New Grader And Old Fences

Today we finally got the replacement grader we’ve been waiting for, the old one was starting cause a series problems including the problem of starting with it now needing a jump start, pressure bleed and aerostart. Fortunately it will no longer be our problem and the new one will straight to work putting in preventative firebreaks in case we get fires from electrical storms. On Saturday I finally found a way though a large creek that had been stopping me from checking a fence on the other side, its a find I’m regretting the fence hasn’t been checked in over a year and is down in too many places to count, hopefully i’ll finish it off tomorrow.

Trucking Cattle and Other Things

Yesterday was another full day at Humbert with  a road train loaded full of cattle first up in the morning followed by some more fencing and cleaning out some paddocks of  fence jumpers, with the loader still broken feeding out is still difficult with the bales still needing to be rolled onto the ute. With the final muster of the round starting today station life should be back to normal soon. The weather is still crazy with jumpers needed in the morning and it being 40 degrees by midday with hotter weather still to come.
