Calving officially reached the half-way point today
It is hopefully auspicious that our biggest ever bull calf was born this morning exactly making the half-way point in our calving period. After a brief spell of R&R mothers and babies are released from their winter quarters into luscious green fields of grass bursting with goodness. One of the delights at this time of year is to see our cows and calves turned out after their time indoors and their delighted reactions.
What a lovely time of year with new born calves and lambs cavorting around the fields enjoying their freedom and, this year, a very mild and sunny April and May. Such a shame that COVID-19 restrictions have meant that we have no holiday cottage guests to witness these magical moments.
