A group of wool producers are blocked from crossing a small culvert on Reids Flat Road near Cowra by the storm last Friday, January 11. Landholders lacking groundcover could not prevent soil loss from last Friday's deluge.

“‘Farmers must prioritise avoiding putting themselves under intense pressure in long dry times as it can lead to depression and other mental health issues,” according to Dubbo Agricultural Consultant, Mark Gardner who recently spoke to a group of farmers at a Canowindra woolshed meeting.
