Some long overdue updates

January on-farm meetup, our May on-farm meetup, and a trip to the UK Open Day 2024

January on-farm meetup held

In January, despite the rain and the cold, the on-farm meetups continued. A warm welcome was provided by Jim & Elaine Corby to the club members that attended. It was a chance to breathe before calving and view the new calf shed, enabling a discussion on calf rearing infrastructure and animal and farmer comfort and ease.

At the AGM in December it was put to the almost 30 members in attendance if these on-farm meetups should continue and the response was a unanimous YES!

Next stop for the on-farm meetups is Butlerstown, Waterford to chat with Richard Mahony and his family about the Shangan Herd. These morning conversations are great opportunities to tease out challenges and plans with likeminded club members and neighbours in a relaxed and supportive setting.
