FARMING MATTERS: Preparing for lambing time

At this time of year we are preparing for the start of lambing, so very soon my husband will be gathering up our small flock of Texel ewes and transporting them via the Land Rover and livestock trailer to another field where there is a shed.

FARMING MATTERS: Farming in the news

In the early years of our marriage my husband was a regular reader of The Farmers Weekly. I even glanced at it myself as there was a section in the back aimed at farmers’ wives. In fact if truth be told, I studied it more before we were married, as I tried to work out what qualities were required in a farmer’s wife, not that it gave me much confidence, as I didn’t seem to possess any of them.
