FARMERS PLEASED WITH RECENT RAINS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 2 March 1951
FARMERS PLEASED WITH RECENT RAINS Local farmers and graziers are quite pleased with the re cent rains of an inch and a half aud, in places, more. Although the following warm weather- and sunshine are proi 'ductive of blowfly menaces, this will be greatly offset by the re plenishing of .water holes /and damg which, in many instances, were becoming critically low or, ! in a few instances, had dried, j The ground is now in a po-i sition very suitable for plough-, ing. Last year saw little wheat grown in the district, but hopes for. greater acreage and yields in 1951 are high. Mauy graziers have bought oats to poison rabbits, and most seem to be anxious this year to clean out the menace. With rabbit skins bringing such good prices, it is certain that Frog mare's rabbit population will shortly be depleted to a great I extent.

RESUMPTION OF SHEEPSKIN AUCTIONS AT GOULBURN [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 2 March 1951
RESUMPTION OF SHEEPSKIN AUCTIONS ATGOULBURN Farmers & Graziers' an nounce the resumption of sheepskin auctions at Goul burn on 13th Til arch. These sales, which always drew a representative gather ing of buyers and were very popular with district graziers, etc., were discontinued about 18 months ago due to shortage of storage space. This difficulty has now been overcome by the provisions of a large store and showrooms. An added facility is a spacious drying room equipped with special electric fans and ventil ating system. It ia expected that further regular sales will be held at in. tervals of not more than a month, probably every three weeks. Consignors of skins to Goul burn and otlier centres are re minded that bundles must be tied with rope or twine, as store men and the Railway authorit ies will not handle those done up with wire.

The Centre, started* modestly six years .ago, is to-day acknowledged as the finest institution of its kind in the world. Without Government financial aid, it is performing a splendid community service by assisting, children, otherwise doomed to a life of hopeless invalidism, to become useful and happy citizens.
