    For balance. Next doors 100 acre of winter wheat looks outstanding.

    Gross Margins

    According to my mate, a hammer, builders cord, a few builders pins, spade & pick.

    Gross Margins

    I wear gloves, pretty much all the time, even when driving the car. Working as a drystone waller makes the crops & sheep seem pretty silly. According to one I know, he does the fancy work around high value houses.

    Foot & Mouth does that deserve any special measures? Or just let it spread? In fact Avian flu, African swine fever, Bovine TB etc, should we just let them spread?

    So why is SARS not endemic? Covid is because it was allowed to spread.

    China have proved ...

    I don't swear at you Bob & you are not innocent of writing some daft stuff. No one knew how bad Covid was a mutation could have made it worse. Governments had to act early. I'd rather check the ewes twice a day at this time of the year, than think no problems last few days & think checking...

    China have proved ...

    I thought this thread was about lockdowns not covid. There is likely dozens of pandemics that have been stopped by localised lock downs. No one knows how worse covid would have been without lockdowns. But no doubt if Italy had shut down its ski resorts, China had alerted the world earlier...

    Did we decide what feed barley is worth, today?

    China have proved ...

    Yes but lockdowns prevented them from spreading. The next bug could be really lethal, we need to be ready & lock downs are an important tool. EARLY, not once it has spread.

    It worked for Sars & Ebola, how would life be now if they had spread around the world? How much money & lives saved if covidnhad been discovered earlier with a complete lock down in the affected area. Agree though once it is endenmic & there is a vaccine, just forget lockdowns.

    Modern day David Brown 780

    Which new tractor gives a driving experience, close to a David Brown 780? I'm nostalgic for my youth, traveling the farm with my DB 780 & Grays delux tipping 5 foot transport box, picking up dead sheep, carrying walling toppers & milk churns to top up baths used as troughs.
