Spring is always the best time of year on the farm, as the days get longer, everything begins to grow at an incredible rate. The grass on the top of the farm is now easily out-competing the grazing pressure and the barley sown for hay is just beginning to push out its seed head.
Last week we received, 127 eight-month old Angus heifers from north of Condobalin, NSW, where there is no grass at all. I have recently sent some photos to the owners who couldn’t believe the luxury their girls had moved to and they were extremely happy.
Last weekend, some of the Sheep Scholars ventured off to the Poll Dorset show in Bendigo where they not only brought all the ribbons home for an outstanding presentation of sheep and handling, they also represented the school extremely well, which was noticed by a large contingent of the attendees.
The steer scholars are busy with their final preparations for the Melbourne Show and I think they will be rewarded well for their efforts, the cattle are looking great and the scholar’s have good control over them. We must thank Luke Taylor and his family for providing the steers for this event as well as the time he has put in. Without these generous connections of the school, programs like this would not be possible.
