Glad to see the end of 2011 calving

Nine weeks since the start of our 2011 calving season and we can see the end of what has been a very tiring calving period.

We aim to calve the entire herd down in 7 weeks but this year we had 25 cows due during weeks 8-9.  Ultra sound pregnancy test carried earlier this year show the last few cows we have to calve should have calves on the ground within the next week.

  1. Congrats! Will you be celebrating or just going to bed early for a big sleep ;)?

    Because we’re shifting our calving period by two months, we’re enduring a six-month calving this year – from April to the first week of October. And what a year to do it! I’m green with envy.

      Yes there is a bottle of bubbles ready to go.
      We are also moving our calving, we have been moving earlier for a few years, this year we didn’t change start date just focused on the tail. Joining starts in a couple of days!
