Dairy farmers on the Atherton Tablelands have received a drenching throughout the recent weather events. QDO State Councillor James Geraghty received over 905mm over four days at his Millaa Millaa property. The rain event was one of the heaviest non-cyclone related events in recent memory.
The rainfall is good news for farmers in the region with fields and pastures looking particularly green and Tinaroo Dam increasing from 30 per cent capacity to 70 percent.
There have been not initial reports of damage to the regions dairy farmers and it would be fair to say that overall there are smiles on the faces of dairy farmers on the Tablelands.
