Cotton field day moves to town

It was meant to be a morning of farm visits but MacIntyre Valley Cotton Field Day on March 17 was held entirely at Riddles Oval in Goondiwindi after welcome rain tumbled down all day. Sam and Jenny Bailey provided the first talk after lunch to the background of raindrops on the tin roof of the oval grandstand. No one imagined that within a week the town and surrounds would be facing the biggest flood since 2011.
