    Have I missed the bit where you say what website/brand you are recommending?

    Bullock acting odd

    Just spoke to the vet. He suggested Mg deficiency, which makes total sense. I had a store lamb years back that had an episode which was cleared up with multi vit. I don't know why I didn't think of that sooner. My mind just gravitated to the worst case scenario. Going to do a blood test to make...

    Bullock acting odd

    Could be listeria i guess, but seems unlikely. It's agitated more than dopey with listeria like symptoms. I would love to get rid but not willing to let it travel in its current conditions.

    Bullock acting odd

    It's not as bad as that, I am sure.

    Bullock acting odd

    I have a fat bullock, lim x dairy, coming up to 30 months, will be fit in a week or 2. In the last few days she has been acting fairly skittish, crashing around the yard, slipping, scrabbling about, looking to climb every wall etc. They havent been turned out yet as they will all be gone soon so...

    White clover as cover crop

    How did you guys get on with this? Are you still doing it nearly 10 years later?

    We get it here too. Maybe in future plant grass without clover, clear it up in the first year, then drill clover afterwards.

    Securing a load in a pick up. Tie down points

    I have recently purchased a mk 7 hilux. When idly poking about in the back I realised that it seems to only have 4 lashing points. As I have a roller shutter, that appears to blank off the front 2. Plus they are all half way up for some inexplicable reason. Currently, if I went to the builders...

    Taking Refugees in

    I was musing on this yesterday. There are many potential complications, but when it comes down to it, it seems like the right thing to do.

    Amarok opinions

    How reliable are they and do they cost a lot to keep on the road? Basic maintenance is fine but I'm not keen on the idea constantly chucking money at an expensive motor once purchased

    Which New Pick-Up Is The Best Vehicle To Get?

    Anyone driving a 2012 - 2015 3.0 Hilux automatic and what are your thoughts? How does the auto compare to the manual in that model?

    Watery mouth prevention

    Pre-emptive use of Spectam is why we are not allowed to buy it any more.

    VW Touareg Farm truck

    I have been shopping in the £10k -£15k bracket for a pickup. Mainly looking for a 3 litre Hilux but it is pretty though going. The demand for pickups is crazy. Your money doesn't go far. I am gradually moving towards a Touareg V6. So much more car for the money involved. If you can get a Euro 6...

    Which New Pick-Up Is The Best Vehicle To Get?

    I was looking at a 2015 3ltr invincible for £15,000. It was up for 15 mins before I called and somehow I was second. Bloke turned up and paid the asking price. I can't keep up with this. I might have to just buy cheap to put off the decision a couple of years.
