In Your Field
All our cattle are now housed for winter and nearly all the autumn calving cows have calved – not quite as short a calving period as we would have liked, but we will continue to try to improve it.
As I write the Christmas cake is baking in the oven. The discerning chefs among you will know it is getting late for this, however, better late than never and it is an improvement on last year when concern and preoccupation with farm purchase and tenancy matters resulted in Christmas activity being curtailed.
It has been a busy four weeks and as the shortest day approaches I am in a reflective mood.
