We have had a fantastic sunny visit to Boundary Farm today! We were lucky enough to meet a calf that was only 5 days old! We saw how quickly calves grow between 5 days, 7 weeks, 4 months then we saw 2 year old full size cows who were carrying their babies!
We learn what the cows eat and found out about grass silage and maize silage and how it is made (it smelt very strongly!)
We visited the milking parlour and learn how the cows are milked. We also got to see a robotic milker in action!
We are very grateful to Farmer Richard and Farmer Rachael for taking the time to show us round and we look forward to sharing our photos and learning with everyone in assembly on Monday next week.
