Storyline

James and Siegfried have to deal with the Shadwells whose cattle are seriously ill. Bill Shadwell will soon be retiring and apparently refuses to face facts and the whole situation is causing considerable friction in the Shadwell family. Siegfried has to convince Mr. Grimsdale that his bull requires a operation. Unfortunately, Grimsdale is as concerned about his money as he is about the bull. Tristan is having fun with his latest toy - a cumbersome army surplus metal detector. Written by garykmcd
