OUT of Cooma, at Kunuma Angus Stud the Lynchs are busy getting some extra hay into their Angus herd after a 30cm dump of snow.

Dean Lynch, who is also Snowy-Monaro Regional Council administrator, has been busy with his dad Keith, 92, and son Mitch keeping feed up to his Angus cattle.

It’s brought happy faces to the Lynchs, knowing the slow melt from the snowfall will make a perfect situation for pastures coming into spring. Kunuma is on the Snowy Mountains Highway.

And it’s the same all over many parts of the ranges in the Monaro where the snow has fallen in what some weather boffins have called the ‘Blizzard of Oz’.  The snow came in from the west with good coverage on the higher ranges, but not quite making it to the plains country.

Kunuma is the one of the highest Angus studs in Australia at about 1270m. The stud sells at its other property at about 1318m. Cooma and Adaminaby economies are enjoying the spin-off from the snow dump and Snowy 2.0.
