The new dairy season starts with spring calving.
July through September is a busy and exciting time of year.
The farmers get up early to check the calving paddocks and get the morning milking underway.
There is time for the farmer to have breakfast before he or she is back at work feeding the calves and checking the cows that are yet to give birth.
Looking after the health of my cow-friends and I at this time of year is very important, as it gives us a great start to our busy year making milk.
