Chamber steps in on railway project
NIKKI and Peter Mahony at Gyranda Station are offering courses for practical cattle handling.
A low-stress approach, the LSS school is a remarkable two-day program that can leave you wanting to do stock work, seeing the economic benefits in the kilos gained and the ease in which stock handling can be achieved.
Schools cater for someone who has little or no experience in handling stock, as well as highly competent stock people.
The school is on Monday, May 22, and Tuesday, May 23. Contact Gyranda for details and costs.

Last Wednesday, Theodore Chamber of Commerce held its monthly meeting with a huge turnout.
One of the hot topics again was the incomplete railway building project.
Members proposed the chamber formally take over the project due to very slow progress in the past eight months.
Members felt they had been let down by key persons involved in the development role, while some individuals had done a fantastic job.
In a short time prior to the meeting, members were able to put together an actions plan as well as obtain several quotes, including for painting and specialist sandblasting, as well as key advice on getting the project moving.
The council has been helpful in providing information to get the project moving.
A special on-site meeting was called for Tuesday to decide on the scope of development for the building and where necessary obtain suitable council approvals.
The aim now is to get it finished.
Following suit with other regional property sales, Theodore has had a number of recent developments.
New residents Mr and Mrs Trussell – locally nicknamed Mr and Mrs Monster Truck due to the size of their vehicle – arrived in Theodore a while ago and liked it so much they decided to stay, buying a house on Eleventh Ave.
