Changes on the Farm

Today the Year 1/2 classes visited Doolan’s farm to learn about changes that have happened over time. We found out that things change on the farm according to the seasons. The calves are born in spring and autumn, hay is made in summer, silage starts growing in spring and the Pivot doesn’t need to be used in winter. There have also been changes over longer periods of time. Many years ago the land was covered in trees, then they were removed to put the cows on the land and now new trees are being planted. People used to milk the cows by hand, then they used a herringbone dairy and now they have a large rotary dairy. We had a fantastic day on the farm!
