Councillor Amanda McClaren will lead the Council to the end of its four year term, having been recently re-elected as Mayor for another two years.

This was determined at a recent Statutory Council Meeting, where Council also resolved not to elect a Deputy Mayor for the next twelve months, providing the opportunity for Ward Councillors to rotate Mayoral duties in Cr McClaren’s absence.

Cr McClaren said she was truly honoured to be afforded the opportunity to continue to lead as Mayor for the next two years.

“It is a privilege to be given the opportunity to lead Council right through to the end of our term and I look forward to working closely with my fellow Councillors as a voice for our communities,” Cr McClaren said.

“We’ve got so much more that we want to achieve, and with upcoming State and Federal elections, we will continue to advocate strongly for our region.

We are at the halfway point in our four year term and the next two years will be critical for our Council, particularly as we undertake the recruitment and appointment of our next CEO,” Mayor McClaren said.

Euroa agents conducted an early Angus and All Breeds Feature Cattle Sale on Wednesday, 7 November, yarding around 2800 cattle.

With the season deteriorating over the last month, agents took the opportunity to run the feature sale a month early to take the pressure off farmers feeding stock at home.

Very high qualities of autumn drop calves were on display, with most calves only around 7-8 months of age.

The top pen of weaners tipped the scales at 363kg, with many others between 300- 340kg.

This was an outstanding result considering the season and the sale taking place five weeks earlier than normal.

Rodwells Stock Agent, Scott Meehan said a large crowd attended, and reported a much stronger sale fueled by some good orders from New South Wales and local restocker inquiry.

“The penning was the best quality yarding for three or four months,” Mr Meehan said.

“Several feedlot buyers chased the heavy older steers, weighing between 400– 500kg, pushing the value of these steers up by $100 - $150 on previous sales.”

Quality autumn drop weaners could be quoted as $150- $200 more than previous sales.

A small number of cows and calves were yarded, but also enjoyed price rises of up to $200 for the better end.

Community groups in the Strathbogie Shire will have the opportunity to attend a free workshop to gain a deeper understanding of how the energy market works and reduce their outgoing energy costs.

Strathbogie Shire Council has drawn from its networks and has asked utilities and energy specialists, CarbonetiX, to bring their inside knowledge to spend time with residents in a tailored community group workshop which will cover:

  • What makes up your energy bill? A breakdown of how the market works and what you’re being billed for
  • How to select the best energy deal; where to go to compare deals, the truth about ‘discounted’ energy deals, tariffs, key tips and tricks
  • Energy efficiency – where your community group likely uses its energy, behaviour changes to reduce energy, how to select the best tariff based on your energy use profile
  • Case studies and a review of your community groups’ energy bills

The workshop will take place on Thursday, 22 November, from 6- 8.30pm at Strathbogie Shire Council in the Conference Room, via the Bury Street entrance.
