    Farming without bagged Fertiliser

    Can't say that they named the make of it. But the info was very interesting - the efficiency was significantly better than granular so assuming logistics can be sorted I'd be very keen to learn more.

    Farming without bagged Fertiliser

    Ah, ok. Does a normal sprayer work well - specific nozzles? There was a mention of a specific sprayer from NZ if I recall correctly, maybe not with the three farms but a contractor had bought one.

    Farming without bagged Fertiliser

    Listened to the podcast only a couple of weeks ago, looking forward to the data you're looking for this year. Who stocks it?

    Indeed! We're earlier this year anyway so will be difficult to say. But based on some simple maths, I think the difference in calf price is more than the lost 5 days anyway (Am I allowed to say that as a spring calver?!). It's just the cumulative 5 days over say 5 years and how many cows lost...

    On the issue of BB semen on crossbreed, we used Gaberal last year and calved with very few difficulties. Understand he doesn't throw the shapiest of calves but they were a god compromise and worth more than anything else. All on 2nd calves. Probably a bit of work with a calculator to see if...

    Putting slurry out on grazing and silage ground atm. Last round of fertiliser as soon as there's guaranteed rain. Got a direct drilled field that desperately needs rain and fert too.

    You've probably answered this many times before but can I ask what parlour you've got with that number of cows?

    Anyone had any fert deliveries recently? Who's competitive (all relative of course!)? Looking for TSP, 161616 and 24 0 14 +7S Thanks

    With all the talk of inflation are any of you fixing interest rates at the minute?

    First time Direct Drilling Grass

    Shower caught us out on Friday and Saturday was wet here. So plan is to spray today and drill next Monday. What fert/slurry do people recommend when DDing?

    First time Direct Drilling Grass

    So with regard to timing then, if I sprayed today and gotthe contractor in on Monday, would that be right?

    First time Direct Drilling Grass

    Good evening, I'm after some advice please. First time doing this so be gentle! Earmarked a field that is performing poorly and wanting to get away from ploughing/similar costly reseed methods. Usually put swedes/kale in as a break crop but this is an additional field we're trying to improve...

    Yes, rain has arrived at last but was thinking more of the last 3 weeks or so. Was very hot and dry with us.

    Yes, I had just assumed that the summer formula would allow for higher dry matter, so would be further out.

    My wedge is showing the same - should be taking many fields out but there's no chance it's anywhere near right. That makes sense. I should test the grass. That said, with the very dry weather I would have expected dry matter to be fairly high?
