bward, let us know if any South Australian breeders visit you... I know most of them. I have also worked for several top Santa breeders in Qld, so will probably know one or two of your visitors!!
The weather here today is absolutely horrendous! We have had winds of 90km/h, while other parts of the state have had them up to 40km/h. there is a little rain interspersed amongst it but we need a fair bit more to make a difference. I've been feeding cows for the last few weeks and if we don't get a good rain soon will probably have to do so well into winter.
Anyone go to Sydney? It was a great show for Shorties, taking out the Urquhart and the Hordern trophies yesterday. For those who aren't aware, the Shortie cow took out the Urquhart: Moombi Daffodil X12 (bred and owned by Lester and Sonya Job, Cumnock NSW) with a top heifer calf at foot by a bull my boyfriend's sister bred. M Daffodil then teamed up with Polldale Ablaze (bred and owned by Kim Williams and family, Dubbo (I think) NSW) to take out the Hordern. Apparently everybody thought the Shorties were deserving winners. The cow recently took out Interbreed Female at the Dubbo Beef Spectacular.
Well that's my bit of news for today. Hope everyone is well!!
