    23 February 2004 – Milking (52k image)

    The calf was born the night before this photo was taken and is still very tottery on its feet. It's mother is being milked and it encouraged to suckle but it seemed to take quite a long time for it to get the idea.

    The milking of the cattle takes place twice a day and the cattle are very domesticated particularly at this time of year when they are kept tied up and fed by a cut and carry method to avoid them eating the crops in the fields.
