In Your Field
February began with a night of celebrations as my YFC club, Lowick, reached 60 years young. I am getting a bit long in the tooth to be an official ‘Young Farmer’ but I am still a Lowick member at heart.
We have gone clear on our latest TB test, spring is coming, equestrian clients are coming back to Kelsall Hill and soon the grass will be growing. It is an exciting time of year as we gear up for a new equine event and hopefully better tactics to cope with the inequitable share of the margin which is available on milk.
Those of you who have contributed to regular columns will appreciate the alarming frequency with which the deadlines seem to come around. On occasions it can be quite challenging to find something ‘newsy’ to write – particularly in my situation – as the wife of a ‘hill peasant’ – when in the winter months life can seem like a repetitious cycle of sheep, then sleep.
