January Burrumbuttock run shaping up to be best yet

THE legendary Burrumbuttock hay run is on again in January with demand for feed greater than ever before in drought-stricken Queensland.

To find out more about where the giant convoy is heading next year and how you can also help out, editor James Graham caught up with organiser Brendan Farrell on his first long-haul in his new sponsored Coronado from Freightliner for this week's episode of The Big Rigs Podcast. 

Reporter Kate Dodd also spoke to Wagga Wagga truckie Brendon Milliner, a former self-described "solid fella" who decided he needed to drop the kilos and is down 60kg in less than a year. 

Host Kermie also caught up with an old compatriot in David Whyte at the recent Castlemaine Truck Show. Dave used to be a truck mag writer who now does interesting things with Scania.
