Speaking of cold, the girls are having a lovely time sleeping inside the shed at night. The composting hay floor is working really well, providing insulation from the ground and some extra heat from the composting process. They seem to enjoy it so much that sometimes they lay about sun-baking themselves in the morning sun, and refuse to forage for the green stuff. Too comfortable, I think!
The 18th of June saw the Small Farms Big Ideas Tasman Peninsula workshop at the Copping Hall. I was invited to speak at this workshop, followed by a tour of Leap Farm. I'm working on a summary of the day which I will post soon.
We've already had some new additions to the farm - a couple of months earlier than anticipated (care of some visiting bulls 9 months ago!). We have had 3 calves born, and all 3 are doing well - the mums are happy and there's plenty of tucker on the ground and shelter available for the bad weather days. Such cuties! I am looking forward to seeing the calves sired by our new bull, Hector.
