    Does this exist?

    Wasn’t wanting new to be honest but it’s a good shout thanks.

    Does this exist?

    I’m looking for a double press (two rows of rings) that has a Harrow fitted in front to get stubbles chitted but also consolidated. I want it to double up as my rolls as well. We’ve got both 6m and 12m Cambridge rolls but there’s no easy way of adding harrows due to how they fold and also being...

    Pigeons in a shed

    Got two pigeons taken camp in a shed, thankfully not the grain store but it’s next to the grain store and we need the door open as it takes the damp air from the grain store out. We can’t net it due to extensive racking in there and we can’t shoot as we don’t want holes in the roof. Any ideas...

    Charging for biomass heat

    So if kero is say 50p/litre how do you work it back to straw in p/kwh? I’m having a being thick day 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Charging for biomass heat

    Thanks. 1500kw seems low from a straw bale. We seem to get about double that off fresh straw. Year old straw a bit less. I’d got in my head about 6p as he currently paying for elec heaters at 16p/kwh.

    PX FARMS.

    LTD company accounts show what they want the tax man to see. You can’t judge a business off them. The fact that an Anderson’s person is a director should show you that!

    Lorry driver shortage

    Have to say we’ve had no issues at all to be honest. All early sold grains were picked up bang on time, although we do sell to smaller buyers who tend to use smaller family operated haulage companies running just a couple of trucks mostly. Also had seed delivered virtually on time. Fuel...

    Charging for biomass heat

    We’ve a tenant in the yard who’s enquired about us plumbing into our biomass boiler (only used for grain drying and farmhouse presently) to get heat into his unit. I’m waiting on prices from the installer to do the job for us but need to have an idea of what we can potentially charge him for...

    Swimming pool help

    Just had a quote today for that at £7k if we widen it to the 5m so adding that in and then plumbing etc it’s looking like a £10k job. The liners are much cheaper but I’m being told fibre glass is the way to go.

    Grass yields 2021

    How’s everybody faired this year? We are a bit disappointed as Hay has averaged 3.40t/acre as a first cut. Then second cut hayledge has only done 1.5t/acre. The crops have all looked much stronger but then turned out light we feel. Just wondering if it’s the year or whether it’s time to reseed...

    Swimming pool help

    I know not farming related but farmers are a resourceful bunch hence asking the question. My grandfather hand dug out a pool in the farmhouse garden in the 50’s. It was last used around 20 years ago but as it’s made out of concrete had badly cracked and leaked a bit. It was covered over and...
