At last we managed to have a meeting. So good to get together again albeit with social distancing!
Frances our Agriculture and Environmental Officer gave a talk on Parthenium weed and the need for good hygiene on the farm as disease can spread by indirect contact, contact from blood, and birth products and contaminated dust and chemicals.
Our next meeting will be our AGM on Friday October 9 at 11 am. Memberships are due.
On Monday October 12 it will be the Central Western Group meeting in Canowindra at Services Club Gaskill St, commencing at 9.30 am.
Two councillors and three delegates from Eugowra will be attending. Eugowra will be supplying morning tea.

We have found that over the drought and Covid-19 people have been most generous, with a donation of barley from Warren Saunders Insurance brokers, from which several farmers in the area benefited. "Let it rain" Give it gave eight families gift cards of $250 each.
Essential Energy have also given our branch a discount for which we are most grateful. As there has been no fundraising this year, we really appreciate their generosity.
And just this week a lady from Wollongong called in and donated four beautiful quits for us to use as a fundraiser. She had heard that you can get really good coffee in Eugowra.
