    yep that’s the one. I find him pretty competitive on everything.Saved me a fortune buying taps from him. Think they’re about1/4 of the price of plason taps

    Restricions on calves?

    depends a little bit on when they were born but I’d guess that after calves there’s not a huge amount of market locally for autumn borns At a premium until the grass starts to grow in April.

    Restricions on calves?

    4-5 weeks is the sweet spot it would seem. At 8-16 weeks somewhere they enter the void where they cost you a fair bit of money but seem to gain no value at all.

    Irish jumping into dairy, UK Beef price flying, NEW NORMAL?

    I won’t put culls through the ring live for this reason. I adore my stock, they work hard to look after me and my family. The least I owe them is the quickest most stress free and painless end. No judgment on those who choose other routes either but I am uneasy about moving calves still on milk...

    imo it’s the conditions when they are further sent on ie into Libya etc that’s the bigger issue

    going to have it as one big pad for the moment and use free standing a walls when funds allow. We’re using the money saved on more cow tracks,troughs and a slatted tank so the auto scrapers don’t over shoot. it will also give us more flexibility with blocks of land we have that come available...

    Ready for first cut. Ended up with an extra inch on the floor which cost us an extra 20 cube but suspect long term we won’t be complaining

    Rotary parlour help please!

    do you have anyone at cups off? Or just reliant on the computer to know they’re milked out? Our parlour guy is adamant you need someone on cups off

    More days/mornings off or shorter easier day

    i would be uneasy about data being “collected” about my herd without me agreeing to it. No issue if they ask and I chose to. I think washing times are often forgotten too. I think we around the 20minutes mark for a 16:32

    really curious to why all the farms agreed to share the report and the dealer to show people. Agreed though outputs can be a little different to what’s being said
