April 2015 ….in Brief !

April 2015 ….in Brief !

April is a month that always seems to be here and gone before you know it ! Well…….. all the months  seem that way these days! It is always a time to fit in the social and family  aspects  of Easter as well as Anzac Day and support the local Shows  in our  North Burnett area.

Alongside these events, the normal run of maintenance , steer consignment and the early enquiries for bull sales all go ahead as usual. Jobs that need attention such as any yard maintenance etc are all carried out so that our weaning which is planned for early May- just after Beef 2015 this year- can all proceed without any undue hitches.

We have had over 94 mms of rain for the month, with 50mms of that total falling on the last day of April!………   and the cooler nights suggest winter is closing in !

Below are just some of the moments  that were captured during April 2015.

The month started with 30mms of rain and these scuds were a common sight for a few days.

The cattle are all contented – and why wouldn’t they be!

Ample feed and the pattern of their daily routine uninterrupted…….life has been  pretty hassle- free this month for the girls  !

Heifers start to come out of the Main Yards following Preg Testing – all in calf over a tight period – so very happy with that result !

The waterholes in the creek that filled this year have made some pleasant swimming and picnic spots however!

Unfortunately , these spots are not permanent.
