Spring this year has brought the most delightful addition to the Ashbolt herd in new baby Cecil, our pure white bull calf.
We named Cecil after the founder of Ashbolt Farm, Cecil Walker, who fell in love with this land in 1906. Read more about our farm's history here.
Little Cecil Calf has had a slow start. Interestingly, if there are any problems with a calf taking to his mother, in 99% of cases it's a male calf. Just look at the size of the udder on his mum! She is full and ready for her little one.
** UPDATE ** Little Cecil is feeding well and growing fast! And mum is very relieved.
