    Concrete floor silage pit joint sealing

    I've not had much response in the Buildings section so trying my luck here. We have a silage pit that was put up some years ago by ourselves but we didn't seal the joints in any way. I'm proposing cutting down the joints with a stihl saw and filling the resultant slot with some sort of effluent...

    Conrete floor silage pit joint sealing

    We have a silage pit that was put up some years ago by ourselves but we didn't seal the joints in any way. I'm proposing cutting down the joints with a stihl saw and filling the resultant slot with some sort of effluent resistant joint sealer. What should I be looking at? There are some bits...

    Sunday Times article on dairy - anyone with subscription?

    The Sunday Times have an article today titled "Is giving up dairy really good for you?" Anyone care to cut and paste please? It doesn't look a great article from the opening (free) paragraph tbh but I'd like to view anyway. It mentions a study showing dairy doesn't raise cholesterol levels, so...

    Monthly landline packages

    Has anyone got any recommendations for a landline package? We've been with Clearbusiness for quite a while now. We almost left them in 2017 but they promised to keep their nose clean and behave if we stayed with them. They've kept the deal up until a few months ago but have slipped back into...

    How are those beavers getting on?

    Weather's rather inclement round here today with no sign of let-up. I'm just wondering how all those beavers are getting on with their efforts in preventing flooding?

    Easy screeds

    Just after people's opinion's on which easy screed to get. Altrad Belle seems to be available everywhere with aluminium beams. MBW Screedemon looks similar but with magnesium beams. Should I go for Al or Mg or does it not make much difference? Any other models I should be considering? Any advice...

    Roller screeds

    What is the verdict on these for laying concrete? We've been using a vibrating beam screed for a lot of years for laying concrete with good results. Unfortunately the beam we have has got bent and either needs replacing or we go for a different system. The roller screed looks versatile in that...

    Carbon emissions article in Money Week

    What an absolute breath of fresh air to read an article like this in this week's Money Week. The author has simply stated the actual facts instead of the utter crap that we're all used to. Not a single mention of faming never mind livestock and methane.

    Stephen Carr in Farmers Weekly

    He's written about the NBA's appalling kick in the balls for every livestock farmer in the country. I've read the conclusion of his piece several times over but can't work out whether he's being serious or not. If he's being serious it shows that it isn't only the NFU and NBA that don't...

    Thistles autumn cleanup

    Got some thistles to moider, late in the year I know. Four years ago we used Transfer mid Oct to try to tidy up some thistles in perm pasture. Much to my surprise it did a cracking job, no thistles since. The thistles I want to kill are mature but not seeded. Am I right in thinking spraying now...

    MS Office 365?

    Ok, quick one. Got round to setting my new puter up (it's sat in the office for well over a year) and I need to get Office onto it. Main uses are Excel, Word and I'm gonna have to use Outlook as Windows Live Mail is long gone sadly. There's a 30 day trial on the puter but I'm guessing that could...

    Methane - brilliant interview with Frank Mitloehner

    This may well have been posted on here before, if so apols. Frank Mitloehner is doing sterling work in counteracting the vegan media driven methane bollox that we're being battered with. This interview absolutley nails every conceivable angle in this "debate". He has a really good way of...

    Glyphosate wetter

    Soz, I know this has come up many times, just can't be bothered searching. When using cheap glyphosate at say 3 l/ha what's a cost efficient wetter to use with it? Everyone has been enthusiastic about LI700 from memory, what sort of price is it currently and what rate? Any other options?

    New Stream Renewables

    Has anyone got any experience of this company? We're about to renew our turbine PPA and are prob going with the FIT export tariff (company yet to be decided). Wholesale prices are gash currently. We've been on a tracker tariff with Limejump this year and it's been poor to say the least. NSR are...
