This morning one of the pregnant heifers in the cow shed was being herded out into the yard with several others when she slipped and fell up against
the metal door and landed badly on the concrete yard.
The result was that she broke her hip. The vet was called. She was only a couple of weeks from giving birth to her first calf but sadly the vet said that she couldn't be saved. She was put down. The 'knacker man' has just been to collect her body. Such a shame for one so young.
