Autumn sets in

The weather for the last 6 months here at Hoddle has been fantastic for growing grass with a very mild summer and just enough rain to keep the grass ticking along.  With the deciduous trees losing their leaves and a typical foggy autumn morning, the season is changing.

It is time for our cows to start their annual holiday when they get to have a break from milking for around 7 weeks before they calve. The first of the herd is due to calve in early June.
