    Round bales or silage pit?

    Silage bales equals “single use plastic.” We are going to have a rethink forced on UK livestock farming very soon. I reckon.

    The prize for championing farming goes to..........MacDonalds !

    Horrid Henry calls it “gobble and go.” Trouble with a McFlurry at gobble and go is inevitable brain freeze that accompanies it.

    Farmers First Aid

    In a heart attack situation on farm, I for one would certainly try a few jolts with electric fencer unit...two clips across the chest. I’ve been knocked over twice in last six months by inadvertent fence shocks......other essential is a belt for tourniquet service. Oh and a phone with charge...

    Knock the beet over “before!” you put the sheep on the break. How close to lambing? Beet in last month is dangerous due to lack of room...(they will still try and pack it in. Ime and it kills...easy to see in diy pm.) Could be clostridial though any root grazing is extra problematic this winter...

    Letting land for shoot

    Hunting,shooting,fishing....field sports. A way of life. Tradition, heritage......just because the modern housewife likes feeding pasta and ready meals doesn’t mean sport, tradition and heritage should be discarded.
