Lamb Day essence of coun­try life

Bush Telegraph - - FOCUS ON FARMING - By DAVE MUR­DOCH

With a sunny, warm morn­ing af­ter a post­pone­ment the day be­fore due to rain, Ruahine School held a suc­cess­ful Lamb and Ag Day on Tues­day Oc­to­ber 31.

With no calves due to the M. bo­vis threat it was a smaller af­fair than usual, but there were 42 lambs with their young own­ers tak­ing part — in a pre­dom­i­nantly dairy farm­ing dis­trict.

There were lots of par­ents and grand­par­ents along to sup­port the day and a sausage siz­zle did a roar­ing trade as lunch ap­proached.

The day showed the essence of coun­try life for farm­ing fam­i­lies.
