We decided to promote one of our heifers from the "meat locker" to the "harem", as she's about the right age for breeding and a nice specimen. So Saturday saw us rounding her up (along with her cousins) in the Nettleden field and taking her to join her aunties (and Norman!) up in Little Gaddesden's Hoo Field. That gives us now 8 breeding cows for next season, and 2 remaining animals for slaughter over the next year until our own home-grown stock comes of age this time next year.
