Hi
Thanks for the Information on how to contact the Ladang perternakan UPM.

I wish we could have joined this trip. See Ming just told me about it today.

I have been looking for somewhere for my kids to see cows, oats and horses. Being city kids, they have never seen any before. And to know how smelly the animals can be... That might be the best experience in my opinion.
