Situation Vacant *Job Alert* Muck Spreading, East Yorkshire

Looking For Work Livestock/GFW from end March

  • 78
  • 0
Hello all,
I'll be finishing off a few projects (Hedgelaying, mostly) come the end of March/beginning of April and I'd like to get back to working with livestock. The bulk of my previous experience is one year working mainly with beef cattle, sucklers and also rearing bought calves. Job included all day to day husbandry as well as fencing, maintenance, repairs, basic mechanical jobs, grass work, and anything else as needed. I'd be keen to do similar and/or possibly learn the ropes with sheep as well. I'd really welcome the opportunity to learn and develop as well as just doing what needs doing every day.

Plenty of experience of tractor and loader work, (feeding and bedding with chopper, yard scraping, mucking out, carting muck/bales, moving machinery on low loader, mowing, etc...

The Doe Show has been a firm fixture in the agricultural, construction and groundcare industries calendars since 1960. Held during the first week of February every year, the Doe Show attracts huge crowds to our head office at Ulting, Essex and is by far the largest agricultural, construction and groundcare machinery dealer in the UK, possibly Europe.

Given the current pandemic and restrictions we find ourselves under, it would be irresponsible to hold our 2021 Doe Show in the physical sense. However, we are delighted to be able to bring the 61st Doe Show to our customers, albeit in a different way than we have over the past 60 years. Finding new ways of engaging with our customers excites us and we are...

Vote on the future of AHDB Horticulture

Have your voice heard. Should the Horticulture levy continue?


A ‘yes’ is a vote for change and a ‘no’ could see the end of a statutory levy. I encourage you to consider the facts and to use your vote. At a time of immense change, the loss of a central organisation that invests in applied research for the benefit of all would be a considerable loss

A vote ‘Yes’ means A vote ‘No’

Looking For Work Lambing Placement

  • 0
Hi !
My name is Natalie and I’m a first year vet student at the RVC in London.
I’m posting to see if there are any lambing and/or calving placements still available? Preferably in the north (I live in Yorkshire) or a little further afield if accomodation is available.
I have helped at a friend’s farm in the past so have a little experience with driving a quad & trailer for feeding rounds, bottle feeding lambs and even got to deliver 2 which was just incredible! I still have a lot to learn though and i am exciting and willing to do so.
I’m available 20/03-25/04/21
If anyone has any availabilities or knows of anyone to contact I’d really appreciate it :)

At the end of 2018, ScanStone moved their assembly line into a new state of the art building adjoined to the existing buildings, complete with air-sourced underfloor heating and all the necessary tools and lifting gear the building creates an excellent working environment for the assemblers.

No guards or belts need to be...

Report shows environment subsidies provide more stable income than direct payments

  • 91
  • 0

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

Subsidies paid to farmers for protecting the environment lead to more stable incomes compared with payments based purely on the number of ha being farmed, according to a new study of farms in England and Wales. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The research, from Rothamsted Research, the University of Reading and Newcastle University, also shows that farmers shouldn’t put all their eggs in one basket, as those diversifying into a wider variety of crops or livestock receive more consistent year-to-year incomes – as do those who reduce their use of fertiliser and pesticides. Lead author and PhD student, Caroline Harkness said: “Farmers are facing increasing pressures due...

Letter to the Editor

January 2021

Have you seen the exciting new AHDB ‘We Eat Balanced’ £1.5 million marketing campaign launched on January 4? Anyone watching social media over the past two weeks won’t be surprised its stimulated debate with huge support, outrage, passion and enthusiasm all stirred up.

We want to inject balance into the debate about red meat and dairy – to start having a different national conversation and put farming’s voice out there. The campaign is being run across TV, print and in retail as well as social media, so millions of consumers will have the opportunity to see it. We know 98 per cent of households enjoy meat and dairy but some are looking to reduce, and this is who our campaign speaks to.

Farmers and consumers alike have congratulated us for airing...

Variety ‘watch list’ for wheat yellow rust released

  • 208
  • 0

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

AHDB has issued a yellow rust watch list to help flag winter wheat varieties most likely to perform out of line with the disease ratings published in the Recommended Lists. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The watch list, which orders varieties based on yellow rust levels from the three worst RL trials (for each variety), can help identify those most likely to benefit from closer monitoring, says the levy board. It follows the development of a new rating calculation approach that better reflects the diverse and dynamic nature of the UK’s rust populations, announced at the launch of the online edition of the RL 2021/22 in Dec.
