    Is there any future in suckler cows ?

    The reason for carrying on as before I think is laziness, maybe mental, maybe physical, but laziness. Fed up hearing "we have always done it this way, / people will think we are daft/ too much work/ no need" but mostly what is meant is "I cannot be arsed".

    I'm nearly certain that the french say that the best beef comes from a once calved heifer. A value added opportunity?

    Before you start throwing time and money at it please check or bypass the engine oil cooler, on fords of that age the oil cooler was an oil pipe through the bottom of the radiator, wouldn't be the first time a short motor was fitted in a hurry that still had water mixing with oil.....

    Grain is too cheap, hence the low production cost of chicken?

    Non-starting digger

    It could just be needing a sniff of easy start to help her fire, maybe a wee bit of air in the system yet and maybe the pistons are wet with fuel, coupled with a starter not in the first flush of youth so not quite as quick as it used to be.

    Big reason is working on ground that would not be as dry as you would like and when turning single axle doesn't cut up the ground.

    Wondering about that too, cheap boards underneath, same as a cattle float, only thing is the joints between the sheets.

    I have a tipper with ally planks, just unsure if I want the flat as slippy. Rubber mat not a bad idea though.
