OK let's get going ......

I can't actually start working until March at the earliest (I have had to relearn how to walk, gradually take weight on my left hip, and as of yesterday I stopped using crutches!).

But we are starting to plan 2021 and beyond. We have agreed to sell FIDDLELEAF PIPER to Chris Hine at McIntosh Creek Lowlines to use in her embryo programme, which is very exciting. We are also planning of putting FIDDLELEAF RED IVAN over the herd again in Autumn, which should generate some wonderful new calves.

We are still in the process of deciding our cropping programme for 2021 / 2022. After some wonderfully successful ryegrass/oats, mixed pasture and sorghum crops over the last 12 months, we are thinking of being a bit more adventurous. Maybe even trying lucerne again. We'll see. I shall post images of what we plant.
