Herbert river mills – week 16 update

Just over 200,000 tonnes of cane were crushed for the week.

CCS levels remain suppressed with a very minor increase of .01 units for both the weekly average and the season to date.

Victoria Mill had a 12-hour B-side cleaning intermission on Wednesday whilst Macknade Mill undertook a five-hour stop on Friday for shredder tip maintenance.

This week, Victoria Mill’s A-side will have a 12-hour cleaning intermission on Thursday, 7 October. With the Herbert mills having processed 70% of the estimated crop, growers are urged to compare the physical areas left to harvest with what is listed in their field book on Grower Web.

Any variations should be reported to Wilmar Sugar on 4776 4390.
