Welcome to our warm spring newsletter. Once again it seems to be the season for braking records, with the warmest winter on record in many areas. Let’s hope this helps for an early spring break for the northern half of our great country. Speaking of great things reminds me of a conversation that I recently had with someone about a not so great product that they had purchased. “I paid real money for this thing” he said pointing to the article, “and look at it – only fit for landfill”.
Thompson Longhorn provided the RNA with one of our pneumatic restrainers - Monarch MkII - to be part of the Cow Paddock display at the 2017 Ekka. The display is aimed at entertaining the general public and showing real examples of cattle handling. This is a great initiative for reducing the gap between the city and the bush and allowing the city folks to see how cattle are handle and treated in a safe way.

More than 2500 years ago, the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, said, "change is the only constant". The past 3 months at Thompson Longhorn has certainly proved him right!
It would be fair to say that the last few months have presented us with an "early Spring" like we have never seen before in the Australian Beef industry.
unseasonably high rain falls over large areas of the continent have assisted in ensuring beef prices continue to smash records.
