Beyond the Bale : September 2019
71 READERS' PHOTOS BEFORE THE BREAK Corinne Heintze of Minyip in Victoria was fortunate to take this beautiful photo of her ewes coming acrosss the dusty paddock to the feed trailer, just on sunset at the end of April. Since then the Wimmera has had good rains and suddenly it is verdant green once again. A REMARKABLE VIEW A beautiful shot of Mt Remarkable, viewed from the property of Peter McCallum between Melrose and Booleroo Centre in the Southern Flinders region of South Australia. BLADES OF GLENCOE Nicki Guttler was one of the 70 shearers (35 female, 35 male) blade shearing at this year’s ‘Blades of Glencoe’ shearathon in South Australia, an event to raise awareness for mental health in the farming industry. Nicki has been shearing full time for the past three years, but only started to blade shear especially for this event. The photo was sent in by her parents Helen and Paul Guttler from Boree Creek in the Riverina of NSW, who are very proud of their daughter in the career she has chosen. WOOL JACKETS PERFECT FOR SERRA TERROR Elders Hamilton District Wool Manager Andrew Howells with teammates who successfully completed the two-day 70km Serra Terror endurance event in the Grampians National Park. Andrew said the team’s 100% wool water-resistant jackets were perfect for hiking in. Check out page 13 for details. A VISIT TO HONG KONG While in Hong Kong on holidays, Jenny and Bevin Bury from ‘Jaburee’ at Wilmington in South Australia stopped in at The Woolmark Company’s office – pictured here is Bevin examining a ‘KnitWarm’ jacket that incorporates electric self-heating technology. The Burys also attended the latest Merino awards at the Hong Kong Design Institute. “It was absolutely fantastic to see new innovative ideas and changes of cultures in wool production and designs,” the Burys said. ON THE LOOKOUT Anthony and Jenny Websdale who run a small sheep farm at Lindenow South, west of Bairnsdale in Victoria, took this early morning photo of their kelpie Bundy, perched high on the bike and keeping an eye on the Merino ewes.
