Happy New Year!
Wishing all our customers and happy, healthy and safe New Year.

It has been a little hectic this last week or so with majority being affected by the loss of electricity some for up to 3 days! Might be worth thinking about getting a generator (just in case there is a next time) Come in and speak to Bronte about what generator would suit your needs best. 

Now that a lot of the dry feed has lost its protein, try a ‘Rods Salt Block’ to help maintain the condition on your livestock. 

We have a new range of Norton portable sheep ramps, panels and drafters, come in and check out our set up and pricing.

We have a new range of auger and drill bits from Sutton tools, great quality and reasonably priced.

Sheep News

Please keep an eye on your sheep in the up and coming months, its looking like a pretty big season for flies and spray on treatments (Clik, Venus, Swatta, Cyromazine) are already looking short. Please place your orders ASAP so we can make sure we have it put aside for you.

Summer weed sprays- get your orders in now, as pricing is looking at going up and Sprayseed looking short. Looking back on last year Garlon will probably be short as well.

Joke of the Month

Sheila walked into the kitchen to find Bruce stalking around with a fly swatter.
"What are you doing?" She asked. 
"Hunting Flies" He responded. 
"Oh. Killing any?" She asked. 
"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied. 
Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell them apart?" 
He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."

Joke of the Month
