In Your Field
?The weather: I wish I did not have to mention it again but, my God, we had our fair share of rain early this month. We had a day’s rain on Saturday October 4, then 36 hours of constant and, at times, torrential rain on Monday and Tuesday last week.
?The Henderson/CLA share farming initiative is gathering momentum, with a series of three meetings taking place at the local agricultural colleges which John hopes will attract equal numbers of CLA members and students alike.
September is one of my favourite months; the crisp mornings, the bright sunny days and the smell of bloom dip! The breeding sheep sales are a special time of year for me too, with all the hopes of a good trade and anticipation of new arrivals.
