A Different Diff

After weeks of making terrible noise we’ve finally replaced the diff in the stations body truck, it was a slow and difficult process as we don’t have the correct gear to lift the heavy diff into place, but after a bit of improvising and a bit heavy lifting we had it in place and bolted in.  When the old diff was removed we didn’t find any metal shavings in the oil, just large bits and pieces in stead. Aside from that it was just a quick trip into Yarralin to pick up stores off the truck that’ll further top stations supplies for over the wet season.

Putting Out Lick

Its been a long day putting out cattle lick around the station, we received forty eight tonnes of wet season lick three days ago and have been spending the last two days putting it out. It is essential to keeping the cattle healthy but  a long process but it not with without its draw backs it is a long process and the blocks have as habit of falling off the truck and with a weight of 100kg a block they are impossible to pick back up. In other news the rain held off and the truck made it through by lunch today and one turkey  nest has been completed and the other one has been started on.
