Farming background

I Looked after two herds one of 180 Holstein Friesians and one of 65 Ayrshires plus all followers.  On the Ayrshire farm I was working alone for 12 days on and two off when the farmers wife would milk, these Ayrshires were very shy and nasty when I started work there, and they would not walk in the parlour, I had to go and fetch them in, after two weeks of me milking  the farmers wife commented that she couldn't believe how she nearly got run over in the speed in which they ran in when she opened the door, the last herdsman had been il treating them, and the farmer said he had never seen such a low bacteria count in all his years of farming, both of those comments I was proud of because it was the first time that I had run a farm on my own.
