where we live on our horse Ranch 5 hrs sth west of Sydney, we can get temp. between 56c - 58c in one day during summer, last summer lasted 6 months.  They don't report those temps on the nightly news, oh no, they give the usual bull poop from the shaded vented boxes in the nearest town.  Usually the nearest airport.

58 celsius is 136 degrees fahrenheit; I hope you have a lot of shade and a lot of water for your livestock  :o 6 months of that must have toasted everything in your area

Here in the US the normal official temperature for larger cities will be at the airport, and must be taken in full shade  8)

Since it is mid-summer here, it should be mid-winter for you? How are your winter conditions in your area?

If we want to compare temperatures (like anything else) we need to get the temperatures in the same way, and the standard way is to have the thermometers 1.25 metres above ground, not in direct sunlight, protected from rain.

It's easy to make one if you want it. :)
