Enhancing The Milking Bay

Posted on: Wednesday, September 16th, 2009 in: Buildings, Cows

With all the rain we got over Winter it was painfully obvious that we needed a floor on the milking bay.  This would solve at least two problems – the cows would no longer be knee deep in mud while we (ie. Sharon) were trying to milk, and they would (hopefully) be less hesitant to […]
