Moyvane Notes – 1st April, 2007

Good Weather:
A lot of cattle have been out on land over the past week due to the very dry weather. Despite all the rain that fell during the winter, land is exceptionally good for this time of year and it must have something do with last year’s exceptionally dry year. Early indications are that they will be no Super Levy penalties this year.
