Capacity Reached at CBH = Wheat on the Ground!

Deliveries to Co-operative Bulk Handling (CBH) exceeded capacity in Carnamah a few days before Christmas. With no permanent and temporary storage available to take the steady deliveries of grain it was necessary to store the grain on the ground! Seeing is believing - take a look at the photos below!

My brother and I just got back from looking around up there as Len was one of the shire workers called in to clear more space and wow they are still dropping wheat wherever they can! They have also dropped Lupin on the corner of Railway Avenue just over the train line also. Ive heard locals say this is the best theyve ever encountered. Let us know if you would like some more updated photos.
