Sam on the Farm - Calving for 2020

We’ve seen some strange times over the past few months, the whole country has been in lockdown, families and friends have been kept apart and our lives have been turned upside down. But in all these uncertain times, we’ve got to try and take whatever positives we can and it’s certainly been a positive time on the farm! The farming calendar carries on, whether there’s a virus pandemic or not and all farmers and people in the agriculture industry have carried on regardless as key workers. There’s certainly been a surge of people wanting to buy produce straight from the farm gate too, whether that be farm shops, butchers or the ever popular raw milk dispensers that more and more dairy farmers are going into. The country has certainly needed its farmers over the past few months, and hopefully that momentum will continue.

The cows have started calving on the farm and this is certainly my favourite time of year. It’s always a worry for me every year, as much as I know the cows will be alright and the little calves will come into the world without much help, it’s always good to be on hand in case there’s any problems, as you’ll see in my latest episode below…

LEAF Education, in partnership with our members, works to inspire and educate future generations about food, farming and the countryside. We work across the education, farming and food sectors to mobilise farmers and educators to bring farming into a learning context and embed an appreciation of farming into everyday life.
