Key tasks: to feed the highland cows, join morning meeting to discuss key opportunities, clean guests rooms, cook dinners, observe cattle’s need and take immediate actions to address them, e.g. checking if new born babies drinking milk from mum.

Takeaways: I met new friends and the knowledgeable cow expert host Roy, I learnt a lot about highland cattle and personally accomplished many breakthroughs: I learnt how to drive quad, improved in cooking, overcome fears in interacting with big cattle. Helping to ear tag baby cow, combing cow Alice, hiking peaceful mountains are just unforgettable.
