and it keeps getting wetter.
The rain came like the weatherman predicted.The fields are a wash and it keeps getting wetter.There doesn't seem to be an end in sight to the wet weather !! The cows seem quite content being inside but it is now starting to cost us as we are having to buy silage in as well as bedding.
When we wrote our 'about' we said that we would share the highs and lows of our dairy farm. Yesterday was definitely a low as we were told that our milk buyer will be dropping our milk price by 2 pence a litre from the beginning of May.This will have a big impact on our business this year. Our consultant came today to run through the budget for this financial year and the price drop has knocked a big whole in our bottom line.It seems very unfair that your milk buyer can give you just 3 days notice of a price change yet you must give them 12 months notice if you want to leave !!!
