Queensland’s cattle industry as a whole is expecting about 500,000 dead cattle.
“What about an ex tropical cyclone in February in NW Queensland killing cattle by hypothermia in Summer ?” asks reader Rosco Mac.
“It’s been more than seven years since the region received a substantial downpour but the monsoon — which saw clouds dump three years worth of rain in 10 days — is expected to cripple farmers for decades.”
“If the cattle have not drowned or frozen to death in the elements, devastated farmers now face having to kill thousands of animals. The situation is so terrible that there are reports the farmers have run out of bullets.”
I repeat this occurred in summer in areas where the temperature is typically 40°C during summer.
