The first Aberdeen Angus calf of the year

Here she is. The first calf born this year – the father is a pedigree Aberdeen Angus bull called Rochester! This is his first born calf too. It has to be said he was not paying it much attention this afternoon.

Farmer was cleaning out the cattle shed, stockpiling the dung, which will rot down in a dung heap, for the next 12 months. He will spread it on the 2015 silage ground. Planning ahead for the wild flowers next winter’s food.

Cap, our chief sheepdog, spent the afternoon sitting as still as could be watching a lamb that Farmer has brought in for extra feeding.
