    Fly time

    Yes point B is the main issue.

    Fly time

    What about chickens following the herd round? Might sound daft but flypor at £1/cow for a squirt would probably buy a few ex layers...

    Yep, the stuff out of fresh calvers that would otherwise be thrown away. We have a calf machine that runs on powder, so if we went all whole milk would swap that for a pasteuriser. But they aren't cheap (£8k to £10k ish).

    We have no issues with wind taking the side walls off here. South Coast of UK, granted not the windiest spot. Compared to tyres, I bloody love 'em.

    Cabless electric tractor

    Said it before but electric powered scraper tractor should be next step in e-tractors... top it up with solar panels on the cubicle house. The heavy tillage stuff needs time to develop, no need to run before we can walk.

    Switching from Cepravin to UBRORED

    We been moved from Cepravin to Orbenin Extra, also had shorter milk withhold period. Historic bacteriology from high cell count cows showed there was minimal presence of Orbenin resistant bacteria that the Cepravin does combat, so there was effectively no justification for using it. And it's...
