Clyde is saved from "The Ring"
« on: February 14, 2015, 07:40:11 pm »
Absolutely delighted that Clyde has been sold to a breeding herd. When he's weaned in October, he'll be heading off to Wales. So his Sunday tomorrow will be far, far better than it could have been  :thumbsup:

Great news  :thumbsup: ;D
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cow, beef cattle, pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

That is good news - always great if a bull calf with potential can be kept whole.

I always feel a bit guilty when the rings go on the little chaps - seems a shame, but can't keep all of them entire.

Perhaps other Shetland breeders should try the 'time-limited' offer for their good bull calves - might make life a litte simpler.



"Pressure and release" seems to be just as effective on cattle as on horses!
