    Blowfly prevention

    £1.50 seems expensive to me i must agree, but a 5lte click extra bottle at £230 average will dose 136 ish ewes @ 50+kg =£1.69 head

    Blowfly prevention

    At the end of the day its horses for courses and what works for one man isnt the same for another. They state 3 months pre shearing is advised but unless you had a massive problem you wouldn't dip pre shearing anyway .

    Sheep conveyors

    I'd love a one however the cost puts me off, ive spoken to a couple of people who have them and they say the only problem is small lambs are no good going through them as they can just drop straight through even when closed up. I think justifying a one comes down to a compromise of animal...

    Sheep Dip Enzyme

    There used to be a Enzyme that could be used but it is now no longer available to be usedand has not been legal in the uk for a long time now, hence why vets and dip manufacturers dont know much about it. It still is available in Europe. There is nothing at all now that can be added to a dip...

    Water going to be off 5 days

    In my experience we had a water disruption we explained that we had pigs housed and the needed water at first they weren't co-operating, once we explained it would turn into a welfare issue and animal welfare would be contacted they soon arranged a 25,000ltr bowser to be deliverd.

    How much to pay an arable farmer!

    I agree there!, sounds like he will gain all the benifits and you are taking a rist if it dosent establish well. Depending what lay you use you will be paying for and fixing N in the ground for him to use. If there is one thing i have learnt that is a good grass lay is not cheap to establish!
