The Farmer’s Wife – Cow’s Don’t Really Understand English!

Have you ever stared down a cow?

While we were share farming in Victoria, we would sometimes tend to the young heifers on adjustment blocks. These young cows were usually around eighteen months or so old, in calf and growing fast; ready to have their first calf and join the milking herd. They were big black and white Friesian cows weighing a whopping 500kg plus, even at such a young age….. full story here!


The Farmer’s Wife is a series of short stories about some of the moments which shaped who I am today. It highlights how planning and control are really only an illusion and that knowing which opportunities to take and when is a gift.
