    Hydraulic fitting size

    Thanks @Eden.Agri.AD. So when you say measure the head...should I measure the ‘opening’ on the female fitting? Basically got a postknocker with a free flow return female fitting but no male fitting on my tractor, so need to confirm its 3/4 inch male fitting that’s needed. Thanks

    Hydraulic fitting size

    Stupid question coming from a shepherd. At what point on the fitting do you measure do determine if it’s a 3/4 inch size, which I think it is. It’s a female fitting im trying to measure. The pipe off the fitting is 3/4inch so does that mean the fitting is automatically 3/4 inch? Hope that makes...

    Straw spreading options for loader tractor

    Just wondering what people’s thoughts are on straw spreaders/choppers when we just have the one loader tractor. The warthog loader mounted spreader looks spot on but they aren’t currently making the round bale model, we’re on all round bales here. I think Malgar used to make them as well but...

    Hopefully you can read the two different specs above, what’s people’s thoughts?...one is £15 dearer than the other. I know which I prefer looking at the ingredients, just checking I’m not missing anything. @neilo

    Livestock handling pens, wash down

    Livestock handling pens, wash down

    Also posted in buildings and infrastructure..... Hello. Current livestock handling pens are concrete but with no sort of drainage system so the run off just disperses off onto the rest of the stone yard at the moment. They are impossible to clean because there’s hardly any fall and water just...

    Handling pens run off tank

    Hello. Current livestock handling pens are concrete but with no sort of drainage system so the run off just disperses off onto the rest of the stone yard at the moment. They are impossible to clean because there’s hardly any fall and water just stands there making it a nightmare with sheep...

    Tupping indoors

    Cheers Neil, It was more the feeding I guess I was most concerned about. Don’t want to lower the scanning percentage greatly by having them tupped inside instead of on plenty of good autumn grass

    Tupping indoors

    Well what I really meant was to just pen them in their tupping groups of 60/1 ram and let them get on with it to be honest. Usually change the raddle every 7 days as well. Busy getting suckler calves ready for sale during tupping time (late October) so don’t want to be stuck in the sheep shed...

    Tupping indoors

    Anyone tried it? We’ve a flock of several Lleyn ewes, we single sire mate about 800-900 ewes and don’t physically have enough fields, nor enough grass wintering available on other local farms. So thought I might try tupping them indoors on good silage and a little feed. Then turn them back out...
