    Poll Dorset shearlings and ewe lambs required, farmschool

    Hi. I have the shearlings and will have the ewe lambs - not weaned yet. I'm not in Polled Dorset country but they are not pedigree so more affordable. Don't listen to the others, Polled Dorsets are great sheep. All the best. Nick 07816 749500

    Farm overheads (fixed costs) per acre for a non-dairy livestock and arable enterprise?

    First step may be to change the way you milk. Lower cost system or higher value contract. What's available - Organic, cheese...?

    Farm overheads (fixed costs) per acre for a non-dairy livestock and arable enterprise?

    For 18/19 ours were £153.38 as calculated by the Farm Business Survey. I entered £200 - 250 in the poll. Leaving dairying is a very different world. You'll need to cut costs to the bone to make a decent profit.

    Wrapping straw

    Isn't there something else you can use in the baler instead of net? That would be the best solution for a weatherproof bale.
