Handling Pens

Very impressed with the new handling pens which have just been completed for the galloways – until now I’ve had no way of working with the heifers, but now they will be wormed and fluked before autumn comes in (more on this to come).

Of course it goes without saying that even these tiny pens were staggeringly expensive, and the cost of hardwear and robust infrastructure is one of the most off-putting factors to discourage people from getting cows, particularly in the hills where they are most needed. The cows have been quiet on this blog over the past few months largely because they have simply been idling along, slowly growing and maturing into fine new shapes.
