With a cold front approaching, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has issued a warning directed at sheep graziers in several regions of Queensland.

The alert encompasses the Granite Belt, Darling Downs, Maranoa, and Warrego areas, signalling potential hazards for livestock due to plummeting temperatures and bleak weather conditions.

According to meteorological forecasts, temperatures are expected to sharply decline, accompanied by bouts of rain and gusty winds that carry an icy chill. Such conditions pose a significant risk to the well-being of lambs and sheep left exposed to the elements.

Sheep graziers are strongly advised to heed this warning and implement necessary measures to safeguard their animals’ welfare.
