12 June MOWING COMPETITION John Deere vs. New Holland - monster grass fresh calved cows!

5.27pm - Wednesday 12th June 2024 13,181

Getting some field jobs done with the solis tractor it’s really handy on the log splitter, reusing tin that’s been in storage for 35 years, Carl gets the mowers on and drops all the grass it’s a monster crop wow so long! I move barbed wire and have a secret mowing competition with James next door but he doesn’t even realise!!!! Calves are coming on great but still no jerseys.

in 2009 i had no experience of farming or the realities that came with it. That soon changed when I met my other half Roy, I had a job as a carer and in every spare moment threw myself into farming. I had only ever driven a Nissan Micra and had experience with horses, I learnt the hard way as nobody had the time to show me and soon after arriving I found myself mothering on calves to three quarter bred limmy cows. We spent every available moment on the farm between our day jobs. Fast forward to 2016 two children later we moved into our very own farm overlooking the northern Pennines, Laitha.

we are in a transitional period at present and will finally be milking cows and making the final switch later this year, after years of planning and implementing infrastructure we will be milking 120 Jersey cows on two Lely robots. This will be a huge change and a steep learning curve

I will be taking you all along for the ride so hit that subscribe button and see you every other day for farming vlogs.

I am overjoyed to be a farmer. I feel so fortunate every day to wake up and do what I love and even better share it with the world and hope it inspires more young people from Preston to spread their wings and think outside the box the world doesn’t need more childcare workers or hairdressers it needs more farmers.
