As of today 5th of July 2018 applications for LEADER funding for West Cornwall are closed. However you can make Expression of Interest Applications (EOI) should you wish but you need to state in your email application to West Cornwall LAG that this “project is for the reserve list”. Should extra funds be available, that is funds under spent from other regions then those projects from the reserve list will be considered.
According to Truro Weather Map we have no rain of any discernable amounts since the 18th of June, in Penzance we 1.8mm on Saturday Night (30th of June/1st of July).
However on these very hot days it is important that cattle have access to water, unfortunately a cow is herding animal and will choose to drink when others do. Please make sure cows have access to sufficient water a dairy cow under normal heat periods will consume 60-80 litres per day (13- 17 gallons) in this very hot weather it can increase by 25%. If necessary add an extra water trough or top up with a bowser.
If you have pigs outside make sure they have access to a WALLOW, a shallow mud bath regularly filled with water as the mud acts as a sun screen as pigs can get sun burnt.
