A Week on the Estate: Welcome Rain, Wild Birds & Liberated Reds
We’ve enjoyed a life-affirming week on the estate. Some much needed spring rain gave our crops a good start, while the Lincoln Red herd exchanged their winter quarters for our open parklands with much excitement.
The herd’s exodus from Keal Yard began on Monday, with a family unit of cows and calves headed by Sooty the bull leading the charge, followed later by yearlings and steers. Having found a spot that pleased him, Sooty took the time to bellow at the top of his voice, staking his claim to this corner of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
