2012 Calving Season

August traditionally marks the very end of the calving season, and is a great time to give a round up of this year's success.

Fecundity was very high this year, with 59% (105 out of 179) of mature females pregnant, compared to 43% in 2011. Of these 105, 79 calves have been caught for weighing, measuring and sampling and to put on the tags and collars which we will use to identify them later in life. Well done to Martyn and the rest of the calving team for your hard work!
