I have rented a shed out in the past and just do a set amount for the winter rather than complicating it by so much per head per week. It can be difficult to keep track of if stock numbers change often.
I used Brookfield renewables to sort out my 50kw system that was poorly installed and was very happy with what they did. Turned up on the day they said they would and came in less than the original quote after they worked out a way of using less power cable once they were on site.
When had a letter from our John Deere dealer a few weeks ago saying that if you gps gear got nicked they would currently struggle to replace it. I have now PIN protected our 6000 dome but it wouldn't probably stop it getting stolen.
When I put up my 120' by 180' cow cubicle building in 2005 the shed cost was reduced by 10%(10k) by having 2 rows of support steels for the roof down the lines of head to head cubicles. This allowed lighter steel to be used due to the extra support from the additional legs.
My 18 month old 130R had no 1 or 2 fuel line crack about 3 months ago. Our local dealers did it for free as they said it was a known problem with them. No extended warranty on mine, just the standard 12 months.
I spoke to a mate who used to work for the EA and he said they have not done a 'regulatory impact assessment ' for this proposal so they can't legally enforce it.
Muck gone on stubble's as normal here this autumn.
I have registered for the pilot. We are predominantly grass with some whole crop wheat, grazing based dairy. Despite rotational grazing , direct drilling grass reseeds the grasslands standards are a none starter. The mid level requires 1st cut at the end of May and then second cut at least 8...
I farm about 5 miles away from Hartington. We are on the Limestone plateau that stretches from just north of Ashbourne up to Buxton. It's mostly around 1000' above sea level and all classified as severely disadvantaged ground. However it's very productive Grassland with not a lot of trees and...
What ever system you run the key points I think for profitability are getting as much high quality forage in front of the cows as possible because it's usually a lot cheaper than concentrates and alternative feeds. Don't get side tracked by lots of the crap that salesmen try and flog you. If you...
It's a high farm, about 1300' . He did multicut silage successfully starting late April early May. He was doing quite a bit of overseeding with a Moore to keep the leys in very good order.
I think the farm did sell quite quickly but the buyers pulled out due to unforeseen health problems.
The farm had an Arla contract. I am not sure if that is available to whoever buys the farm as he is still using the contract on his new farm. Other buyers in the area would be Meadow Foods, Jacksons( local middle ground dairy) possibly First Milk or Yew Tree.
The area you have circled is where...
