    Shearwell website

    Just out of interest, what can the border software do that the farmworks can't? I'm guessing that if it is something that will make life better with farmworks then they may be able to tweak it abit. They must take on board feedback from farmers and change stuff. As I noticed on the most recent...

    Priority Habitat

    Has anyone managed to successfully get Priority Habitat restrictions lifted, if the field/fields in question aren't a priority habitat (ie lowland species rich meadow that aren't species rich) Also how do I find out when said field became a "Priority Habitat"? Thanks

    Laser alignment of Fence Posts

    Prolapse ewes, much higher than normal?

    Just as a flip side to that, first year growing beet here. Only had one prolapse out of nearly 500. Been strip grazing beet since Xmas, then fed beet all through lambing too, on our last trailer load now, tipped out on grass. No cake so no scrums though

    What's your AFC

    Yea I use FieldAreaMeasure app. I think it’s very good for a free one. You can sit on your settee plotting out paddocks and then when you’re out putting them up the little GPS blue dot shows where to put them within a couple metres

    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    I couldn’t give 2 s****s about whether or not anyone can buy Easter eggs or not. As long as my friends/ family can get through this all unaffected. Im pretty sure most people come on this thread (me included) to look at lamb/beef prices, not the availability of Easter eggs

    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    Ringing tails.

    We must be horrendous sheep farmers then, as we’re one of the most Southerly commercial flocks on the mainland. If you’re ever down our way you are welcome to look around our hellhole, just watch out for the pile of dead ewes at the end our lane.....

    Do the goretex repair patches work on the ridge line “quiet-tex” material? Or even better do ridgeline make their own patches?

    Is anyone in beef and sheep willing to invest money?

    You could always cut out the two middle ones and just weld one in the centre to make it a three pronger to make life easier. But I’d wait for it to get out of warranty first. Also let insurance company know of modifications otherwise you may not be covered.
