When there is a little surplus milk I like to make some cheese for the table. Generally a simple farmhouse cheese that is sort of a half fetta - half cream cheese.
Another fencing project is the stockyard area that attaches to the dairy. It was becoming more of a suggestion than an order and it was only a matter of time before some over-excited steer or overly greedy dorper went right through.
Replacement of the fencing with good wire and solid board sections, setting the new loading ramp into place and adding a number of gates has made it a series of yards that can be used to draft out groups of animals and load any size truck or trailer and even a horse float.
