Farming
David Boyle

When my mam was younger, she would always go out onto the farm to mind the sheep. My grandad also had cows which were kept in the other field. Not very often my grandad would bring up one or two cows and sell them to the butcher who would chop it up and give a bit back to them. If the lambs got sick, my mam would bring them inside to feed them with a bottle of milk in front of the fire or the heat lamp. They would usually keep them inside for a few days after they got better to make sure they aren’t weak. My grandad would also shear the sheep and sell the wool. During duck season, my grandad would go out and shoot 3 ducks and bring them home to eat for dinner. My mam, her brother and her sister would each pluck the feathers and my granny would cut off the head and the legs and then cook it. They would do that every weekend for every duck season.
