The feeling among the farmers is they've been forgotten, as they face the challenge of trying to make their sodden paddocks productive. 

The Government have put aside $300,000 to help farmers hit by the floods. 

Farmer Jill Langdon says that money is not enough.

She says although they are grateful for the $10,000 they received it's "a drop in the ocean ... a pretty insignificant amount compared to what we have to spend to get the farm up and running again."
