    You know you are lambing /calving when?

    Thought I would start this rather continue to hijack the " feck up " thread ( that just took me 3 or 4 minutes to recall the title!) You are eating breakfast when you should be eating dinner and are eating dinner when you should be in your bed. Your child comes home from school and walks in...

    Low tech performance recording

    I’ve got myself some different coloured cable ties, red, blue, green, orange, yellow and purple. I plan to allocate an issue to each colour, try and keep a selection in my pocket and apply to the ear tags of offending sheep over lambing and beyond. So far I’m thinking: Red- mastitis/definite...

    Should I still Bvd cows

    Should I still vaccinate cows or not ? Been closed herd for good few years now only buying bulls in from Bvd negative breeders , annually screen batch of calves, haven’t had it before . Suckler cows. Just think it’s a very expensive thing to do especially if not needed.

    How do you keep and mark keys

    To be able to write on the key fob - is this the only way? The size is 5 x 2 cm which is still too big. The cheap ones dont work and fall apart. The key situation needs attention.
