Herbert river mills – week 2 update

A total of 135,339 tonnes of cane were crushed for the week. Macknade Mill commenced crushing operations on Monday morning 21 June.


The average weekly CCS of 11.92 is encouraging.

Victoria Mill will have an A-side maintenance stop on Wednesday 29 June.

Thanks to those growers and contractors who have harvested cane that was limiting visibility around our cane railway crossings.
However, some crossings still have poor visibility and motorists are reminded to be cautious when approaching all cane rail crossings.
Please remember that cane trains can’t swerve and they can’t come to a quick stop. Use your train brain and always give way to cane trains.
