    lexion 630

    Would think it would sit at 25 tons an hour in fit wheat but if width allows I recon you’ll get more out of a six Walker tucano cheaper

    Manitou or JCB

    Whats the stabiliser cow of the sheep world?

    Easy at lambing maybe but with lambs to look after worm move electric fence etc all winter I’m not sure they are that easy as they seem to be about so long. Wool shedding is the most important thing. Mules will do everything else quite happily

    my suggestions would be a depth wheel and a pivoting top link so that it can move so it’s easier to get in and out of the ground

    Joint ill lambs

    We are using it too but they told us it was equivalent to ultra pen ie long acting. I’ve been giving a big dose with metacam and if caught early done a great job

    Will game shooting go ahead this autumn?

    We are going ahead as usual with our 150 birds and a few people turning up in the yard on shoot days for a glorified walk. And the chap that does the game keeping in his spare time has just been laid off work with 75% pay, not much need for engineers to make formula 1 engine parts it seems

    MF Air cab suspension

    No I believe it’s just a warning light that comes on to show the compressor is not working which it’s obviously not because I’ve pulled the fuse out. All I did was take bung out of air tanks put another one in its place with a pipe going to a regulator and other put into the feed where the cab...
