Malton again

Took M+F Simmental twins and a Sim steer which had always been a bit weedy because his Limousin heifer mother didn't have that much milk.
The Heifer twin was a bit disappointing but the others did OK, although they were older than the ones I took last weeks so will have eaten a lot more stuff!
Sunny and springlike until shortly after I took this then large hailstones rattled on the roof.

At home it stayed dry again which is a pity for the recently sown spring barley  -which could really do with a proper soak.
I think there's reasonable moisture at depth but can imagine it emerging over a long time if we don't get rain soon. I got a pre-emergence style spray this year called Kula but it needs moisture to work properly - however it can be applied post-em too,
