A local livestock agent says things are getting desperate for a lot of cattle producers and farmers across the Highlands, especially ones who can't irrigate.

The cold winds around a month ago, and the recent frosts certainly haven't helped and Ben Hindmarsh says unfortunately there doesn't look like any rain in the short term.

In the meantime, with not alot of feed around, the hay trucks continue to roll in.

Mr. Hindmarsh says things are desperate, however he insists cattle with a bit of weight in them are still selling pretty well with strong interest from Victorian processors.
