TAS Country : June 9th 2011
10 Tasmanian Country Friday, June 10, 2011 News 'I'll be sorry to leave but no doubt I will coming back to do the pruning' ---JAN GANGELL Gavel comes down on a MOVING ON: Jan with sons Andrew and Norman and Norman's wife, Robyn. Below, the auction attracted steady bidding. FIND: Collector Maree Cowen of Colebrook successfully bid on a group of tobacco tins. JENNIFER CRAWLEY JAN Gangell is getting ready to leave Rosewood --- her home of 48 years. The Gangells have far- med in the Tea Tree valley of south-east Tasmania for generations. Jan's hus- band Graeme died two years ago, and she is sell- ing up. Farmers travelled from all over the state to a clearance sale held on the property last month. Collectors and the curi- ous crowded around Ro- berts auctioneer Andrew Skinner as the gavel came down on a lifetime of farm- ing. Jan has four sons, two live in Sydney and two farm locally and help her on the family farm. The family is in a transi- tion stage, son Andrew Gangell said. They have sold most of the sheep and lease the land to a sheep farmer. ''We still have one little flock left,'' Jan said. The once large property was capable of producing 120 bales of wool a year. The family have a small vineyard of pinot noir, chardonnay and riesling grapes and an olive grove. Their first grape vintage was picked in 2006. Nic Glaetzer is in charge of the wine and Ashbolt Farm's Bob Ashbolt makes the olive oil. Pestivirus is haunting the reproductive success of most Australian herds.

Growth. www.pfizeranimalhealth.com.au Pestivirus infection can be a haunting experience. This devastating disease, which impacts on reproductive success through reduced calving, weaning and turnoff rates, can affect every cattle breeder in Australia. You may not think you're at risk, but your herd could already be infected, silently robbing you of their reproductive potential. And if your herd has never been infected before, the introduction of a new pestivirus infection could have a significant impact on the future of your operation. So if you're seeing less calves or more poor doers than you expect, act now and insure your herd with Pestigard .
