Herbert river mills – week 18 update

Just over 169,000 tonnes of cane were crushed for the week.

Average weekly CCS remains below budget at 12.87 units, with the season to date average sitting at 12.69 units.

A thunderstorm on Friday afternoon hindered some harvesting operations across the district.

Victoria Mills B-side No. 1 mill had a trash bar failure late in the week, resulting in reduced crushing capacity while repairs were being carried out.

Scheduled maintenance was brought forward at Victoria Mill to optimise the downtime. As a result, there will be no scheduled maintenance stops for the Herbert mills this coming week.

Growers are once again urged to compare the physical areas remaining for harvest with what is listed in their field book on the GrowerWeb. Any variations should be reported to Wilmar Sugar on 4776 4390.
