In Your Field
Well it has been a busy four weeks since our last article, and it just seems like yesterday. The weather too has continued in the same form, allowing most people to make crop in good conditions and hopefully have full pits of silage and barns of hay.
Our first cut of haylage for the year has finally come to an end. The weather held up and we managed to cut and bale nearly 49 hectares (120 acres) of haylage and 16ha (40 acres) of hay for the horse market in glorious sunshine without a drop of rain landing on any of it.
It is July and, for us, our hill gathering weekend on Epynt. The ewes have shorn well and the lambs are strong and healthy – we will waste no time getting them back out to the hill later this week.
