The cows were finally allowed to move into their new winter quarters over the weekend. This is the first new shed on this farm for 40 years, so it felt rather a special occasion to us all.
A youngster is due any day soon, so it will now be able to arrive in the warm and dry.
I've attached some pictures of the shed just before they entered, a couple on their way in, and one settling in, it didn't take long.
The young stock will be coming in later this week.
We are very proud of our herd, we take a lot of pleasure turning out nice cattle, not just to look at though, to eat as well. Unfortunately this is becoming increasingly more difficult to achieve with new rules constantly being introduced and moving the goal posts ever closer for us. For the dedicated few that care about where there food comes from and like true traceability, and the knowledge of knowing that their meat is reared in the conventional natural way, I fear may not always be able to be realised.
