This one day course will give you the opportunity to consider what it really means to have cattle of your own. We will cover finding and selecting the right cow(s) for you, getting ready to bring your first cow home and settling them into their new routine, the daily routine and other less regular tasks, keeping yourself and your cows safe, essential equipment, cattle housing and muck management, when to bring in a specialist, breeding, calving, Bovine TB, handling and moving your cattle, feeding, the healthy cow, cattle passports, ear tagging, and other legal requirements and record keeping. Much of the day will be spent outside with our wonderful suckler herd of Devon Rubies.
