New to dairy and just trying to glean a bit of your collective wisdom. What are peoples views on this practice pre calving.
Will be milking Pedigree Jersey heifers in a robot. Feed rep
has recommended steaming them up with concentrates 3 months prior to calving. Call me sceptical but I’m very...
Just been charged £72 litre for 4 bottles of Milagro. I’m certain when I placed the order he said £72 for 5l jars. Is this a pisstake or has Syngenta seriously upped their prices? Just noticed Farm Compare offering Nicosilfuron 40g 5 litres for about £50 🤦🏻♂️
Just remembered same person gave me permission ti use MCPA in rushes about 6 years ago. Surely if it was ok back then it’ll be ok now? Also seen environment document somewhere saying 2,4 D is ok near watercourses.
The lady has no idea, she just says suggest an alternative. Initially she asked me to take out mircam plus and I said fair enough I’ll just use ally max or equivalent on its own. Next thing she sends out consent but with refusal of both 🤦🏻♂️. She wants something that’s not toxic to wetlands 🤷🏻♂️
Hi folks, just been granted consent to plant some spring barley on SSSI. Unfortunately they have refused consent to let me use Ally Max as a herbicide as they deem it toxic to bugs etc. They have asked me to submit application for consent for alternatives. Thought the collective brains on here...
Recently put in new 50kva supply about 100 metres. New HV pole (on our land) and 50kva transformer. I then dug trench (through rock) and put in ducting to cabinet I had installed. They fed through LV cable from pile to box and installed fuses etc. They charged me £16,000 inclusive of VAT.
Engine running sweet and not under strain and oil temp gauge showing as normal. Still plenty power just this strange creaking noise and was only on raising dipper initially but then on raising boom and finally tracking. Very strange.
