Winter is a special time at Sandstone Estates

Everything is the same colour – the cattle, the mountains, the grass etc., but that adds a certain charm. At this time of the year we are busy combining maize. Our cattle are not far behind because they spend most of the winter time grazing on maize stubble as one can see from the photos below.

We also bale large stocks of fodder as an emergency drought relief measure in case our cattle are faced with a situation where for some reason food stocks run low. 2014 has been a bumper year and a good time to make provision for the lean years.
