Farming

Trip down memery lane on our farm

Just looking through some old photos and came across these.

This photo was taken in 2004 and its of a Cow and her 3 calves, that is a very rare occurrence !

Nearly all cows have 1 baby a year and occasionally some have twins . We have been farming for 60 years plus and never seen a triplet before or after this one. If memory serves me right these 3 beef calves all did very well.
