Spring on a farm

Hello everyone,

It is Springtime. Spring is the busiest season of all on a farm.

In spring:

  • Snow melts and fields and roads flood.
  • Weather warms and animals get outside.
  • Young animals are born.
  • Fields are prepared for planting crops.

Spring is here, the leaves on the hedgerows and trees start to grow and they are transformed from brown to green. The crops also change, the oil seed rape starts to grow and later in spring, it will flower and go bright yellow.

One of the best but most tiring parts of spring for the farmer is lambing time! It is brilliant to see all the new born lambs.

Have a look at this video about spring on the farm.
