As I write this post, our Brooklana Angus Stud , based within the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area, has recently broken the Australian record, for the sale of a pen of commercial, in calf heifers, at $4,600 each.

Also, right now, we hold the Australian record for the highest average price for bulls sold in 2021, at $14,600 each.
Agriculture plays a big part in the role that Coffs Harbour has throughout Australia.
We invest a considerable amount into our farm, our infrastructure, our cattle. Not all into the Coffs LGA, but a lot of it.
Our local Ulong community has received funds to up grade our hall, around $100,000, from the Bushfire Recovery Plan.
We are waiting, waiting.
The delay is because Council are repairing McPherson’s bridge, according to Council. My brain says, “but we have our staff contracted out to Armidale fixing their bridges.”
Sorry, something is wrong here, very wrong. We are waiting to receive a benefit from the State/ Federal government grant, Council have the money, but not the workers.
Well, yes they do have the workers, but they are working elsewhere, which makes us short staffed. We don’t pay rates in Armidale, we pay rates here.
