This blog once described my veggie garden adventures in suburbia. Now, these city folk have moved to the bush. There will be veggie dramas, encounters with wildlife, efforts at conservation and tales of our local area.
Awww - sweet! We had two new calves at work this morning, and another one any day. Ours are Welsh Black cattle - they're a compact breed that look a lot like your Dexters. Good luck with the new arrival.
I am going to have to loom up Welsh Blacks! I cant wait till Geranium's calf comes! Good luck with your newbies.
OK, I'm about to show my ignorance here. These are beef cattle, right? Not dairy? And what do you feed them? Do they just graze off pasture or do you have to supplement their diet?
Actually Dexters are considered 'dual purpose' - both good milkers and beefy eaters. Dora and Geranium are both a little more diary in type - nice diary hips... but if they have male calves they will make good beefy eaters. That's the plan anyway, but it might be a little tough after we have bonded...
Oh yes. Bonding is a dangerous thing on a farm :( I've been thinking more about your carp - do they really taste that terrible? I'm sure they eat them in some parts of the world.
