    Winter beans and weeds

    Agree with you there, with fert nearing £400/t and I'm guessing shortages occurring down the line in other inputs then Beans will be a safe bet. Grew them for the first time here, they got cooked by a hard frost and east wind but didnt do too badly. Putting 150 ac in of Tundra

    Exactly, then he "blocks" you, I mean, it's the sort of thing teenagers and youngsters do, pathetic

    Doggy holocaust

    Agreed, I know a vet she had 2 litters in 2 seaons, but gather she's struggling to find a home for some of her 2nd litter. It's not really surprising another, another family I know bred their Lab bitch and ended up with £28k but it was only a one off and think she's been done now. Should also...

    He mentioned to me on Twatter that he very rarely comes on here as he said too much name calling etc. But yes, his advice was to talk to my NFU local bod and my MP!!! He did offer to speak to me but I wasn’t interested in yet more waffle. Am now blocked by him

    He never will answer a straight question with a straight answer instead preferring to deflect, a commonly used tactic by people who are faced with awkward questions, you see it in all walks of life. The waffle is just that waffle bullsh*t baffles brains type stuff, amateur

    If loose, I just get the MIG out weld new lumps on either side the grind back down until the point is a tight fit. I also use tin shims, work well. Just changed all mine today.

    Combinables Price Tracker

    It'll be down, always an element of "insider" knowledge and the market price pretty much always goes up or down a day or two before the news. Just something I have noticed

    Yes, am sure mine is

    TX6* equivalent

    Only going from what my NH bod told me, he didnt regard the CSX that highly but then the CX6080 is not the same as the other CX's which I am led to believe are a bit more sturdy. Saying that the CSX I gather is one of NH's best selling combines (abroad sales are high) and based loosely on the TX

    TX6* equivalent

    CSX an CX are quite different beasts

    TX6* equivalent

    CX6080 wont be that expensive, a good TX65+ will set you back a fair bit. I have a 6080 and it's very simple to maintain and goes well, 6 walker mind so quite wide, we had it doing 1000ac /yr but only doing half that now.

    Ah but if they're buying unassured and then blending away with assured then this is the issue. It happens, dont ask me how I know

    It hasnt so far so what do you expect to change, premium is a dirty word for RT, market price is not premium. Premium was mooted when the scheme was first being aired

    Cab Glass Problems

    Pilkingtons will make you any screen you want, classic division, they'll charge you £2-3k to make the mould/form but screens after were actually cheap as chips, eg. porsche 917 screen laminated 6mm was £250 each, am sure a tractor screen being bigger but less complex wouldnt be too expensive but...

    Winter beans

    Cut most of my winters (autumn sown) last week, still have 20ac of spring sown Tundra's to combine, still green, reckon a couple of weeks time. Some were very short (we had a very cold East wind + frost) which really hammered them. Think they will have just about wiped their face. Enjoyed...

    Almost every farmer I know has an official store and then a 2nd store!!! Wonder how much CTL is still lurking about, Atrazine was another, one chap I know had a lot of dynamite from the 60/70's in his store, it turned to fluid and then re-crystallized, eventually some bods came and removed it...
