    Sad Day

    I’ve driven a combine every harvest since I was 17, I’m 52 now and won’t be this year. With a dairy that takes up more of my time (and money) running my own combine is not really viable now. My last combine left this morning. It’s going to be a tough summer on a trailer but probably best in...

    I suspect I may have a small issue brewing with an area I own. The land is bordered by a river which is owned by a fishing club, I have the land registry map and the property register which states that I do NOT own the riverbed. This has always been my understanding, the question is where does...

    Frit Fly

    I have a field of new grass seeds which is slowly being munched by frit fly. A change in policy with the dairy means that this particular field has had to go from a 2 year Italian Ley to a longer term grazing Ley. Normally I wouldnt do this, also due to having to cut everything as many times as...

    Hare coursing petition

    Just had this sent to me. The coursing on and around Salisbury plain has been appalling this year. With numerous cars and dogs seized by a very proactive police force. But it is time for the government to think more about the rural population and the issues we have that don’t occur within the...

    QR code

    Mrs Bg has just had to create a QR code for the Church just in case one of the very few visitors wants to enter it on the NHS Covid app. It got me thinking about the farm. The .Gov website says businesses should have 1. There are few days when we don’t get a delivery and there are often visitors...

    Iphone photos

    I have an Iphone 8. I use chrome to view TFF which I prefer over safari, if I want to upload a photo to a thread I have always used the attach files button, and selected the photo. Now when I do this and press done on the photo viewer it shuts down chrome. So I cant now upload photos. Any ideas...

    Pre Em Nozzles

    I have been looking at pre em nozzles. Have tried all sorts over the years from flat fans to Hawk nozzles then Defy nozzles. For the last couple of years I have been using guardian air 04 at 150l which seem to be ok and not too bad with drift in the autumn. I was reading the Syngenta website and...

    Marconi/ Dr Egleton

    Some time ago i had a phone message from Dr Egletons son saying that sadly the Dr had passed away. He was trying to repatriate all the Marconi meters with their rightful owners. I have called the number a few times and never had a response to the messages I have left. I now think I have misheard...

    Molasses pump

    we are going to start feeding molasses. An on ground tank would be best for the location we have but the the molasses would need a pump. The question is what sort of pump do I use. It's is 1.3 kg/l so fairly thick, do I need something more substantial than an ordinary water pump? Thanks for the...

The alternator went on my combine this morning. With only 40 ac to go I was not best pleased. There was not one in frome so...
