The Farming Year - November
Autumn makes way for winter.
On Livestock farms, farmers have to start actively feeding their livestock more as grazing becomes less and less available. Grass stops growing and the quality drops. Any livestock that is going to be housed will usually be housed by the middle of November.
Cattle farmers are castrating male calves before the first frost appears. Sheep farmers will be attending livestock auctions for Tup / Ram sales that take place towards the end of the month.
On Arable farms, the drilling of wheat comes to an end around the middle of the month. Sugar beet will have liquid fertiliser applied, and the remaining fields are ploughed ready for the next growing season.
