... our early start. Luckily for us, the start wasn't too early. We got up at 7.30, had some porridge (and to Dong Geun's 'delight', Weetabix) and headed out with Graham as the sun had just come up.

First thing's first, the calves needed feeding. We went to collect some buckets of milk from the milking session the previous day and the calves moo'ed as we approached them. Calves fed and content, we went back to to the milking area. On our way, we saw ...
