and prizes. We will share the details of these awards soon.
I think though we can all agree that it has been a very successful campaign for both the Sheep and Cattle teams this year. A big step up from last year and while we cannot rest on our laurels we have an enormous task ahead of us to improve further with next years scholarship teams and build on our success again.
This Friday at the Rupertswood harvest will be a perfect opportunity to come and see our elite sheep and cattle that everyone is talking about and to congratulate the teams on their outstanding performances over the year.
Elsewhere on the farm, the hay crops are coming along nicely and we should begin cutting those for baling in the next month or so. The fox proof fence is nearly complete and will provide a safe haven for next years chooks as well as the lambing ewes, which always face difficulties with the challenges of lambing in a high fox area. We should also have a few surprises for that area as well in the coming months.
