on farm movements

Today Jethro is weaning some of this year’s calves and moving some of the cows and one of the bulls to their winter grazing 3 miles away, we have a lorry booked to come in to take them. The driver’s first task will be to fetch the store cattle and few heifers back as we swop them all over. The store cattle will then go in the shed for the winter.

The rams are also going out today, lambing will be due to start on April 14th, but in reality the lambs always begin to come 2 or 3 days earlier.

The pig is much better, so much better in fact that she has made it quite clear to Jethro that she does not want any more antibiotics thank you, however he told her in the gentlest way possible, sorry you must finish the course. Meanwhile her sister is still a lady-in-waiting, which is not helping my early hours insomnia as I have to go and look in my pyjamas, just in case.
