    Calf won't suck

    Have you tried drenching it with milk from a dosing gun? I did have a drench gun with a teat on it somewhere so you could squirt milk into its mouth through the teat. Worked quite well once they realised that the rubber teat meant they were going to gets a full belly from being drenched then...

    I think I recognise that trailer. If it's the one I think it is his lorry would be well suited to this thread.

    Kiss The Ground

    One thing I thought it was a bit farmer bashy in the beginning. It's not all farmers fault that the pursuit of cheap food had led to where we are now. Everyone who eats food grown on a conventional farm is to blame not just the farmers they are the ones voting with their wallets. And government...

    Kiss The Ground

    looks like he has lost a bit of weight in the film though :LOL: He blames travelling and eating shite food in airports and on planes I think I heard him say somewhere.

    I hate lambing indoors but lambing outside in snow or sleet is worse. Older ewes you would probably get away with but hoggs is jistt asking for trouble with you have somewhere you can put them under cover for a day or two.

    Biological barrier for sheep

    Isn't there something you can spray on arable crops to stop deer and rabbits grazing it? I remember seeing as advert for it in farmers weekly years ago but don't know what it was or what it was called.

    Farmer Roy's Random Thoughts - I never said it was easy.

    There seems to be more controlled burning on the hills here than there used to be even 10 years ago. And a lot more strips topped to give the place some green and variety possibly even a fire break but mostly for grazing I think. Common sense has prevailed at last hopefully it will in other...

    Well I'm the 4th here and I'd say the rot already has started with my dad. (Not his fault just bad luck and poor decisions from other family members and some bad advice) I sure as sh!t am not going to lose it though!

    Farmer Roy's Random Thoughts - I never said it was easy.

    My pumpkins have taken over as well. They are flowering over 6 foot away from where I planted them on the downhill side which explains why the rest of my stuff was smothered. The potatoes on the uphill side were left alone though. They seem to have just fallen over that way and kept going. I...

    Not Quite Farm Engineering or a Quick Bodge.

    Ours never did much because it could only be used from the plug that was wired to where the milking parlour was. Dad always assumed he couldn't weld but he just wasn't giving it enough power for fear of blowing the trips again or welding scrap because he didn't want to mess up good steel with...
