We have managed to keep the milking herd out at grass over the last few weeks with the weather drying up a bit at last.

We have over half of the herd dried off now, with a few more going on their holidays every week. Numbers are reducing quickly, which is helping to take pressure off ground. The rest of the herd will continue to be milked once a day up to Christmas, when we will dry off fully and take a break for a month before they start calving again.
