    4k is a , pee take. Round here £10 acre to mow, £6 approx a time to ted or rake. Small bale cost to bale I would not know. Agree with previous posts, go 50/50 with a good neighbour who will look after the crop as it was his own

    Fresh calved cow with blood in milk, is there a correct protocol?

    Get a vit K jab from the vet. It helps stop internal bleeding in the udder

    Block glue

    Yes. The glue finishes way before the tips and nozzles. I did the same years ago, changed to BD supplies and you order any things individually , I think I went 2 years ordering glue only as I had enough spare tips and blocks!

    Block glue

    Had same issues with bovibond a couple of years ago. Changed to BD Supplies own brand and been great. Have to prise a lot off as holding on too well. Get about 5-6 blocks per tube. In winter put glue over Rayburn rack before getting cow into crush and don’t hang about getting the block on the hoof!

    Have used Nadins cubicle lime for several years. No teat burns and hardly any mastitis. Used in straw bedded hard core cubicles and sawdust covered mats

    Ecoli mastitis

    just seen this thread.Last couple winters not had one case of e coli mastitis since using Nadins cubicle lime I put it on every 2 days usually , every day on some cubicles if they are damp/dirty. Our cell counts are under 100 all winter and mastitis is more of a problem in summer ironically

    Milk Price Tracker

    Sorry if this topic is not quite in line with the milk price tracker thread.I suppose what I am getting at is the "take home" price for a lot of us this spring will be much lower than our individual headline contract price

    Milk Price Tracker

    I agree! I have almost given up on good solids in spring milk anyway. There is a fine line between the cost of feeding silage and getting better solids even with a decent milk price. It still pees you off though when you get your NML results
