Bumper hay harvest

Exceptional rainfall has helped local farmer David Harrison to produce a mountain of hay at his property Nullawarra, south of Cobar. Mr Harrison said it’s been a bumper year, and the best he’s had since he started growing hay 12 years ago. From the same paddock six years ago he produced 400 round bales and this year he’s got the equivalent of 3,500. “It just proves we can grow hay in Cobar when the seasons are right,” he said.
