What we looking at? I'm assuming it's something to stop calves from suckling. We just parted them. Mary's been a dream, at 8 months she's had enough, Greeny, last year born wasn't even bothering by August (9 month old) and after the TB test, i separated them and neither cared. Offered Mary to her the next day, never sucked, wasn't interested and bag was drying up so thought sod it.

Hannah was 3 week old yesterday and am hoping she'll be the same next year! She's as bad as pups, she has zoomies across the field, currently electric between her and the sheep, only couple more days then they all going together to scrap over the grass!
Halter train the cattle to keep them quiet but watch your back when they come a'bulling! Give them all names even those you plan to eat. Always be calm. Most importantly, invest in wellies with steel toe caps and be prepared for the clever cow who knows where the toe caps end!!

Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing
