Great Southern Herald - - FRONT PAGE - Saskia Adysti

A Ko­jonup farmer sent this pic­ture to the Herald which shows her trac­tor bogged dur­ing a spread­ing ses­sion.

Beta Fleay from Jin­galup was help­ing her neigh­bour with some con­tract spread­ing work to find the soil was still too wet from the re­cent rain.

Mrs Fleay said Ko­jonup had re­ceived a lot of rain re­cently but luck­ily her other trac­tor, a John Deere 9530, pulled the bogged trac­tor out of the muddy field eas­ily.

Ac­cord­ing to the Bu­reau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy, Ko­jonup re­ceived a to­tal of 125.2mm rain­fall in July com­pared to Katan­ning which re­ceived a to­tal of 73.4mm.

Beta Fleay’s trac­tor was bogged dur­ing spread­ing.
