Most of our cattle are now housed for winter, which allowed us to trial the changes we made for feeding youngstock inside.

Troughs have been set up in the enclosed lying area of the middle pen and calves can access them from each side through new creep entrances. While most of the calves are fitting through nicely, one of our more muscled bull calves managed to get completely jammed at the hips, and to make matters worse, he then sat down on his haunches leaving him stuck fast.
