We caught up with our lovely Katie from NGS to see what she has been up to this week to discuss a little about our farmers who again, are working around the clock for us and deserve a very big thank you!

'Its been a very busy couple of weeks, isolation hasn't necessarily affected me because I'm pretty much isolated anyway, When I've been taking sheep to the fields I've noticed a hell of a lot of people out and about that I don't normally see, which means touching gates, more dogs about and I've also read a lot of posts of people saying their sheep are getting distressed and mauled by dogs, their owners clearly not having them under control and have no common sense when in comes to dogs, sheep and farming in general. The roads have been quiet, which has meant we have been moving sheep from field to field without any hassle. Lambs are doing well; we have 8 pets which my mam is currently in charge of and they're doing great, we've got 2 racks(got more in the shed but thankfully we only need two) which the bottles sit in so we can feed 8 at once, which is very handy! I used to have lambs in pens of 16 and refill bottles. In the shed and feed from 100-400 depending on the year, thankfully I'm giving myself time to regain myself to hopefully pet lambs next year. Since all the fields have been redrilled I'll have a chance to get some pest control done. This is vital for crops and livestock, crows/jackdaws have been horrendous and hopping on to a lamb/ewe who can't get up or whatever the circumstance and pecking their eyes out, horrible things. So its starting to quieten down now, the next jobs will be feet to clip and all that jazz.'-Katie

Its clear to see how busy the farmers are lets be cautious and keep them safe too, again a massive thank you, to you all, from us at NGS.
