Up bright and early to the waiting cows. There’s a full day ahead.
Our cows are milked while the sun rises, then it’s off back to the paddock for them as I clean the milking shed.
A hearty breakfast with the family, and the usual excitement to get the kids ready for the day ahead.
After breakfast, the kids are off to school as I head back out to check on the cows.
Cows need plenty of grass to produce quality milk. So I always make sure they’re in lush paddocks.
Time for a well-earned lunch, I can already smell the macaroni cheese cooking
Bit of a chat with the herd as they head in for milking on this stunning afternoon.
The last job for the day is to clean the milking shed, getting it ready for another early morning milking tomorrow.
Dinner together as a family. This is our favourite time of the day.
The kids tucked up nice and early, ready for sleep after a story (or two) from Mum.
Feet up and a cup of tea before we head to bed. Ready to do it all again tomorrow.
