Just thought I’d write you all a quick update on whats going on in the world of dairy farming at the moment! We are well into calving and so far so good. The 4am starts have started as we’ve got a bigger milking herd now and we are both enjoying getting stuck in! Joe has calved his first cow!
And I’ve built up some serious muscles lifting all these calves and milking nearly 1000 cows!!
We are still loving it here and the early starts are worth every sunrise! And the beautiful views of the mountains make every day go a little quicker! I’ll leave you with a few more pictures of everything we’ve been up to and some of the team too!! Thankyou once again for reading we miss you all loads.
I’ve also been lucky enough to enjoy a few care packages from home because lets be honest…. nothing beats marmite on toast!
I have better computer access now -thats right I have treated myself to a brand new laptop that will be kept away from all liquids – you’ll all be glad to here I’ve got some progress on my reading challenge… as you can see with all this work I’m not making as quick progress as I used to but I’m still going and hoping I’ll still do a book a week on average by the end of the year!
