We have many friends that have lost the lot and we are helping out anyway we can but for us that was one close call.


Stay safe up there mate, those fires looked bad

It takes a boat about 30 days to get from the United State why are they not getting emergency supply's sent over .
If the feed is processed no problems with quarantine.Big money is being made out of the drought there is not shortage of feed just farmers who can not afford to buy.

The fires are so big they are creating there own climate will be interesting to see what happens when smoke clears and vegetation starts growing .Here in Brisbane we had no rain and no live grass and 4 weeks ago had 150 ML of rain and some more 2 weeks later and now grass is growing madly .

Not sure what you mean, As for the shortage on feed, drought = no feed. processed or not.

as for farmers that can afford to buy feed at %500 mock up prices, worse then milk prices

There is no shortage of feed if you have the money can purchase what ever is needed .The reason feed is expensive is because very little has been imported.
If grain and other food items are processed and cooked like wheat bix or flaked corn or rolled oats then that over comes quarantine problems but that would stop the %500 mock up prices,

When Krakatoa erupted The eruption also affected the climate and caused temperatures to drop all over the world. .With all that smoke has to have effect like a volcano and now there is that volcano in the Philippines.Here in Brisbane had rain a month ago and now after being in drought every thing is growing mad and where these fires have been will start to regrow as these fire have been burning for months .
Interesting that they now want to feed wildlife and before the fires there was little food and water and no help for the animals.
