First Sheep by Motor Truck

4 February 1947 The Tumut and Adelong Times

History was made in Adelong recently when four large transports moved 1,700 sheep belonging to Mr. T. Roche from yards at Mt. Adrah to Wagga saleyards. 

It was the largest consignment of the kind ever to leave the district, and impressed upon local graziers the vital part that road transport plays in present-day stock movements.

According to advice received in Wagga, the sheep were all moved in two shifts, in one afternoon, by three large trucks belonging to Mr. J. G. Tod, Wagga, and one truck belonging to Mr. A. J. Prowse, Adelong.
