Herbert river mills – week 9 update

The Herbert mills have now processed just under a third of the estimated 2021 crop.


Just over 186,000 tonnes of cane was crushed in a week impacted by rain.


Average weekly CCS was 12.95 units for the second week running. The season-to-date CCS has risen slightly to 12.46 units, but remains below budget.


Wet weather across the district in the later part of the week impacted harvesting operations, resulting in reduced milling throughput.


The wet conditions allowed for maintenance to be brought forward at Macknade Mill. Victoria Mill also utilised cane supply shortfalls to bring forward this coming week’s scheduled maintenance stop.
