  1. When we got up this morning and there was a cowpat in the front porch we figured something was wrong.
    Cue a thrilling session chasing 4 jersey cows and a Hereford bull around the yard in the dark.

    Still haven't found the pin for the gate.

    Eventually got to the horse spot, did a bit of this


    And dug some holes to pour some foundations for a tank support.

    Had a Nissan terrano on the trailer coming home, they're bloody heavy, I had to find 1st gear three times on Sutton bank...

    That’s going very well so far, 960 hrs since September. Better on the drill and plough than the Cat and much better on fuel all round. Although today the Cat would of been better at crossing over veg beds but with it being wet it would of struggled for grip and skated all over the place.

    Nothing except we outgrew them (had six)... and constant alarm calls
    And running costs
    And cost f expansion on robots as it’s one machine plus 60-70 cows rather than dribble them on on a parlour/rotary

  10. How longs a piece of string

    Need pictures and a bit of history
    But even then it's hard to put a retail price on in

    Just the usual boring day to day jobs. Strawing the cow shed

    This one has a lovely coat of straw to keep her warm:D 100_2349.JPG

    Bale of straw into the cow cubicles today. Bloody midi hestons! One day I will finish the cladding at the back of the shed. It's only been about 4 months since I put the doorway in at the back though:rolleyes::ROFLMAO: 100_2354.JPG

    Another bale for the little heifers we keep at our neighbours place 100_2356.JPG

    We had issues with high cells when we first started part loose housing them but got it cracked now by tweeking the layout plus wiping the dirty ones off once a day and taking the hose pipe to any filthy udders completely covered to keep them clean. Cell count has actually been the lowest we've ever had this current year. Rolling 12 month average of 79. Having much more of an issue with teats being trodden on. 2 more 3/4 cows so far this winter:cry:

    I think he was refering to restoration. Surely pictures and a detailed explanation required for even a ballpark price!
