List your ideas of things to do with your cows on Lock Down

Post by Saffy » Sun May 10, 2020 11:49 am

I will start with. Just spend time with them making them quieter and easier to handle.

By just walking around them more, talking to them, giving them a few extra treats.

Ideas please, with pics if possible...

Trying to get them the right side of the electic fence you are putting up to split the field to get a hay crop some of it.

I really wish someone would order me to stay at home and spend more time with my cows. Instead I am spending twice as long doing half as much which does not even begin to cover the costs of the practice. I hope you are all treating your vets sympathetically.

Halter training is continuing with last year's heifers. Paul bought a sack of carrots before lockdown and has been coming a couple of times a week as his permitted hour of exercise. The field is next to the road so he can visit them at a safe distance from me.
