When it rains it pours and I wish that would happen from the clouds!
Over the summer, the farm staff needed to do little to keep the pigs happy and healthy. Five sows and a boar (Boris) spending their days fighting off the heat and wallowing in the mud, a simple task. However, over the past three weeks, our family has grown from six to 38 with three of the sows farrowing; quite a population explosion. The young piglets are extremely cute when they are first born so get down to the farm for a visit as it is all down hill for them in the cuteness stakes.
In other activities, the Lucerne paddock has been cut and hay should soon be made for the use of the Show teams, having the Lucerne short will also allow us to sow some rye grass into the paddock and make it more grazable for the cattle as well as the sheep.
Last week I had a thoroughly enjoyable time talking with the Year 8 students about the goings on on the farm, I hope that they have been inspired to consider a career in agriculture which needs the smartest minds available producing food for the world.
