    Hello!


    CALF REARING HAS STARTED!! WE ARE AIMING TO REAR 700 THIS YEAR.

    We are a family of 4, our children are 9 and 6, with a couple of friendly dogs and a lazy cat!
    We live in a quiet rural area, but only a short drive to civilization (Te Awamutu).
    We rear calves July-November, but also have older stock that we take care of.
    There is always lots to do!
