I’m watching this an I’ve got hundreds of cattle an if I saw those barstewards treating my animals like that I’d be kicking them around the fecking floor!! Totally disgraceful, an I’m not soft or daft but that kind of treatment is totally unnecessary an puts every farmer with stock in a bad light!!

On PM dear old Auntie was trying to move the agenda along to the seperation of dairy cows from their calves and how the cows are stressed.

I have beef cows and I seperate the cows and calves after 10 months together and that stresses me out with the noise

At 10 Months? We do about the same, just done a batch at 11 months. Cows were glad to see the back of them😂
