Goulburn graziers like 'pigs in mud'Lucy Barbour, Wednesday June 26, 2013 - 12:22 EST
Graziers on the Southern Tablelands of NSW say their prayers have been answered after heavy rain this week has left paddocks soaked.
After a dry start to the year, sheep and cattle farmer Guy Milson recorded 115 millimetres in the gauge.
He says his farm is looking its best in two years and the rain is good for his triticale crop.
"Oh look, I think it's wonderful, you know, I'm like a pig in mud!" he said.
"The Brumbies won last week (and) hopefully we're going to get some reasonable lamb prices and hopefully if we can get some rain out in those western areas and in those northern areas.
"It'll take a bit of pressure off the cattle market and we might see some better cattle prices too."
Mr Milson says he hasn't heard any reports of stock losses despite flooding in low-lying areas of Goulburn.
Further south at Braidwood, on the Southern Tablelands, some farmers have recorded up to 260 millimetres of rain.
