March on the farm

Posted by on Apr 11, 2013 in Farm, Livestock, Sheep

Lambing started in earnest at the beginning of March and the weather was reasonable. The weather deteriorated rapidly and got increasingly colder and wetter.  However on the whole we have been very lucky and we missed out on the heavy snowfall thankfully.  Calving has progressed well with lots of calves waiting to go out onto some green grass!

Barley was drilled on the 26th of March, which was later than usual.    The weather still remains extremely cold and the grass growth is nil.
