Dugan was helped from the field midway throughthe second half on Wednesday after a hardcollision with Maroons centre Greg Inglis and did not return.

Coach Laurie Daley said the injury“could be serious” post-match andDugan confirmed the worst for Dragons fans via Twitter on Thursday, tweeting:“Scans showed a broken jaw, surgery to put a plate in tomorrow! Will be doing everything I can to get back ASAP for the dragons”.

Inglis will miss three weeks for the shot after pleading guilty to a grade two charge for leading with his shoulder.

It’s proveda double-blow on Thursdaywith Benji Marshall also ruled out of Friday’s clash with the Titanswith the re-occurrence of the hamstring injury that’s kept him out ofseven of 17 matches this season.

“Unfortunately Benji has pulled up with some hamstring tightness and given his history we think it best he be rested,” Dragons head of medical and performance Tony Ayoub said.

“Benji had trained earlier on in the week but club medical staff thought it best he not play so that he can focus on continuing his rehabjj.

“It is no secret that this would have been his 250th first-grade game but the important thing now is that when he does return and reach this milestone he is playing at a hundred per cent.”

With the Dragons top-eight chances on a knife-edge, the loss of his two major attacking aces is a major headache for coach Paul McGregor.

Tim Lafai, who was set to play for the Illawarra Cutters this week, appears the man most likely to earn a recall for Friday’s clash with Gold Coastwith either Kurt Mann or Jason Nightingale to shift to fullback.

Experienced head Josh McCroneis the man most likely man to replace Marshall while young-gun Drew Hutchison is also an option.

TweetFacebookCentre manager Dwight Hodgetts said getting the chain, which has more than 4000 stores worldwide,to establish an outlet at Charlestown as part of the shopping centre’s “remix”was a retail coup.

“From the moment we announced H&M was coming to Newcastle, social media went into a frenzy, and that just validated straight away that we knew this was a great retailer and the market wanted this retailer at Charlestown Square,” he said.

“They are an international, iconic fashion brand. They take the latest fashion from the runway and they bring it to market very quickly, and it’s affordable, great prices.”

Lake Macquarie mayor Jodie Harrison, who was in the crowd looking on, said the arrival of the store, which has employed more than 80 people, was good for the region.

“This is really great for jobs in Charlestown, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter. It’s a real show of confidence by a major retailer in the economy of this area,” she said.

Shoppers streamed into the store as the doors were opened, with many making a beeline for the $4.95 specials racks, which included skinny jeans, tracksuit pants, women’stops and men’shoodies.

Amid the frenzy, several Pokemon Go fans were spotted in the act of catching the virtual beasts in store.

Goats supplement station clip

PASTORAL COUNTRY: Byron and Kristina Crawford, and daughters Ella and Hanna, run 6500 Merinos on Weekeroo Station, north of Manna Hill. They also muster and sell feral goats to supplement their wool income.WHILE wool is the main focus at Weekeroo Station, north of Manna Hill, wild goats have provento be a valuable income sourcealongside the Merinoenterprise.

Byron Crawford, the fourth generation of his family on Weekeroo, wife Kristina and daughters Ellaand Hannasell about 3000 goats a year.

“This year, the goats have been worth more than the sheep. It’s a handy source of income,”Mr Crawford said.

The feral goats flourish in the hill country on Weekeroo Station. Mr Crawford said they werereasonably easy to muster and were sent to abattoirs, or a depot, in Broken Hill, NSW, which pay on liveweight.

Population numbers have remained steady in the Crawfords’ time on the 43,000-hectare station, with arecent boom in goat meat prices anddemand boosting the station’s bottom line.

The goats require no care and Mr Crawford said their average carcaseweight had been 12 kilograms to15kg.

Weekeroo is also home to 6500 Merinos, including 1000 wethers – which are run in the hills – and 100 rams, with theirwool sold through auctions.

“Our sheep are non-mulesed so we offer (wool)before the auction to some people that are interested in specifically non-mulesed,”Mr Crawford said.

“We haven’t had any problems with flies, we’ve been trying to breed plain sheep.”

Different shearing time frames have been trialed by the Crawfords and they have settled on an annual shearing in October.

“We started off doing it every six months, then every eight months and now we’re just going to do it every 12 months,”Mrs Crawford said.

Mr Crawford said there were benefits associated with six-month shearings but good seasons were required to make it viable.

“In a poor season you wouldn’t get50-millimetre combing wool, you’d be back into cardings,”he said.

“But when you havea dry year shearing takes a load off the sheeptoo.”

The Crawfords employ a contract shearing team whichusually takes a week to complete the job.

Mr Crawford said their wool was down to about 19 micronand they don’t want to go any finer, but they mainly select rams on the style of wool and frame.

Mr Crawford said fat yield measurementwas another major focus.

Lambing started in late May on Weekeroo, with Mr Crawford predicting an average lambing period.

“It’s been pretty dry leading up to it but these last couple of rains will help,”he said.

“The fact we’ve had a bit of rain means the ones on the ground should survive.”

The Crawfords said there was variability in their lambing percentage, estimating they average 70 per cent though they would push for more than 80pc.

Young family loves Weekeroo lifestyleWORKING on a station is far from just a means of making income for the Crawfords –it’s a way of life.

The Broken Hill, NSW, area has been home to the Crawford family for generations.

“My great-grandfather had a butcher shop in Broken Hill and he bought two of the original pastoral leases in the district and divided it all up, sold a fair bit of it and gave the rest to his six kids,”Mr Crawford said.

Weekeroo is the last property remaining in the family and Kristina and Byron agreed the lifestyle was what they relished most, and was ideal for raising children.

“The challenges and the variety of the work is what I enjoy,” Mr Crawford said.

Another issue the Crawfords constantly contend with is water.

They have severaldams but mainly utilise bores and have changed to solar pumps and improved their pipeline systems to contend with dry seasons.

“It feels like we spend a lot of time checking waters and fixing various water problems,”Mr Crawford said.

“Our main focus has been to make the water system more reliable and spread waters out.”

Mr Crawford also said labour hadbecome harder to find, though he remainedpositive about the future of agriculture and the family’s future on the station.

“I think the future of agriculture, in the long-term, is pretty good because the population is growing and we need to feed and clothe people,”he said.

“We’re pretty happy with what we’re doing and hope the girls will be interested in it so we can pass it on.”

Rockhampton Grammar School headmaster Dr Phillips Moulds said the agriculture program the school offers is structured so that students get a broad understanding of what the agricultural space provides.At the Emerald Grow Queensland Forum, Rockhampton Grammar School headmaster Dr Phillips Moulds detailedthe schoolsagriculture program which is proving to be highly successful.

He said theprogramis structured so that students get abroad understanding of what the agricultural space provides, because there are lots of different areas they can enter and be successful in.

The school runs the course in partnership with AgForce, who own Belmont Station situated near Rockhampton, and the students in the Certificate III in Agriculture program go out there two days a week.

“The reason why Belmont is really important is that rather than doing agricultural science in a hobby space in town, they’re out on a real working property, doing things on ameaningful scale and learning things in that setting that they can take back to their family farms,” he said.

He said students learning a variety of skills at Belmont involving flood mitigation, breeding programs, workplace health and safety practices, how to erect a fence, earth moving, and transporting livestock between properties just to name a few.

“The courseprovides the bredth of scope and depth necessaryso that students understand the important facets within agriculture regarding the business side of thingsand the skills required, but also an understanding of the attitudes and behaviours that they need to have to succeed.

“Its not just about equipment andstock, it’s about beingpersistent, and being able to understand that they may learn something, and then in three years time have to learn something different in that same area, because the technology has changed.”

Dr Moulds said the partnership withAgForceis in placefor another five years from 2016, and is something he wants to seecontinue to develop and grow.

“I’d like to see arural leaders initiativegrow out of the program where we would get kids from throughout Queensland coming together to discuss leadership ideas not just around agricultural science but also rural communities as they’re going through school to prepare them for the future.

“It’s a great model where you have a peak industry body and an educational institution working together to develop our kids agricultural employment prospects and giving them a certificate that is recognised Australia-wide.”
