All things Dairy

I don't think I'm quite brave enough to take her off farm yet 😂 Lovely herd of limos, we were pedigree for a while but dad got fed up with the paperwork! My grandad always promised me for my 18th he would take me up to one of the national shows, he never made it unfortunately but one of my long term aims is to one day make it up to one of them with a show team 😀

we used to do all the local shows as well as the royal show and take a few upto the Smithfield show and usually would sell the bulls up at Carlisle,dispersed the whole herd at Carlisle in 96 to start dairying


I knew my day was going far too well and I was having far too much fun 😂😂😂

Autumn block looking good and hopefully starting to tighten things up. I’m told buy my man yielding the AI gun we’ve had a 86% submission in the first cycle. Had a peak at the list that’s not been served and at least half of them calved in December, so don’t think we are doing too bad, but it’s still all a bit new to me and my targets are just to do the best we can 🤣
