More rain re­quired

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

RAIN brought much-needed re­lief to the Gayn­dah and Mt Perry dis­tricts dur­ing the past week, but gra­ziers said it won’t break the drought.

Mt Perry gra­zier Arthur Din­gle said he had full re­ten­tion of cat­tle as prices had been too poor to sell.

“We knew it was go­ing to rain, but didn’t know when.

“We’ve had an inch to three-and-a-half inches in the last few days.”

With­out follow up rain, he said it wasn’t enough to break Gayn­dah’s drought.
