News from John and Phil Riley in Cheshire feels like the winter routine.

The decision was made on Friday to keep the cows in. With all the cold and wet weather the cows were starting to make a mess. Our farm is very heavy clay so we can grow grass all summer but when it comes wet the cows can tread up the ground very quickly. The cows are being fed on grass silage and brewers grains. It feels like the winter routine: scraping, feeding, bedding. I am sure we should be moving fences not muck at this time of year.

Lets hope the weather picks up soon as we have maize to sow and first cut silage is normally done in early may !!
