Goulburn and district hasn't experienced anything like the rainfall in the state's north but graziers have welcomed the good, steady drop.
The city itself has received 40mm since Thursday, with 32.8mm of that falling on Sunday, according to the Bureau of Meteorology. It brings this month's total to 105.6mm, taking airport and TAFE readings into account. Since the start of the year, Goulburn has received 264.6mm.
Grazier Guy Milson, Cardross, some 10km west of Goulburn, registered 40mm across the weekend, on top of 74mm the previous week.
"It's unbelievable conditions and I haven't seen anything like it in my 42 years here," he said.
"...It sets us up and that's the great thing. It's mother nature's way of balancing the books."
The property runs sheep, cattle and cropping. It has already received 355mm this year, well on the way to its 686mm rainfall average. Soil is showing a full moisture profile.
Mr Milson said the drop would bring forward cropping normally undertaken in May.
The Wollondilly River flowing through Cardross was flowing steadily but he expected more to come down from the Roslyn area as the day progressed.
"We are just being very nimble and flexible in the timing of what we do because we haven't seen conditions like this before," Mr Milson said.
"...It's great for the sector and shows people who want to invest in agriculture that there is a future, and young people that there are jobs in the field."
Meantime, Angus Gibson recorded 47mm across the weekend at his Tirranna property 7km southeast of Goulburn. A further 17mm fell during the week, bringing this year's total to 259mm. The holding runs runs fat lambs, cattle and crops.
The Mulwaree Ponds running through the property is holding steady. However Mr Gibson moved lambs to higher ground several days ago as a precaution.
"We have a full soil moisture profile. It's fantastic and it's as good as it's been for some time," he said.
While the rain could pose challenges for crops and spraying, Mr Gibson said he'd rather be dealing with those rather than last year's conditions.
At Inverary Park, 7km east of Bungonia, Philip and Diane Broadhead have been measuring rainfall data for the Bureau for 50 years.
The cattle grazing venture recorded 69.4mm in the five days to Monday, taking March rainfall to 108.8mm and the annual total to 269mm. It is also well on the way to its average annual 600mm fall and dams are filling up. Mrs Moran said it was a welcome change from last year when water from the natural spring running through the property and in dams had dried up.
Elsewhere, Weatherzone recorded 140.5mm for Taralga since Thursday and 360.9mm for the year. This figure, too, is well above the 212.7mm average for the year to date.
While the SES was expecting about 80mm for Goulburn in the 24 hours to Sunday, this was downgraded to about 25mm on Saturday morning. Crews had prepared nonetheless.
The rain is expected to continue on Tuesday, withe a 90 per cent chance of 10 to 20mm, according to Weatherzone.
