Grass cutting

As the days get shorter the cows have less fresh grazing.  Dad and Graham, the herdsman, get around this by cutting a strip of grass to feed to them each day.  Here’s a quick video (taken by dad multitasking!) cutting some red clover and rye grass for the cow’s supper.

Lely robot at Caerfai.

We have been using the Lely robotic milking machine for just over a year now.  Each cow wears a collar which identifies them – the robot detects whether they need milking or not.  It also holds their personal info (their weight, how old they are, their body stats!)
