    Can’t you just run them through formalin for scald, even with a big bath.

    Didn’t people used to use ethofumasate to kill meadowgrass in a ryegrass ley.

    Your current weather.

    No think just got to get on with it. Got some hay to cut so crops will have to take their luck now

    Seen some spring barley burning off near Thirsk today. Warm with a stiff drying breeze here.

    Drove over skipton way yesterday to a wedding and very little grass about, especially grazing. Always a rich grass area around there.

    State of your crops -2022

    Saw some winter barley on blow away sand near Scarborough dead yesterday. Don’t think it will combine for another week though.

    Thought you would be organised. That’s what puts me off buying stores in. Take some keep but not enough for the whole winter.

    Yes I agree, how do you come on with the store lambs. Do you keep them away from your own breeders.

    You can buy in problems though unless you keep enough gimmers to fill the void

    Feed for lambs aside do people find pushing them earlier a more profitable system or do the stragglers bring it down later on. Vet med must be less.

    Drought

    It’s a dead cert I would say. August can be wettest month of the year.

    Sorry didn’t mean to be Arsey. It’s always a juggling act, they are fairly understocked when turned out mid April so not overgrazed. Our clay doesn’t warm up early so we need 3-4 weeks with sheep on it really to make it worth bothering.

    Well it fits for us. If you can afford to rest it for that long then you have to make the profit per acre up another way.
