Calving – very good calving season.18 calves born including 2 sets of twins. Sadly one of them died as it was being born backwards and did not survive. But the other pair are absolutley beautiful. Their mother has a white face and her two calves are the same: big panda faces! To my horror when I looked in their pen this morning after the bedding straw had been blown out from the machine one of them was missing! There was a big panic on until fortunately he was found alive and well sitting round the back of one of the cattle courts. As the bedding builds up at this time of year some naughty calves like to escape through the barriers and explore the world. So he was very relieved to be reunited with his cow.
