Bernadette is learning that no two days are the same on a dairy farm, and sometimes you have to get in and get your hands dirty.
“I’ve been working long days and smell like the cows but I’m loving all aspects of it,” says Bernadette.
In her role, Bernadette has made some new friends – of the four-legged variety – and helped to bring new life into the world.
“Almost all the 130 calves have been born. We’ve had some emergencies such as prolapses and breeches which have been exciting to remedy.
“It’s fantastic to learn from such a good boss.”
Bernadette says the support and guidance from CVGT has been “such a blessing”.
