    Dabro slitter aerator

    Recently bought this second hand, seems to be doing a good job. Replaced some bolts that were worn/loose holding the blades on, But still lost a blade somewhere 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ I've googled but can't find where to buy new blades, anyone got any ideas?

    Easycare ewe lambs and copper.

    Sheep? Sure to die, We've had both texel and Suffolk crossed ewes get into one and die, maybe just our bad luck, but I wouldn't want to risk it 😢

    I dare say a cow copper bucket would kill them off.

    Day old duckling prices?

    What they like to look after day to day? I've heard they're a bit simple 🤣 Got a few chickens, eggs are selling well, got some copper blacks in the incubator. Was thinkin of some Cayuga ducks for nice dark eggs to sell too

    Advice for new converts?

    Not bad, rotated ewes and lambs pretty well. All ewes are inside again, lambing starts on Thursday. We've soil tested the whole farm, gonna try get that sorted asap, hopefully with pH sorted and p&k where they need to be, we'll see more improvement. Still struggling for grass in winter, ewes...

    Lambing rechargeable torch recommendations

    I've got 2, the head torch and the warrior X, bloody good torches. Just to note, they charge through the on/off button, took me ages to figure it out! The warrior X will throw light for a kilometre, seems about right!
