In the final episode of This Farming Life (Wednesday, BBC 2) before it takes a break, returning later in the year with the final six programmes, we are in the Highlands, where lambing is finally over and it’s time for Raymond to get his cows out to the new spring grass.
But on the road to the fields, the taste of freedom goes to their heads.
At the Balmoral Show the Rodgers family’s hopes of success are pinned on bull Mario and his young half-sister Nadia.
In Fife, buffalo farmer Stevie Mitchell faces a difficult dilemma when his favourite pygmy goat Ginger struggles to give birth to her overdue twins.
And in Shetland lambing is only just getting started and Kirsty and friend Joanna struggle with lack of sleep, terrible weather and a tricky breach birth.
