May 1, 2012 – Starburst Herefords & Shorthorns Show Box

It was with great pleasure we received our new Starburst show box with a custom painting of our current Hereford and Shorthorn herd sires standing  in front of our beautiful valley that looks straight into the Cairngorms.   Mr. Harry McDougall of  Newby West, Carlisle was the skilled artist.  He is well known for his custom farm signs and show boxes.  In the off season, we have decided to give this treasure an honorable place in our home, front and center when you enter in for a visit.  Thank you Harry and Elizabeth for all your hard work in giving us beyond what we asked for.

Starburst Herefords and Shorthorns perfect rain

April 2, 2012 we awoke to find that we had a gentle rain all night long to wash our new lush green grass and to quench our thirsty seeded fields.  The drizzle continued throughout the day with little or no winds.  How perfect it was, and how thankful we are, as we had just completed our spring seeding (a month early).  Check out our Sale Barn for a sneak preview of one of our up and coming Sale bulls from our Pedigree Herefords.

Scotland’s Starburst Herefords & Shorthorns finish seeding

Starburst Herefords & Shorthorns of Newton of Millfield Farm has now finished plowing, rock picking, harrowing, seeding and rolling the rolling hills of organic oats, barley, and grass fields of clover.  After a very dry spring, and a wonderful start to the 2012, we patiently await the glorious, life-giving spring rains.
