All winter cereals are now in the ground – we finished on 10th October and have gone in very well. Germination has been good.
My wife persuaded me to go on a director’s meeting in a foreign country which was a lovely change from the UK. It was good to get some sunshine before the onset of English winter weather.
Autumn calving has gone reasonably well with the purchase of easy calving bulls showing their worth. Performance figures and genetics are so important when selecting stock bulls.
We have been busy getting 3 bulls ready for the Brecon Sale on 11 November – Killerton Milton, Killerton Mo, Killerton Malachite.
I had the privilege of judging the Cornwall Calf Show. It was a shame there were not more cattle to judge – primarily due to the silly DEFRA 6 day rule and TB since entries. Well done to all exhibitors in the continental section.
Time of year has come – Shooting season has started. Lovely to see other areas of the countryside and meet new people.
