    Erysipelas

    I have decided to vaccinate my hens for it. It’s not been a problem to date, but it is a risk I can control albeit at cost and I understand the vaccine is quite hard on the birds. I think pigs are a bigger risk than sheep.

    Skills Shortage Will This Story Ever End?

    Most of whom will have grown up and have transferable skills, which will make them good at whatever trade they end up in. I know others disagree, but my observation is the 16/17 year old apprentices struggle, in a fairly brutal work environment, the old jokes of asking for a long stand etc...

    Lorry driver shortage

    I think that’s a good reason for further education. Who really wants to employ a 16 year old in any business.

    Chicken shortage

    I have laying hens and will help, it’s only once per year and it’s a long night if you just watch, but as shumungus says, the teams are actually quite well trained (it’s a requirement of my standards) and have systems and routine, which if you upset results in you getting a bollocking on your...

    Seemingly this is it’s 10th year, which is frightening, I wish every loan was as easy to apply for.

    Is spraying the grass with cobalt just not an option in this country?

    Why isn't everyone producing eggs?

    But the farm will still be there in 20 years time, where the hen house will be tired. To state the obvious, they are a different investment.
