Dairy farm visit

This week the scouts visited a local working dairy farm. On arrival the were shown around the milking parlour, where some of the braver scouts had a go at milking.  They also saw the farm bull.



After this they went around to see 2/3 day old calves. They were able to pet and feed them.

The farm also breeds Clydesdale horses and so the scouts also got to see a Clydesdale foal, a mare and 2 stallions.

 

Finally the scouts amused themselves playing with 3 collie pups and 3 dogs.

Thanks to the McKay family, especially Martin for showing us around the farm.
