This farming life( Visual )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This final episode features all the farmers from across the year reflecting on what each season means to them. In autumn the programme revisits sea shepherding with Sandy on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. In the west in Argyll, Sybil and George gather in their sheep from over six square miles of mountainside. As everyone looks forward to mating, or tupping time, in the east of Scotland Mel and Martin head to market to buy rams for their flock, then introduce the lads to the ladies. As winter descends over Scotland, the farmers reflect on this time of year. It's bitterly cold but this is also a time of new life for the farmers. Martin has a shed full of pregnant cows and dramatically has to save the life of one calf. Lewis is hit by a series of violent storms, one just when the vet is due to arrive to inspect Sandy's highland cattle. It's a huge relief when spring arrives. Martin collects semen from his prize bull, and Sandy and Ali welcome two new calves to their croft. In the far north, John is in the midst of lambing over 4000 ewes and also has to deal with an emergency caesarean on one of his prize heifers. Mel fights to save the life of one very poorly lamb, number 119. As summer arrives, the farmers can finally put their cattle out to the fields. Martin's have been indoors for eight months. Further west, Sybil and George welcome home their cattle from their winter sheds on another farm
