The onset of rain on Thursday set the scene for the Legacy Stock Drive.
The drive was marked by cutting of a cake and the selling of legacy pins. And some producers donated a portion of their stock to the cause. Legacy Junee branch chairman, Chris Moloney was at the sheep sale to talk about the sheep drive.
He was also happy to talk up the prospect of imminent rain. “Everybody is desperate, and looking to the sky … it hasn’t happened yet but it is building up and they are forecasting 10mm to 20mm,” he said on Thursday.
“It is desperately needed, this area is holding on but we badly need rain now,” he said.
“It is 50 years since the Wantabadgery settlers started this stock drive,” he said.
“It has been a great fundraiser for Junee Legacy and Wagga Legacy,” he said.
