Abstract:

It is autumn, the time of year to prepare for the upcoming mating - or tupping - season. On the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, sea shepherd and ex-barrister Sandy gathers in a flock of wild sheep from a remote Scottish island by boat. Later, he and wife Ali attempt to train two wayward Highland cattle calves. On the mainland in the east of Scotland, fiances Mel and Martin head to market to look for the perfect rams to impregnate their ewes. In central Scotland near Loch Lomond, hill farmers Bobby and Anne health-check their flock to make sure they're fit to breed. In the far north, large-scale sheep farmer John has 4,000 ewes to check, but is also expecting thousands of visitors from all over the world as he hosts the world sheepdog trials. Further east, Martin must bring his barley in before the rain comes if he has any chance of saving his crop, but his new combine harvester is playing up.
