Despite the eventful start to 2020 in the Walwa district, preparations for The Glen’s 50th Annual On Property Bull Sale to be conducted on Friday 18th September are on schedule.

A spot fire breaks out on the back of “Glenview” from the main front of the bushfire which decimated the Upper Murray on 30th December, 2019. One of The Glen Pastoral’s three properties had been totally burnt earlier that afternoon and by nightfall on New Years Eve, 75% of Glenview was burnt. Fortunately we did not lose any cattle or stored fodder or suffer any damage to our homestead precinct. We were more fortunate that most properties in our district.

We are relieved to report that the recovery process from this disaster is pretty much completed. The clean-up, replacement of fences, re-sowing of pasture and fodder crops has all been completed. The 400 cattle that were consigned to agistment in the Riverina and Western District of Victoria have all returned home. Our breeding and sales programs have remained on track.

We wish to record our thanks to our family for their support, the people who agisted cattle for us and those who donated fodder. The assistance of fence contractors, Blaze Aid, earth moving contractors, cattle transporters and stock agents is also much appreciated.

Our recovery has been made much easier than expected due to the abundant early Autumn rainfall which has resulted in an excellent season.
