A common misconception is dairy farmers are tied to their farms and never get away. Like many people running a small businesses it can be difficult to get away from a dairy farm but it is a high priority for us. Returning home just before Good Friday to take back the reins for the Easter holiday period I think we even managed to luck the best couple of weeks of weather so far this year. This year for the first time in a few years now not a single cow/farm/Nuffield visit for the entire holiday.
Now we are back refreshed and ready to get back to work there are lots of jobs to get done on the farm before the cows begin to calve in early June.
