Creosoate posts are extremely short again we have been advised that there will be a 6 to 12 month wait on a majority of sizes. With the square creo post having an “indefinite” waiting period.   

Animal Health

Don’t forget to give your lambs their second vaccine ‘booster’. If lambs don’t receive a second dose 4 weeks after the initial dose they will not receive the full immunity of the vaccine. We also have all your lamb marking needs, vaccine, applicators, needles, marking rings, elastrator pliers, shears, mulesing shears, Tri-solfen, ear tags and applicators.

Garden

don’t forget to get the last couple of copper oxychloride sprays in on your fruit trees before they become dormant. Plant a bit of sage in with your brassicas, it will act like a natural repellent for caterpillars and moths. Keep up with the weeding in your vege patch.
