Keeping Up The Water

As the weather delayed the completion of the final turkey nest the cattle were starting to run low on water so I’ve spent the day running water to troughs, 1000 liters at a time. Its a slow process with the tank taking half a hour to fill each time from the bore, the cattle clean up the water quickly so its a constant and never ending process. Fortunately the nest has been finished and there’ll be water in the troughs again by  tomorrow afternoon. Yesterday we picked up our tractor and post ram from our yards on the outside of town only to find that they had been vandalized, wiring was cut, battery was missing, fuel bowl was broken and the fuel was drained, unfortunately these problems can occur when leaving things close to town for an extented period of time.

More Fires

Fires are continuing to devastate Humbert River Station as it sweeps across three paddocks with no signs of slowing and with the grader now broken we can no longer cut fire breaks to try and contain it. Hopefully a wind change and some cool nights will help bring it under control.
