Mixed season in Victoria's south east

Kath Sullivan, Wednesday August 21, 2013 - 14:41 EST

Kevin Jones is a dairy farmer between Toora and Foster in South Gippsland.

So far this month he has measured more than 125mm (or 5 inches) of rain on his farm.

I guess it could always be worse, but it's at the bottom end of ugly if you know what I mean. It's so wet, it's so cold. We've got no where dry, except for laneways to put cows on. And every cow that calves, we just get the calf and put it straight in the shed and feed it, they just don't survive otherwise
