A Week on the Estate: Laser Shooting, Bottle Deliveries & Boiler Fuelling
In autumnal weather veering from beautifully bright to cold, dark and wet, the South Ormsby Estate continues to be a fine place to live, work, earn and play.
On the land, the Lincoln Red beef herd was pictured enjoying their grazing on a rare, blue-sky day on the estate. Soon, they’ll be moving to their new winter quarters at Keal Yard where they’ll be kept warm and safe during the worst winter weather. At the weekend, three of our finest breeding heifers will be strutting their stuff at the Newark Livestock Sales.
Chris Brooks has been helping out on the estate and getting hands-on with the biomass boiler. In late October weather, the boiler receives one bale of bean-straw in the morning, another at lunchtime and a late-afternoon or evening top-up with wood. The bean-straw is loosely packed and can burn relatively quickly so other options may be explored in future.
