Abstract:

Christmas is coming, but this is no holiday for the farmers. In the east of Scotland east of Inverness, Martin's sheds are full of cows and their newborn calves. Two calves give Martin cause for concern - one was born prematurely and with such a low weight, his chances of survival don't look good. Jumbo only just survived a traumatic birth and is struggling to feed. In the west in Argyll, the weather takes a turn for the worse just when Sybil and George must load two and a half tonnes of fleeces into a haulage lorry. On the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Sandy and Ali must move their sheep down from the hills in the snow to separate the rams from their pregnant ewes. In the far north, John is expanding his flock and his land - he gathers rams to take to another farm he rents by the sea for grazing. Martin has one last chance to sell his bull Ironhide, and as Christmas finally arrives, there are celebrations and a sad discovery in Martin's cattle shed.
