Daisy the cow in calf!
Daisy is taken out every day in the morning to graze in the local area and returns at night.
As she is due to give birth to her calf any day, she is now grazing on the fields at Footprints. A new calf for the new year. Fresh milk for the children very soon, excellent news.
Sadly Daisy lost her calf just after it was born, so we will have to wait until she has another calf for fresh milk.
Latest news- Daisy has had another calf, who is healthy and been called Bambi. She was born on the 10th January 2018.
It will be interesting to learn how to manage weening and then milking for use at Footprints. Our self sufficiency mission is certainly evolving.
We'll keep you updated on progress.
