In Your Field
It is an odd thing to say given this month’s news, but our herd is expanding again as 70 home-reared, pedigree Brown Swiss heifers calved over the Christmas period. Santa brought some kick bars and I am sure the herd manager and his colleagues were delighted with the extra burden of training these young ladies, but they seem to be settling in well.
