At Glen Holme we have finished our grain harvest, despite breaks due to extreme weather conditions that lead to days of high fire danger. Many producers in our area have been thankful for the income streams from their livestock enterprises and have indicated that they will increase their breeding ewe flock.
In all things, balance is critical to both survival and great management, and we may well see the pendulum swing a little towards sheep instead of the high input costs of cropping.
We have been able to move most of our sheep on to the fresh feed of stubbles and ease off the pressure on our annual pastures.
