    How to contact advertising standard agency

    I've been thinking the same thing since I saw Clarkson talk about "wildflower meadows". I suppose it conjures up images of Butterflies and Fairies for the public......then he chucks his sheep in to chew it down 🤷‍♂️

    When to stop spraying due to heat

    Finished T3's around 12:30pm. Might had been 20°c by then. Only a bit of teb, and if I leave it too long, i might as well not bother. Planning on some spring beans tomorrow morning.

    Machinery maintenance

    How long do you spend preparing for RT audit?

    We've done exactly that the last two visits. Been the same inspector tbh. Just leave the files and paperwork with him and leave him to it. Last time, I gave him my number and told him to call when he is finished. I wouldn't let him walk around the yard by himself. Not sure that is wise for...

    Is the job title Farm Worker outdated ?

    If you pee about with animals more than machinery - Stockman If you sit on your ass in a cab more than you dick about with stock - Tractor Driver. On more than one occasion I have ticked "Agricultural Engineer" on forms as it looks the most intelligent, and I hate spanners. Just put "Farmer"...

    How long do you spend preparing for RT audit?

    How long do you spend preparing for RT audit?

    I'm considering the same. Currently only on temp storage scheme so have to shift crop out - sell or into storage scheme. I would absolutely never try and find out, but maybe there is a magic farmer (with storage) somewhere who could turn my unassured grain into assured, for the split of the...

    How long do you spend preparing for RT audit?

    Took it to the supplier of such equipment, along with the moisture meter. They just put it in a bucket of water with a thermometer 🤷‍♂️. Tho I now have the official certificate I can photo copy each year
