Yesterday afternoon saw lots of excitement here on the farm, Molly, our lovely vet paid us a visit to check on our Highland fold!
There has been a recent case of TB in cattle near us so we have been placed in a radial TB zone meaning that we have had to increase our TB testing for all of our cattle. Yesterday was the first of our six months test, Molly came to perform the tests and will come back at the end of the week to assess the results. We had a few nervous patients, but we got through it in the end! Hamish, our stock bull, was definitely the star of the day as he was so beautifully behaved!
We also PD tested (pregnancy tests) at the same time and we were thrilled to have everyone in calf apart from Netty, who had been a late calver anyway so she will be put back in with Hamish!
A big thank you to Molly and her team for making everything easy and looking after our Highlands' so well!
