Stony Creek dairy farmer Doug Hanks says more heavy rain on the weekend rain topped up already soaked soil on his property.
Gippsland had the best of the rainfall, from a series of cold fronts which passed across the state.
"This is south Gippsland, rain doesn't mean much to us in winter," Mr Hanks said.
"If it didn't rain again until September, I'd be a very happy man."
He measured 54 millimetres of rain over the weekend.
One property in the area has recieved 280mm in the past 10 weeks.
At Mirboo, another property has received 350mm of rain, this year.
Mr Hanks said the farm received good late summer and autumn rains, but with 100-150 millimetres of clay, on top of "coffee rock" the ground was now saturated.
Coffee rock is similar to sandstone but harder to bore through.
"The water will go through the topsoil, but gets waterlogged in the clay, as it can't soak into the rock," Mr Hanks said.
I’ve got the best Autumn ground cover I’ve had in years. Will start drying cows off end of this month and then slow rotation down. All looking good... so far.😬— Peter Young🇦🇺 (@PeterYoungDairy) May 18, 2021
Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Keris Arndt said most of the good falls were in the west Gippsland ranges, the Baw Baw plateau and Mount Dandenong.
"They probably had the most consistent, highest falls, out to the Bass Coast, to Wilson's Prom, as well," Mr Arndt said.
"The north-west is still missing out, it's been very, very dry up there."
He said totals, from a series of cold fronts, were not exceptionally high.
Wilson Promentary recorded 62 millimetres, Yarragon South 57.6mm, Mount Donna Buang, 51.6mm, Balook, 47mm and Moe 43.6mm.
"There were a few bulls-eyes over that Gippsland area," Mr Arndt said.
"It was almost a new front, every day, enhancing shower activity along the south-coast, with cold conditions and snow on the ranges," he said.
Northerly winds would follow a weak cold front, on Thursday.
"Some slightly milder conditions are coming, then back to another high pressure system, after that," he said.
