Calf scour testing kits; a calving glove and bailing twine - see the full list here.

You know you’re a woman in agriculture if you find calf scour testing kits; a calving glove and bailing twine in your handbag!

  • A calving glove and ropes

- For any emergencies!

  • BVD samples

- If they were placed in the fridge, they would never be posted.

  • Calf scour testing kits and syringes
- You could find anything in this bag!
  • An AI docket and an AI straw.
- The docket and straw will go missing if you put them in the office.
  • Cattle passports

- The ‘Blue cards’ that have to be dropped off at the vet’s office at some stage today.

  • Mart dockets and factory returns

- Your mini office on wheels.

  • The odd rosette
- That you picked up at a summer show for one of your cattle!
  • A scissors
- For emergencies!
  • A farm ‘diary’
- A piece of cardboard with a few phone numbers and tag numbers jotted down.
  • A manure-stained tissue

- As expected!

  • A pair of shoes for ‘good wear’

- You know that you can’t wear those wellies into the pharmacy or shop.

  • Cosmetics
- The odd lipstick and hand cream to make yourself look ‘half decent’ after herding before you pop to the shop.
  • A blade of straw
- And some silage too - a desirable fragrance!
  • Bailing twine
- To repair fences and replace a belt in trousers.
