An introduction...

So here we are my first foray into the world of blogging. First things first i need to thank my little sister for setting all this up for me!! She really is super talented and you can see her blog here.

I am very fortunate to be a young(ish) farmer based in Norfolk working the family farm. I have a herd of cattle a few pictures of which i have put below,

they are Red Polls which are the regional native breed of Norfolk. I started the herd in 2007 with 50 head and now have 116. All the male stock are fattened and sold to a local bucher at around 2 years old and the heifer calves stay in the herd.

The plan is to keep increasing the herd and I look forward to blogging about the ups and downs of this journey.

I hope that this blog will give me a chance to vent my opinions on all things agricultural and to share the process of the life of a Norfolk farmer.
