G’day from everyone here at Warrawagine Cattle Co. This year I have joined forces with Jacinta over at Wallal and together we hope to share with you all of the exciting things that have been going on at Wallal and Warrawagine.
I think its pretty safe to say a lot has changed since last checking into Central Station, it’s been a busy few months with many new job titles added to the resume, we’ve been building sheds, clearing land at Wallal, constructing center pivots, putting in new watering points, establishing new staff accommodation, and now we are well into the 2014 mustering season.
We are nearly half way through mustering here at Warrawagine – we have completed all of the breeder cattle that live in the paddocks around the homestead yards and are now onto our first area of bush mustering out at Myola, which is about 40km from the homestead.
We have two more musters to do into the yards at Myola we will be finished just in time for the Marble Bar Races and Ball! After that weekend we pack up our bags and swags and move to our first bush camp site for the year Woodie Woodie. We spend nearly six weeks camping out and mustering into the portable yards, we are very lucky to be able to come home most weekends to process the sale cattle picked up from the past week of mustering and get to do a bit of washing and restocking while we are at it.
