About this series:
This series of caches is based upon the life and work of dairy farmers Mark & Pen DeLogg on the Lincolnshire Fens. As well clues to solving the puzzle on each cache page will be a fact about cows and their behaviour, as well as information about particular breeds of cattle around the British Isles and the world.
- The cache is not hidden at the published coordinates.
- Steep drops and water may be encounted at some GZs, keep the little ones safe.
- No animals were encountered when the caches were placed.
- The cache size was made as large as possible according to the hiding place, varying from magnetic nanos to regular size boxes
- You may need to provide your own TOTT i.e tweezers
- Please park sensibly, safely, and considerably.
- The D/T ratings concern the difficulty to both the puzzle and hides.

About Brown Swiss:
The Brown Swiss originated on the slopes of the Alps in Switzerland; because they were bred in this harsh climate, they are resistant to the heat, cold and many other common cattle problems.After the Holstein Friesian, it has the second-highest annual milk yield, over 9,000 kg (20,000 lb) per annum. The milk contains on average 4% butterfat and 3.5%protein, making their milk excellent for production of cheese. The Brown Swiss is known for a long gestation period, immense size, large furry ears, and an extremely docile temperament.
Now for the puzzle:
On a trip to her local farm shop Pen DeLogg was amazed at all the different types of milk that was on offer to buy.
Being a farmer’s daughter and now married to a farmer she was only used to milk that came direct from the cow.
None of this pasteurised, homogenised, skimmed or semi skimmed for her!
Pen took a few pictures on her moobile phone to show Mark what he was missing out on.

Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning to place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, the journey or location, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or "copy and paste" logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.
Travelbug Etiquette: Cachers pay good money for TravelBugs and Geocoins. Please if you take a TB or GC from a cache will you ensure it is correctly logged in and out, also If you take one that still shows somewhere else please be patient before “grabbing” the item, it does not get its mileage by being grabbed and the last person to place may not have had time to log a previous find or the one you took it from. This is particularly important on busy and new caches. If you have an issue with a bug please e-mail the owner through their profile and advise them of the issue. They will be pleased to hear from you.
