    Young Suckler Cow Down After A Hard Calving

    Now she wont let the damn calf suck - so having to walk her into the calving gate every evening to give the calf a good suck. On top of that, she is the most twisted fudgeer of a cow you ever seen when trying to take her from the field - not wild at all but if she spots an opening she will go...

    Young Suckler Cow Down After A Hard Calving

    Update - day 8 i lifted her outside (walked her slowly with hip lifters). Let her stand with the help of the loader for an hour and i milked her out. Took the loader away and she stumbled about but refused to fall. An hour later she was at the far end of the field grazing. 5 hours later she was...

    Young Suckler Cow Down After A Hard Calving

    Thats the thing she is motivated as hell to get up. God knows how many times a day she tries. To be honest, as a stockman as long as she is healthy otherwise i couldnt give up on her! Pity it wasnt a month later in the year and she could be lifted outside. 20 days - i had said to myself i...

    Flybe Bye Be !

    I have no sympathy - barstewards had a stencil lugage holder - my purpose bought 'small carry on suitcase' that fits onto every other plane on the planet wouldnt fit into their test holder - so they charged £50 extra every time. When i say it wouldnt fit, it was about the width of a hair too big...

    Retained afterbirth, pull, leave or cut off? Graphic picture warning

    I would give it a pull yourself. A slight force should pull it out. If not then you can get the vet. Speaking from experience, 1st time it happened me the vet just pulled it out!! Make sure and inject with antibiotic too

    New shed- all under one roof?

    Just out of interest - if you put up a shed without planning and it goes unnoticed - what is the length of time before it becomes untouchable? 7 years rings a bell? As far as i am aware, in NI if you are within 75m of an existing farm building then you do not need planning
