We were incredibly pleased to welcome our new Farm Manager, Bref Daly, back to Sansaw in September and it’s safe to say he has been getting his feet firmly under the table and his wellies out in the grass!
One of his first tasks here at Sansaw was to spend time teaching the team extended grazing techniques to ensure we maximise our use of autumn grass.
Generally, the autumn has gone well and only recently did the farm turn wet so we have managed to do minimal damage to pastures.
The cows were all dried off in mid December and are now enjoying a festive rest in their new sheds.
Other than that, the team has been flat out preparing for the New Year. They’ve cleaned all areas of the farm and caught up on much needed maintenance around the fields to ensure everything is in ship shape for calving and the farm is ready for spring 2021.
