Farming through the seasons

‘Springtime on the farm’ with Ulster Farmers’ Union member Peter McCann.

Within the springtime on the farm video, Peter takes pupils on a virtual farm tour on his beef and sheep farm in County Derry/Londonderry. Spring is an extremely busy period in the farming calendar with new arrivals on farm, livestock out grazing the iconic green landscape and preparation for the summer months that lie ahead. Peter discusses what happens throughout the season on his farm, the various breeds of sheep and why they were selected, upland and lowland farming practices and also features his trustee collie dog out shepherding.
