    :tt2: Its actually a 10 litre paint bucket. I think a lick bucket is 12.5 litres, oil drums 20 litres and the old style oil drums are 25 litres I think.

    Ah, they would be a bit all over the shop. The calving would be an on going event.
    They could have them inside in July

    Great weather on cattle outside. The cows wouldn’t get out of your way this morning they’re so content. 3ACDD955-EA50-4087-B148-FEF13E911381.jpeg 759764AC-F7F8-4CEC-A6B8-BA3C7CC266A9.jpeg BA9A7968-F28C-4BE1-AC05-F21A2B31649D.jpeg

    Should be in the thread enquiring about comfy mattresses.

    There's more to farming than economics. A lot to be said for having them comfortable and content

    Lot of Montbelliarde breeding there!

    The standout start would have to be the calving interval I would think.
