I’m beginning to wonder what time of year it is. Firstly, the weather is so nice, you could easily mistake our current date for the middle of May. I’m sure it will change shortly, but we will enjoy it while we can.

Secondly, and this is a major shock to my system, we are being called to quite a few calvings at the moment. In a predominantly dairy part of the country, it is rare to be called out of bed at this time of year.
