Colin Capon on Harvest
They used to grow a lot of mangles and kale, which again was all hand work. It had to be all harvested by hand, and hay of course.
There was no silage or anything and sometimes bought in feeds … we used to buy concentrated feeds and sometimes beet pulp which was very good but that was the main thing.
Everything revolved around the cows really and as Mike has said about the barley, we used to grow barley so that it could be ground up and fed to the cows and to the young stock as well.
