In this episode, Join Phil and Heather as they feed the cows on a sunny Sunday morning - they chat grass and breeding. Phil also answers a question about de-horning Calves. Then Monty talks you through our latest farm innovation - Herdwatch.
After some authentic 'Sounds of the Cattle Shed', you'll learn about our Herd of Cows, and Heather and Phil attempt to describe the different breeds. Long-time Wigglet Rach gets Phil's thoughts on different ways to make sure your cow's horns don't grow. Monty goes in-depth on the new systems we are putting in place on the farm and what this means for recording information about our cattle.
At this difficult time we are not allowing visitors onto Lower Blakemere Farm, but don't fret you can still get a peek into life on the Wiggly farm with our New Wiggly Podcast! If you're as sad as we are about The Archers skipping a day, then we've got your Friday fix right here.
Each Friday, join the Gorringes (The Archers of Blakemere) for a new episode - including Heather's wiggly updates, the farming catch-up with Farmer Phil, the return of the (now older) Monty Cast and lots of other interviews!
So run a bath (or whatever you do when you listen to podcasts) settle in and let us invite you for a slice of country life from the heart of Herefordshire.

Here at Wiggly HQ we are always keen to support wildlife and we know you are as well. Bringing our gardens to life has always been a fundamental principal of what we do – whether that is using worms or micro-organisms to compost our waste or simply feed the birds.
We realised early on we needed to do our bit here to help these situations and so we have pledged our support in two ways:
1: We will give £1 for every order over £30 received during this crisis
2: We will add a box onto our order form where you the customer can add a donation which we can add to the fund.This is going really well and so far we have accumulated over £1000 and so we are ready to give out the first set of grants.
