South East Local Land Services is issuing a public awareness announcement regarding traveling stock in the Boorowa district over the next three to four weeks.
Senior Biosecurity Officer Scott Schlunke is encouraging land managers and drivers to slow down and use caution when approaching the mob.
“There will be a mob of about 650 cattle coming through the district over the next three to four weeks.” Scott said,
“The mob will be grazing around the Tarengo Traveling Stock Reserve area over the long weekend but will be moving again on Tuesday.
“The cattle have entered the area on the Galong Road and will be traveling along Cunningar Road, Hughstonia Road, Campbellfields Road, Murringo Road, across Lachlan Valley Way, Kenyu Road, Oak Hill Lane, Rugby Road, Coopers Lane, Heathfield Road, Geegullalong Road and Stock Route 63”.
‘Cattle ahead’ road signs will be posted on the roads within 5 km either side of the traveling stock as they move through the district.
Exact dates of stock movement along individual stretches of road and throughout the district are difficult to forecast and will be subject to local conditions so drivers are encouraged to keep an eye out for signage and approach the mob with caution.
Land managers or members of the community can contact Scott Schlunke, Senior Biosecurity Officer, on 0407 489 574 with any questions.
