    Mycoplasma bovis vaccination

    Are any forum members vaccinating their cattle for this? There was a big article in FW about it recently and I know we have had issues with bought in cattle in the past. What’s the vaccine like? Effective? Easy to administer? Expensive? Thanks

    Climate change and the adhb

    I'm just going to leave these attachments here. Surely a disgrace that the levy board is not trying to help Uk farmers reduce greenhouse gas emissions by undertaking a research program that we can all use? Peter Kendall et al need to pull their finger out!

    Calculating carbon emissions

    It appears that the biggest challenge to conventional agriculture in the future is not brexit or glyphosate getting banned, but the steady shift in the food consumption of people in the developed world (those with money and choice) from meat eating diets to vegan and plant based food. I had...

    TB...Brian May, what’s the answer?

    Dear Brian I’ve heard you spout your drivel about TB on many occasions but I thought on this occasion I would ask your advice. You’ve often stated Einstein’s oft overused and misquoted post that “stupidity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different outcome”. With this in mind...

    After pulling a leg off our old Blench 2 leg subsoiler, I have been thinking that it may no longer be the the bit of kit that suits our needs. In the past we have just subsoiled tramlines, muck piles and land after grass, but a decent machine might persuade us to do a bit more. I've looked...

    It must be very difficult to be as stupid as Matt Naylor

    just read his article in the weekly and I am flabbergasted by the moronic sentiments he has published this week. Point 1) big brands spending money on advertising has no relation to the farming sector promoting their wares. Wrong! The biggest companies in the World, who employ some of the...

    Hi I worked on a farm in Australia in 2001/2 and received $603 in superannuation fund. I have never got around to reclaiming this although having looked at the exchange rate this morning, it is worth an extra £125 compared to what it was when I was there. I received a letter this morning asking...
