New arrivals on the farm - meet the new steers!
We welcomed some new arrivals last week from nearby Bainham. We found out that some of them had actually been born on the farm! But what is a steer anyway?? Watch these videos as Steve explains.
Cow Mastitis therapy with Marie-Laure
When the vet visited, this mama cow was not given a good prognosis. She has had great care - antibiotics and anti-inflammatories, homeopathics, herbal ointment, Qi therapy and scenar therapy administered by Marie-Laure. This was the first time she had worked with a cow! Amazing work from the farm team. She is doing pretty well now.
A fine example of selfless giving from this mama cow!
The unexpected pregnancies on the farm over the last couple of months have kept Steve and Jackie busy!
The calves have been frisking away, enjoy a good back scratch and some new farm hands have had some training in moving cattle...
And just for the sake of it ... a beautiful picture of cows and view!
