October photo competition, what grew on the farm this year.

Congrats to The Real Elmer Fudd our September winner. This month for our competition we want to see something that was born or grew on the farm this year. It can be a calf/lamb/foal etc. or a crop, vegetable etc.

There's been a few people complaining about big photos, if you are on a laptop perhaps you have the zoom setting bigger than 100%. Try and re-size them to a medium format on a photo site like flickr etc.

There is a star shape on the top right of the screen where you type a web address, if you have the magnifying glass icon with a + sign in it, left click on it and select 'reset to default'. This should reduce the photos so that they can be seen on the screen. To increase the font size again hold the CTRL key down and press the '+' key. It's a useful feature to zoom in on photos/DD ads etc.

Usual Terms and Conditions apply.

Guidelines-
Photo must be your own image i.e. taken by you or a family member.
Photo should conform to this month's theme.
You may enter more than once (within reason though, not 100 photos please!)
No chat/banter on this thread please, it will be removed. If you want to discuss what's in the photo take it to chit chat or send a PM to the person who posted it.
Even if the theme isn't strictly farming related, we would like to see the photos to have some tie to farming.
No naughty pictures please.
Final winners will be the photo with the most 'thanks' from a single photo which can be entered any month.
So there are lots of chances guys!

January winner Base price.
February winner emaherx.
March winner moll3
April winner Trigger Happy
May winner Lady Haywire
June winner MasFer
July winner emaherx
August winner _Brian
September winner The Real Elmer Fudd https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...p?t=2058013708

This is what has grown the most this year on my farm, my new chief herder. She's absolutely mad about cattle and horses.

She insists on seeing "her cows" every day.

Grew maize here again. Last crop in 11 was a total flop. Very pleased with it. Even the dog is impressed with a sample
