Firstly I must apologise for the Temperature on the weather report as we have suffered a sensor failure and as yet have been unable to replace it.
The month was however dry with only 35mm of rain.
The weather has seen gales of a greater strength than last month and this picture is of a large Ash tree felled by the gales and completely blocking the road.
This picture is looking towards Middlewich and as you can see is causing chaos for the pickup and lorry driver as when I pictured them the road had not yet been closed.
Repairs continue and this month has seen us fitting a new clutch into the Universal tractor and also re-building the old grab.
Andy Green made up the new base and Simon and I welded it on and fitted the tines. It should give some years more service now.
3 more calves this month 0ne Angus male and one Angus female together with one Black and white female all doing well and actually living outside on the Orchard with their mothers.
The last two weeks of March have seen Lee and Ryan from Middlewich High School with us on their works experience.
Here they are fencing on the Key Field paddocks as I am hoping to let some cows out soon.
We have also spent some time logging ready for next winter.
This month’s then and now is looking at how milk was cooled in 1940.
Finally we have had reports of sightings of a strange animal here at Greenheyes, see our nature report for details.
