    2 sim x lim and...
    a red cow, on the permit as shorthorn, but it looks more like luing or galloway? UK5 number
    a black cow, on the permit as lim, but also looks more like a luing or Galloway?

    Have they been on slats much?would like to put them on slats for a week or two till they fill up but we don't want to risk it if they are always on cubicles?

    Goood Jaaaab!!! And get a phew photo's posted up here so we can all keep up with the progress!!!!!!!!!
    Did you source any stock from the South? I was down in Co. Monaghan with a neighbour looking at ICH's for him to buy, they originally came off a farm in Cork then the guy who is selling them now reared them and got them in calf to a British Friesian bull. Lovely looking heifers, due end of this month/beginning of next month, I think they were around 1400 yoyo.

    I was disappointed that they didn't do one of those photos showing you shaking hands with the purchaser of the animal, while the auctioneer looked on!!! Just goes to prove the old adage though, the paper refuses nothing!!

    There's a top Scottish herd to disperse in Carlisle at the start of April (part 1). Any purchases would not be over until may. Very high yields and good type. Genuine herd. Well worth a look!
