A level smooth floor is worth the world for fabrication alright, but it depends on the size of the stuff you're making.

You could make a good solid, level bench fairly handy too.

but yeah a shed is probably the most important starting point.

If you can tolerate the looks then a 20 foot container would make a nice secure starting point, just buy a set of earmuffs.

this cow and calf are been looked at for the ploughing for the blue stand, this is the fat pig of a stock bull he never grew but seems to do the job if the cow is good enough, the calf is by him.

Some serious quality stock there!
The first cow and BBX calf, what breeding is in the cow? Is therte Blonde or Part or what?
And the tiny calf, dwarfed by the big powerful cow, How does this cow generally breed?


Ps. You're like a man thet got a new camera phone, and a good one at that?

the cow is a blonde out of a dairy herd,i bought 7 heifers one thursday morn off the journal without looking at them for 650euros and they were all great breeders.the big cow is a pedigree blonde that i bought up north with a heifer calf at foot,she had a average calf last year a bull he made around 940e i think out of the stock bull.no its a camera and we can now put up pics its great.

God he's very small for such a big cow and BBQ. A cousin of mine has had a few Dwarf Calves over the last few years. This calf reminds me of some of his calves. You'll know in a few weeks if he doesn't grow. The cousin has it narrowed down to a manganese deficiency (he thinks!!) Might be worth keeping an eye on him.
