State Outlooks for October 2017

Much needed rain has fallen in many regions while others areas are still quite dry. Barber’s pole worm infections, once considered a one in 10 year event after a wet summer in temperate zones, are now becoming more frequent due to above average winter temperatures. The recent rains have also prompted a flystrike alert.

We welcome Dr Peter Lynch from Toowoomba, Queensland as a contributor to the outlooks for that state.
