Inverness In late February 2018.
The year 2017 was the warmest year on record for NSW. It had also been the driest year since 2016. Although the Goulburn Region was not as badly affected, At Inverness we missed the Spring and Autumn rains that are so important for pasture growth in the Southern Tablelands. By the end of February 2018, there was very little grass. And as a result, we’ve needed to feed cattle throughout the winter of 2018. Rainfall in January and June tends to be ineffective because of the extreme heat in summer and winter frosts.
