We in the farming community are lucky enough to spend most of our working days outside; open to the elements, with fresh air and sunshine on your back (sometimes!), what could be better? However, during this turbulent year many people have had to endure extended periods of time indoors, or at the very least restricted in their movements and activities. So, spare a thought perhaps not only for them but also for your winter-housed cows. Lush grass and roaming the field margins are a thing long forgotten by now and it is vitally important that during the long winter months your stock is provided with an optimum environment in which to live, thrive and perform.
Our December newsletter looks at the importance of FOOD, WATER, LIGHT, AIR, CREATURE COMFORTS and of course(!) SOCIAL DISTANCING.
