Last Sunday we took delivery of a dozen weaned calves. They will spend a couple of months in the shed then go out into the fields until October when we will sell them on to other farmers in October. We have no livestock November to January and then start again in February, it works well for us as we both work full time.
No matter how often we have done this there is always a frisson of excitement and anticipation when the calves arrive in their trailer.
They seem to have settled in well, this 'red' and white calf is a bit of a character and was having a good look out of the window!
Brian had a bit of trouble with the silage bale as it was quite soft and wouldn't stay on the spike. However, it is excellent quality and the calves are eating it well.
