Calves to Market
It is with mixed feelings that we watch our cows go off to market. Last Saturday saw the departure on nine Limousin cross calves just under a year old.
Work progresses well on the rebuild of Orchard Cottage with the first fit plumbing and electrical works now completed.
We have had a busy month with the stock here at Mornacott. Our breeding herd have all been examined by the vet to determine when they will calve and we all have our fingers crossed for a successful calving season.
Happy New Year

The festive season is rapidly approaching here at Mornacott and we are well underway with preparations.
