    What's going on?

    I have a feeling that staffing is going to be every farmers undoing, apart from a very small percentage the young one's coming through just don't 'have it in them' anymore. And money won't fix this problem. I do wonder at the agri colleges with their push to get their students better jobs with...

    Heat pumps

    Been looking at a few options recently and the consensus I have got from chatting to numerous people is that heat pumps are great but only if you build a passive spec house otherwise you will always need a plan b. Was in a passive house a couple of weeks ago and couldn't believe how comfortable...

    This farming life

    Concern's about a safety of a child? or something along those lines? If the people who reported it are really concerned they should have contacted the HSE, they just phoned the police as they seen it as a way to stick a dagger in I would assume.

    This farming life

    I just seen on Emma Gray's Instagram that someone has reported her to the police for allowing their child to be on the quad with them (wearing a helmet). They will have been reported by: a)Someone with a serious case of sour grapes B)Someone with absolutely nothing going on with their lives...

    Are Contractors rates having to go up.

    Does it not drive them nuts dropping the shovel? usually the buckrake man only wants to drive the buckrake and throws the toys out of the pram if asked to do anything else at the grass

    Are Contractors rates having to go up.

    I do like the multi cut system but it's a bit of a mystery at times too, Say you cut 200 acres each cut for a farmer (Very general figures)- 200acres * 3 cuts * £60 per acre = £36,000 200acres* 5 cuts * £35 per acre = £35,000 Turnover wise there isn't much in it and you should have still...

    Firewood price.

    Yea sadly not worth as much as you would think unless you cut it and net bag it which is a PITA, None of the firewood men will pay for it as they all want it FOC. You could try ringing Mckinstry's Biomass as they are hungry for wood but I still think it will be silver leaving your hand too...

    Stating the bleeding obvious

    Does anybody have a copy of the RT workplace temperature template where I can tick that all my staff only work when it's above the guidance 13c? Wouldn't want a NC at my next audit. Heated seat working in all vehicles.. tick, all indoor buildings above 13c..tick, staff that are working outdoors...

    Are Contractors rates having to go up.

    The contracting game is a very fine balancing act, I could go at the silage game next season and set my stall at £100 acre but the fleet would probably be parked in the shed as some buckaroo would just come in at £40 an acre. So you have to weigh up pricing accordantly to the market that you...

    Are Contractors rates having to go up.

    Nothing like talking the game down to keep others out of it 😂 I’m not a hater and fair play to him he must really love what he does and don’t they tell you that if you do what you love you will never work a day in your life, Although I do wonder what sort of conversations him and his accountant...

    It’s your outfits health and safety advisor has advised them that this is the best course to prove forklift operators competence then (rightly or wrongly).

    fork lift test 5 days !

    Who’s asking you for these tickets? Ie who’s the ‘they’? Training providers really have got good at up selling and why wouldn’t they as some may find the 5 day course beneficial and some believe that this is the correct course to be fully competent in forklift operation. Ive said this phrase...

    Spend some money for me !

    Don't be too afraid of the safety inspections as they are basically like paying for your annual PSV but in 6 weekly instalments and depending on vehicle and circumstances you may be able to go up to 10 week safety checks. A restricted O license can be got for haulage of your own goods only...

    The right buyer will get a bit more tarmac tramped with her yet. If any farmer is thinking about putting their own unit on the road then that's the one to aim for right there although I do agree a tag would be better for farm work. Loved my 460 back in the day, a cracking unit that every driver...
