The season has started with Victoria Mill kicking off at 8.17am this morning, after a few minor commissioning issues the factory settled into crushing. The mill reported as of this afternoon they are working through the clarification mud filters and evaporators as they commission with juice. The mill expects to have sugar tomorrow morning.
Today the district harvested approximately 7,000 tonnes and 1,000 tonnes yesterday. If the mill has a reasonable run they will run out of cane early tomorrow. The mill expects around 9,500 tonnes to be cut tomorrow.
Macknade mill has crews ready over the weekend should cane supply improve, looking at a possible Monday start.
