Over the past few days my family have been on the farm helping with the calves and I thought that I could create a video of the style of farming like:
- The tanker what collects the milk
- Maze to feed the cows
And of course "THE PAYOUT" The pay out is important to Farmers because it is how the milk is valued and at the moment it is very low.
So far we have had over 300 cows in and still 600 more to calve. We have got 100 keepers, 24 Jersey Bulls and about 176 bobbies.
The milk tanker comes every 4 milkings to collect the milk and take it to the factory to be stored and put into milk bottles that soon go into stores.
We feed our calves Meal, Powder , Hay and of course Milk. We feed the calves Gold milk and other sorts of fresh milk that our farm produces. The most calves we have had in a day this year is 80. 50 bobbies and 30 keepers.
