It’s Maggie Moo here again.
Isn’t the weather fabulous? We have been basking in wonderful sunshine for the last week. It makes such a nice change after having to go back into the sheds last week.
We’re on a field called ‘The Banks’, so called because it was used for open cast mining here years ago so had many many holes in it! The banks refers to all the holes not a ready supply of money. The first Sixsmith to this [...]
It’s Maggie Moo here again – did you know it was my birthday recently? I’m a year old now and in a year’s time I’ll be having my first calf!
All the yearlings are over on the outfarm, we are in a huge red roofed shed, the bullocks in one half and the heifers in the other. We have cubicles to lie down on and quite tasty silage [...]

There’s been lots of things happening on the farm too – some [...]
