Sheep

Beginner Farmer

My first two months back on the farm in pictures and words...black leg, a tragic local farm fire, sheep work, buying cattle at a livestock market, calving, autumn cultivations and a tractor trundle - just a few of the ups and down's of life as a beginner farmer...

Sheep Shearing in the UK

The sheep shearing season in the UK (roughly mid May to mid July) is pretty much finished now, so farmers will be pleased that one difficult and time consuming job is over for another year, and the sheep will be happy to have got rid of their thick fleeces in this hot weather.
