    Biggest load of nonsense I’ve ever seen. I’ve 70less cattle albeit they’re dairy now and 100less ewes yet this year I’m over the limit. Folk happy enough to take slurry but ask them for their business id they soon go frosty.

    Robotic milking

    Am I missing something off the end of the right roller? Fell off a couple of times, guessing it’s meant to look like the left? De laval classic.

    Sheep dog

    Used to have 100 ewes and kept the dog going the best. Was usually feeding something so let him run out to gather. Only 20 now which isn’t much use, he wants to gather anything that moves, can keep him in work with cattle over summer but he’s a nightmare at this time of year.

    Deal between abp and dale farm for bull calves. Use their selected aa sires on some of herd and they will pay bonus on these animals.

    What did folk make of the dale farm email in today? Looks a good idea but I just get the feeling it will turn out like everything else and be another rod to beat us with.

    Live and learn. Bought ewe lambs cheap enough, getting near a fat price where I’ll just shift empties on.

    58 ewes lambs...... 38 empty 12 singles 8 doubles. That went well. [emoji30] 3 weeks and a beltex ram lamb that must have been too small obviously was a bad call. Knew he couldn’t cope with them all but thought that he would have got at least half of them.

    Can’t ever remember a night so clear in January but so mild. Will we pay for it come spring?

    Send the wife up now. I’ve a bad foot and awful balance. Hate cutting the cover but let her. It’s £60 not work the risk
