My brother-in-law has continued the family tradition for milking, and he farms a herd of red and white dairy Shorthorn cattle in west Wales.
Recently we visited him and his family during a short trip to Wales and we spent a lovely afternoon catching up and exchanging news whilst walking along the cliff tops and through the fields which look out to sea.
My sister-in-law looks after the little calves, and showed me around the farmyard, parlour and calf sheds.
It was a good job we saw so many beautiful dairy Shorthorn cows whilst at my brother-in-law’s farm, because during the hours and hours we drove through Wales my husband was disappointed to see so few cattle.
