DERBY NOTES. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 27 January 1906

DERBY NOTES. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). The rains have come only just in time to save thousands of head of dying cattle. A few weeks longer delay and Kimberley would have lost stock to such a serious extent that years must have elapsed before its regaining a flourishing condition. As it is many thousands of cattle and sheep have been lost. On all stations there has   been loss. Some, however, have not suffered severely, whilst others have re- ceived a blow that will take a year or two to recover. Obogamma station is one of the favoured few. The losses there do not exceed 200 bead. The Yeeda station loss is estimated at 500 to 600. The Gogo and   Fossil Downs stations lost very heavily, but no accurate figures are to hand. Kim-   berley Downs station, or Balmaningarra as it was called until recently, had no loss over the average. The same can be said of the Barker River station. The losses will be felt chiefly at shearing time up the Fitzroy,...
