Happy New Year!
Wishing all our customers and happy, healthy and safe New Year.

It has been a little hectic this last week or so with majority being affected by the loss of electricity some for up to 3 days! Might be worth thinking about getting a generator (just in case there is a next time) Come in and speak to Bronte about what generator would suit your needs best. 

Now that a lot of the dry feed has lost its protein, try a ‘Rods Salt Block’ to help maintain the condition on your livestock. 

We have a new range of Norton portable sheep ramps, panels and drafters, come in and check out our set up and pricing.

We have a new range of auger and drill bits from Sutton tools, great quality and reasonably priced.

Sheila walked into the kitchen to find Bruce stalking around with a fly swatter.
"What are you doing?" She asked. 
"Hunting Flies" He responded. 
"Oh. Killing any?" She asked. 
"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied. 
Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell them apart?" 
He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."
