We are the offical weather station for Preston and we measured 17.2 mm in the gauge to 9 am and this morning Mark measured 72.2 mm, so that is 89.4 mm in just over 24 hours.
Our paddocks have absorbed every drop, with the cracks disappearing before your eyes and we are already showing the benefits of an instant green flush. It is time to add some more Kelp and Fish mixture to get the pasture growing before the weather turns too cold. The cows seem happy to have fresh green pick.
I suppose we can put the drought relief forms away until next time!!
