    Farmhouse - render

    Thanks for all the replies, given me some food for thought. Its a pity that the only old (pre-render) photo of the house we've got doesn't really show the quality of the stonework. (Edit to my first post - I'm told that the render was 1950s not 20s)

    Farmhouse - render

    To get an idea of the type of stone etc, this is a bit of the downstairs wall inside, exposed as a bit of a feature in one room

    Farmhouse - render

    Ours is a fairly old farmhouse, stone ground floor and I believe cob upstairs. In the 1920s (I think) the exterior was completely rendered, and now has very little character - arguably fairly ugly - and of course needs painting every so often. Its due a lick of paint soon and I've been...

    Sawtoothed grain beetle

    Thanks for the replies, got someone coming out to have a look. Another question, stupid one maybe - can heating in stored grain just be caused by weevil/grain beetle, or is there always additional microbial activity creating the hotspot? ie if you have a hot area, you sort out a bug problem...

    Sawtoothed grain beetle

    Ah. Blocks. Some of the side is below ground level though. Also one part of it has some boards across but I guess maybe that could be sealed the same as the top

    Sawtoothed grain beetle

    Its a sort of elongated bin, galvanise two sides and concrete two sides. Anyone know of any such contractors in the south west? The only ones I can find googling it are in Oxon and the east. Yes the store has aeriation and hopefully it's keeping the problem at bay but we haven't had many...

    Anyone using a lighter 100/150hp tractor with old cultivator drill this season

    What hp should a 3m Kuhn/Accord combi (or similar) require? (Decent medium loam, moderate slopes in places)

    Sawtoothed grain beetle

    Just come across this thread searching for grain weevil/beetle. Have a 100t ish heap of wheat with a patch that has an insect infestation. I hadn't actually realised that fumigating in the heap was an option - was thinking along the lines of augering it around and treating it with...

    E 3120 Insurance - Extended Warranty

    Sorry for the delayed reply; this is what their website says:

    E 3120 Insurance - Extended Warranty

    I moved to CNC Asset Management following advice on here around 18 months ago. The premium was I thought fairly reasonable (similar to what we were paying our farm insurers before they stopped covering turbines). But no experience of making a claim.

    E 3120 Insurance - Extended Warranty

    For 18 months or so we've insured our turbine with CNC Asset Management - the basic "Operational All Risks" policy, but when I asked for a quote they also quoted for an extended warranty cover - see attached photo. At the time I didn't take it out, but having heard some stories of repair bills...

    Growing grass seed

    Dunno, I was wondering that. Had Hampshire and Kent(?) in my head but absolutely no idea where I'd heard either of them. Is it a chalk thing then?

    Growing grass seed

    Am I right in thinking that UK grass seed production is concentrated in one or two smallish regions? If so why?
