Lambing flurries and heavy snowfall hasn’t managed to halt the avalanche of reader photos arriving at Farmers Weekly HQ.
Severe snowfall in recent weeks has made for some stunning snaps, but it is always worth remembering the farmer struggles not shown in the pretty pictures, as they battle to keep livestock safe and roads open for milk tankers and the British public.
We’ve cherry-picked some of our favourite photos sent in over the past few weeks of lambing and the big freeze on the farm.

This is snow easy job. Little farmer Will Loades is giving his sister Louisa a tow as they work on clearing the drive. We love the matching outfits.
Ever think livestock look like their farmers? That’s certainly the case here with Sarah Devlin Stafford and one of her newest arrivals on the farm.
