    We only ended up with 12 mm and should be able to get sowing again tomorrow. It’s given me a chance to get some sheep work done. 350 ewes to drench and vaccinate tomorrow before they start lambing. How much rain did you get Roy.

    Rainfall forecast here has fallen which is good for sowing. It was 60mm at lunch time, and at 2 am when I got home it’s now 30 mm That will only stop us for 5 days if we don’t get more.

    I have good P levels so will reduce my MAP a bit. Still need N so I will just be very careful to only spread before rain and spread less with each application.

    The flooding huge rainfalls have only been in the east flowing catchments along the coast. On the western side of the mountains there have been some decent rains, but not floods. I have heard a lot of sorghum in northern NSW has shot in the heads with the rain as it was about ready to harvest.

    Think Canola has only gone up about $30 since the Ukraine invasion. Wheat has not risen much yet either. Most our Canola is sold, but I still have a bit of wheat left to pay for the tractor.

    Forgot what it made, but I think it was around $6,000. He told me it was a bit to nuts for him. Dennis Mitchels Dog was the bargain of the day and only made $6,000. It was a very good dog.

    Yes there was a family all dressed like that. Don’t think they are Amish, but they must be from a similar group. I don’t know where they were from but I don’t think they are local.

    Biden is about to get in a tank and invade himself. He is that crazy and unpredictable he will start a war before Putin.

    Hare and buzzard

    Cats have done to many times in Australia and other places they were introduced to. Cats get a preferred food and will eat it until there are none left before switching. I think there is something like 30 species now extinct in Australia due to cats. Thats why I shoot every cat I can.
