In Your Field
Tony Shepherd and John Henderson: Share farming talk a success and spending some quality time with the kids
?John and I were invited to Settle Farmers’ Club the other evening to talk about sharefarming (actually, for once, he did the work and I helped out at questions).
Calving started on February 11 which was a few days earlier than expected, but it has been non-stop since. As I write, we have had 35 cows calved with 38 calves. The twins came early on and all three calved themselves, with all calves living.
William and Andrew Cowx: Farm labour difficult to justify, but consultant helps with business improvements
Our slurry tower is almost overflowing and like many more in the county the only slurry which has been spread this winter has been blown over the hedges.
