Comments: The Herbert mills crushed almost 202,000 tonnes of  cane for the week and have now passed the  milestone for the first million tonnes crushed for 2021. More than a quarter of the newly re-estimated Herbert  crop has now been processed. There was an increase of 0.34 of a unit in CCS for the  second consecutive week in a row to take the season to-date average to 12.37 units. Victoria’s B-side mill had a 12-hour scheduled  maintenance stop during the week.  This week, Victoria’s A-side mill will have a 12-hour  maintenance stop on Tuesday 10 August. Macknade  Mill will have a scheduled four-hour shredder  maintenance stop on Wednesday 11 August. There was a near hit between a lime truck and a cane  train on the weekend. The truck undertook an  emergency stop at a level crossing, causing its trailer  to overturn. We once again appeal to all road users to approach  level crossings with caution and always give way to  cane trains.
