Field work begins – fertiliser is spread on all the grass fields to give it a pre-spring boost. By the end of the month we can sew the spring corn.
The lambs that were born last November are put through the “race”, which weighs them. A lamb needs to weigh 44kg before it can be taken to market.
The corn that was planted last Autumn is sprayed with fertiliser, pesticide and fungicide. The crop lay dormant over the winter, so the fertiliser “wakes it up”.
