Some people just shouldn't live in the country : police were called to a farm in Breckland when one of the neighbours complained about the noise from lambing.
Other neighbours just said 'what do you expect at this time of year?'

Sounds like the farmer called the police - for his safety - and there is now a nutter going around letting out sheep.

It will get worse as more and more houses get built in the countryside as townies cannot find housing in their town.

That's my fault, I looked for a thread that pointed out a stupid complaint about countryside noises to tag my post onto.


My bad sorry!

OK. There's a cockerel down the road who crows in the middle of the night. His hens lay from 12.30-5 p.m....
See what you can do with that.

Good grief, I disappear for a few days and all the wags come out :lol:

I read an article recently in Ouest France, commonly known as Ouest Torchon, about a farmer forced to sell up because newbie townies complained about his cattle :( It seems that townies expect life in the countryside is quiet :-j They forget that farming with its animals and machinery can be quite noisy !

The lambing season can be a long one - from Christmas to the end of April, and even in September. There are various considerations such as the market the farmer is aiming at, nd the best conditions to finish the lambs off and the cost of feed stuffs.

Our ex neighbour in the lot had 2000 brebis and they lambed down all through the year not the UK traditional time in the UK as stated by Blaze
