"Sug, sug, sug. "
Po, po, po"
Also works. Don't know why but the cattle always moo and respond to it. Perhaps I am like Dr Doolittle? I can talk to the animals. They also like it when I bang on the metal bucket like a drum.
I have also had to have to spread 'bag manure' (fertilizer) for the first time in 7 years. A combination of greedy cattle and lack of growth and ("don't say it") RAIN! Means that yonder cattle need fertilizer to make the grass grow.
We also paddocked off a couple of acres to grow more silage. It's supposed to be mad dear this year. Cattle prices are very poor at the moment. I heard of a farmer getting 2 Euros at mart for a Jersey cross dropped calf. And (never start a sentence with and) he would have had to pay the mart commission to sell it. Dairy cross cattle are only making a Euro a kilogram at the moment. That's about forty pence a pound in Sterling. I have decided I will keep my bullocks until they are really big. It's the only way we will get anything for them.
We also set a field of fodder Kale this week. Never grown it before. Have you?
