Farm Diary

The Villager

The ewes are grazing stubble turnips at present. These were sown in September and provide fresh feed now that the grass has little nutritional value. The sheep initially eat the green leaves but then learn that the turnips themselves are preferable being sweet and tasty providing high sugar and therefore energy levels.
