Hello from a very springlike Penrhiw - it's warm - by day - dry, the lambs are gamboling in the fields and even the grass is growing albeit slowly.  Will it be an early spring ??  Winter fodder supplies are going down but no cause for panic yet - an early spring following that wonderful autumn we had will more than makeup for the 2018 harvest shortfall.  Only time will tell but we are hanging on the weatherman's every word !!  At Cefn Coed, Welsh Black heifers and their calves went out a few days ago  -  the calves loved the freedom kicking their heels and playing. 

 
Busy market weekend ahead - Rhiwbina on Friday, Usk and Tonteg on Sat and Riverside on Sunday..
