Moss­man Mill pro­cessed 32,192 tonnes of cane for the week at an av­er­age crush­ing rate of 334 t/hr with plant avail­abil­ity on bud­get. Wet weather dur­ing the week ini­tially re­sulted in a 10 hour stop but af­ter fur­ther rain dur­ing the night the fac­tory crushed out and shut down for a fur­ther 24 hours. This stop pro­vided the op­por­tu­nity to in­spect the boil­ers and ad­dress any is­sues while off­line. Su­gar pro­duc­tion rates and qual­ity stan­dards have re­mained high this week. The wet weather is also slow­ing the crop from ma­tur­ing with lit­tle change in CCS and fi­bre week to week, both of which still re­main well be­low bud­get at 11.81 and 14.88 re­spec­tively. CCS av­er­age to date is 11.00.
