    Best Legal shotgun caliber for dispatching weaner and fat pigs

    Shotgun and use a frangible shell, so would be safe at close quarters.

    autumn re-seeding

    Seen it grazed in Australia, but was sprayed with tallow before the cows grazed it, not sure you could do it here😬, but still had to carry a knife and oil just in case.

    Calf Prices

    Reared on high scc cow, when we were under was offered £25, when clear they made £690, no bugger wants the smaller cattle, then only want very forward stuff.

    autumn re-seeding

    Reduces nitrate leaching, bit of drought hardiness and grows like a weed, unlike most of the rest of the herbs.

    Slaughter house in Taunton, they take most of the calves locally.

    Calf Prices

    Would be surprised, we have been losing £200-£300 tb b/w, that was the difference this year for our tb to clear cattle, unless it suck breed or fit to knock over it may be different.

    Calf Prices

    Best option rear them for 8 weeks, then Hopkins. Unless you can set up a calf unit on a different holding number to clean them, guessing Buitalaar will be charging to take them next year.

    autumn re-seeding

    Reseed this year boston plantain and white clover, likely to be treated as a annual or 2 year crop, just trying a different angle on summer crops, as had four grazing out rape from same paddock which helped the extended the round.

    Jersey Thread - For all things Jersey

    Are the Danish poorer at calving ease? Mate has pedigree herd and uses blues over anything he doesn't want to breed from and doesn't seem to have any calving problems. Personally find more calving problems with Angus than the Herefords over our monkey cows.
