With the current conditions in the Lower Hunter we have been inundated with more enquiries than we have ever received before. A combination of very hot weather and the retirement of a few other hobby shearers has resulted in a massive influx in jobs on our waiting list. As a result when have been unable to get to quite a few jobs we would usually have done already and we do thank everyone for their patience. On the butchering side of the business things are much the same, a lack of feed on the ground together with the lack of water in dams, water restrictions and increased price of fodder and supplementary feed has see us have our usual annual number of enquiries come in only a couple of months. We are working hard to try and get back to everyone but please understand that the person that does all the work also does all the admin work so it does take time to get through. We are working to improve the process of quotes and booking so we ask please be patient and stay tuned for when its all up and running.
