Mr Ettershank said falls of up to 30mm had been recorded, throughout the district. ”It’s certainly picked things up a bit. Feed was drying off and the crops were starting to get a bit thirsty, so it’s given us some hope going into spring.

“It’s a springboard into spring. We weren’t desperate, but you could see things were starting to turn.”
