Three new Jersery cows have moo-ved in at Sandwell Valley's Forge Mill Farm to the delight of visitors.

Victoria, Beth and Polly can be seen being milked at the West Bromwich attraction every day at 11am.

New Jersey cow additions to Forge Mill Farm

The ladies, who are on loan from Sheldon Country Park, produce around seven litres each a day – which should soon be on sale at the farm shop.

Cabinet member Councillor Paul Moore said: “The Jersey cows are another great addition to Forge Mill Farm.

“We have some more new arrivals on the way as we have sheep, goats and pigs on the farm about to give birth.

“Spring is a great time to visit both Forge Mill and Sandwell Park Farms.”

Admission to Forge Mill Farm is free, with a small charge for admission and some activities during school holidays.

The farm also offers educational visits for schools at Sandwell Valley aimed at Key Stages 1 and 2.

They include woodland walks including hunting for and identifying mini beasts, pond-dipping, farm visits and learning about the production of home-grown produce in the Victorian gardens.

The school visits take place from May to July and can be booked by 0121 569 3070.
