    2020 Polaris Ranger Diesel

    Demoed both, haven’t bought either yet. Hated handbrake on Gator, put me off it completely to be honest. Polaris would be my pick but don’t know if it’s worth the extra money compared to petrol

    Pity an ex workmate couldn’t get me decent discount. Could you not drop the next batch coming out of the beds, I’ll take a punt on the seconds then, I’ve another wee stretch to do.

    bit of fencing today. Found the sheep wire in a shed during a clear out in spring.Dad reckoned it was at least 25yrs old. Snippers couldn’t cut it, yet go through new wire no problem. He talks the odd bit of sense, stuff isnt made like it used to be.

    cubicle bedding choice

    Anyone tried peat bedding? We are using a local supplier for a sawdust/lime mix but it’s got very coarse and starting to see abrasions. Cell count usually pretty good though so scared to change too much.

    I found if there is scutch in the field even if it is burnt off it comes back quick. Anytime I’ve done it, found after 3years it starting to take over.

    What you think of Germans? I bought some, so far pleased with them, big saving compared to local stock

    Yep not enough round yard to graze and a short walk down road involves passing 18houses.

    cows got out last night. Fortunately no damage done and they merrily walked back once they had their little dance. Nightmare trying to count them after.
