I am on my 3rd Leatherman Supertool... since 2000!
Lost one which gutted me, then wore the 2nd one out and still have it a standby. Kids used to call it "Dad's Magic Pliers", used for anything and everything every day... Cutting barber wire, fixing a tractor, pulling a loose tooth... all in a...
Yes, subdivision for management.
Shading is less of an issue than plants touching underneath and causing hot spot here. Albeit some boar thistels were quite large last summer. MCPA+2,4 D will sort them buggers...
You are obviously grazing hard enough. Fouind it great for ewes and lambs...
5 meg is about 20ac, my site is on heavy clay and had not received any fert since 2014. 100 ewes do a reasonable job if they are on site early enough... Ideally, you need the flexibility to increase/decrease stocking as required.
I was told it was unlikely that the lower volatge would be an issue, other than the cable out to the sub station!!
However, it was a guy from teh old CEGB who told me about the problem with leccy fences in parallel to an HV power line... We have 1 132K line plus several 33K lines.
Thank you for that info, it is really useful as I fine tune my Tender... I know that the O&M Company are keen for my doing the work, so it's just getting a realistic quote in.
What is your preferred inter row broad spectrum herbicide?
I had a walk through the site last week, and may now change...
There is/was a some flexibility on this option I believe... I would have punted for a bigger area, and see what transpired as an agreement offer.
But we will see what next years offerings are when they publish they Offer in the Autumn.
