It is now getting to the end of calving and everyone is starting to feel like it’s time for a break away, but that is easier said than done when you still have those last few cows to calve and starting to look towards mating and pre mating heats…… it feels like it’s never ending!
However, no matter what jobs there are to complete it is much more important to be well rested and have a clear head before attending to these jobs, therefore we need to take a break to have a breather and a SLEEP IN!!!
As farmers we live at our place of work and don’t get away, whether it be listening to the rain at night worrying, or the grass not growing fast enough or checking those cows late at night we never really switch off until we get away. So treat yourself out there farmers, a few nights away from that farm for R & R.
