The last milking of the season for a handful of younger cows - ones that need a bit longer rest as they are starting to lose condition.
Last milking means a range of treatments - 'Dry Cow Therapy' (a long acting antibiotic into each teat if they've tested as needing it), or Teat Seal to keep the bugs out of their udder, plus a drench, and a Copper 'bullet'. (Northland is naturally short in Copper so the stock need one of these regularly.)
Then it's off for 5 months holiday (for them)!
See you tomorrow,
