Doesn’t time go quickly. In 2010 I wrote saying that the winter of 2010 would the be last winter we had a herd of milking cows on the farm. I was saying goodbye to the slow old cows.
It was a complete change. No cows to milk twice a day. No herd of cows to walk in an out of the fields in summer.
The farm has changed completely. We don’t have to have fences to keep the cows in. We don’t have to have as many grass fields.
We got to know the milking cows because they were here for quite a few years – and they got better looked after than I did! It was there home.
But, we couldn’t make any money. The price of milk we were being paid was too low.
