Pendeen & Trenow Open Days

The open farm days at Pendeen on 28th & 29th July 2014 attracted 66 people on day one and over 40 on day two. Visitors were shown the conservation grazing being carried out by the Pendeen herd of Whitebred Shorthorn cattle and Dartmoor ponies in Devon. Gerald Babcock is an experienced grazier and advisor on conservation grazing for the environment.

Trenow & Pendeen Open Day

Gerald Babcock works in partnership with neighbour Karen Wall of Trenow Cove Micro dairy. Karen takes the calves off the milkers for rearing by Gerald. Heifers return to the dairy herd in time to become accustomed to the dairy routine before calving.

Karen milks eight cows in the dairy and Gerald Babcock looks after the cows when they are not milking, when they are young, in early pregnancy or "dry " cows who have fin-ished milking for a time. When the cows are away from Trenow they spend their time up on the Penwith Moors where they are used for conservation grazing.
