The Hawks took the first few minutes of the first half to find their footing against the Magpies.

The Hawks approached the match with caution and knew Haycould inflict heavy damage after they defeatedsecond-ranked Tullibigeal Lake Cargelligo last week.

“Momentum is everything in this game,” said Hawks co-coach Glenn Dumbrell.

“Once you get a bit of momentum going, it’s hard to stop.”

With their feet dug in, the only way the Hawks could move was forward.

The side clawed into an early lead and set the pace for the remainder of the first half, heading into the break with a 16-6 lead.

As the weather became an issue for Hay atthe start of the second half, Yanco-Wamoon continued their relentless attack.

The Hawks made easy work of the Magpies defence as they repeatedly punched holes through their line for try after try.

“We had to turn half chances into full chances,” Dumbrell said.

“As soon as someone cracked that line we had three or four blokes getting through.

“It really clicked for us today which was fantastic.”

The horn finally rang out and Hay had been dispatched.

Contributing to the win for the Hawks was halfback Jarrod Muller-Dobbe.

“He took a bit more control on that right edge,” said Dumbrell

“Hehelped push up with the blokes, so they were organised a little bit better.”

Having lost the previous two matches against West Wyalong Mallee Men and Waratahs Tigers, the Hawks were hungry for redemption.

Yanco-Wamoon have now set their sights on this week’slocal derby where they will go toe-to-toe with ladder-leader the Leeton Greens.

It will prove to be an exciting match at the No. 1 Oval with position and bragging rights on the line for both local teams.

BLUE LIGHT: Senior Constable Brad Wood is looking forward to engaging with local youth at the Blue Light disco.

AS PART of their new community engagement policy the Glen Innes local police will start operating blue light discos in the region.

The Blue Light program is the beginning of a proposed range of youth programs and initiatives that the Glen Innes police want to run.

Glen Innes police Sergeant Mark Johnston said the discos will be free from alcohol and drugs and offer local youth a safe place to enjoy each other’s company.

“We have a number of police in Glen Innes who are keen to get involved and I will encourage them to engage with local youth’s and programs like Blue Light discos are the perfect way to do that,” he said.

“Ultimately I’d like to run them regularly, maybe start them off bi-monthly and see how we go from there.

“If we could we’d like to hold one in Glen Innes, then Deepwater, then Emmaville and rotate them around the district, I know from past experience that the blue light discos are a great way to engage youth and they do work.”

Sergeant Johnston said the Blue Light disco needs the support of local businesses to run as it is a totally non for profit organisation.

“It will be the local businesses and councils that will make this work,” he said.

“When I reopened the Blue light in Lightning Ridge I had great support from the local community.

“Although we are in the planning phase at the moment it should not take long to get it happening”

Sergeant Johnston said Glen Innes has two officers, Senior Constable Wood and McMurtrie that are enthusiastic and keen to see things happening with the Blue Light.

Senior Constable Brad Wood said he has lived in the town for a number of years and sees the Blue Light discos as a long overdue initiative.

“I have children and family in the town and I have seen the need for this for a few years,” he said.

“I feel it is a great opportunity for the kids to see police in a better light and the discos help make them more comfortable speaking with us.”

Dabbling in Charolais to win

Breeder Laurie Tillman, Cedar Point via Kyogle and fitter Mitch Dundas, Boatharbour via Lismore, with Charolais cows at Kyogle. By using Canadian genetics Mr Tillman has developed a prize producing female line.FORMER dairyman Laurie Tillman, Cedar Point via Kyogle, has turned to breeding Charolais in his semi-retirement using Canadian genetics in the form of AI and embryo transfer to create a small line of moderately framed animals.

His hunch seems to be on-track, with a recent steer placing top of the tree at Casino Beef Week’s carcase competition.

The 439kg liveweight steer accumulated 91.2 points with 18.5 out of 20 for market specifications and a perfect score for saleable meat yield.

Mr Tillman is proud of his cow line -as is anyone from a dairying background -with genetics sourced from straight Charolais out of Canada.

The winning steer, for instance, was sired through AI –at Mr Tillman’s hand –by Mt Bluegrass out of a dam created by embryo transfer from the cow JBX Fantasy and sire Red Smokewhich is known, among other things, for hisred factor influence on subsequent generations.

Mr Tillman didhis own embryo transfer work, the skills gleaned from his dairy days, and chose a line of grade Charolais heifers from Bonalbo as recipients.

“I used Charolais because they can handle the bigger calves and the bigger frames,” he said.

In saying that Mr Tillman spent a lot of time researching his Canadian genetics to produce a moderately framed animal to suit Australian conditions.

“It took me two years of research before I selected a cow and sire,” he said. “I look back seven generations before I buy.”

Mr Tillman acknowledged Canadian genetics were the most advanced in the world.

“I believe Australia is 15 years behind Canada,” he said.“It’s the same with the dairy game. But we’re getting closer.

Mr Tillman’s first foray into beef builds on experience learned in the dairy industry –which goes back on his mother’s side of the family to the South Coast and prior to that back in England.

“I left dairying in 2000 and sold out just in time,” he said, recalling how much he enjoyed breeding Holsteins. “You could say I’ve gone from milk to beef.”

Mr Tillman, who had help from Mitch Dundas in preparing the winning carcase steer, said he chooses his next generation of Charolais based on their correlation of parts.

“I make an assessment at four weeks old and I stick with that,” he says. “And I rarely gowrong.”

“Width equals meat so I look for eyes wide apart and a wide muzzle. That to me will be the best calf.”

Mr Tillman says judging the best animal is the same whether it’s a dairy cow, a dog, cat, bull or a chook.

“A wide muzzle and good open nostrils means that animal will take in more feed more easily.”
