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 Deoni Cattle:
The Deoni is a native breed of cattle in India. Known to be both good milk yielders and draft animals, the Deoni is considered as an important dual-purpose breed of cattle in India. These animals are quite popular in the tracts of former Hyderabad State which is now Telangana and adjoining districts of Karnataka and Maharashtra. Their crosses with Holstein and Jersey are very good milk yielders. Deoni cattle are hardy and well adapted to their breeding tract and constitute an important cattle genetic resource of India.
Cows of this breed are moderately good milkers, yielding about 1135 kg in a lactation period of 300 days.
Deoni bullocks are good for heavy work and are particularly suitable for intensive cultivation. One pair of bullocks can pull a medium plough for about seven to eight hours a day and can plough about half an acre of land.
Now for the puzzle:
Farmer Mark DeLogg often got lost whilst he helped Pen at the shops. It was one of his pet hates. He could think of better things to do with the time like milking the cows or cleaning the milking parlour or even fixing the roof over the staff parking area Pen has been bugging to him about for ages.
Pen was getting fed up of the staff dumping their car in multiple locations on the farm churning up her prized flower bed. The alternative parking was hard to follow, its route winding around the farm tracks, so she decided to take matters in her own hands and put up some arrows to help them.
Mark had an idea that could earn him some money too. He could put solar panels on the south facing roof once he’d fixed it and be more environmentally friendly too!
“How do I look?” piped Pen. Mark awoke from his day dreaming and he remembered that he was out with Pen at ClothesRUs. Pen was looking for a nice dress that she could wear to the dairy dinner next week.
“Just pick something woman” sighed a fed up Mark realising he’d been out shopping for almost four hours. “it can’t be that hard to pick a simple dress could it? I have a lot of work to do!”
Needless to say, Pen soon put Mark in his place!
Check your Solution:
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.
