    Panic buying straw.

    Hill land planted with trees 🧐 no! Leave the hill farmers where they are. Breeding stock in the hills and finishing stock on the lower ground like it used to be.

    Interest Rates Predicted To Rise Very Soon

    Depends what you want to do with the money... I had some that I never intended on selling but had to go towards a house deposit last year so had to do it officially. The premium you pay for getting sovereigns or Britannia's over other coins or bars is peanuts if you ever did need to use them for...

    Interest Rates Predicted To Rise Very Soon

    Sovereigns or gold Brittanias have no capital gains tax on them when you sell something about them being British currency means they are exempt. Silver Brittanias are exempt as well but you have to pay vat on them when you buy them.

    Carbon trading

    Exactly why I say it's a trap.

    Carbon trading

    It's almost all greenwash at this stage. They don't even know what they are looking for never mind how they are going to pay for it.

    Carbon trading

    I say this on every thread about selling carbon credits but don't do it it's a trap. Make bloody sure you really do have them and you don't need to offset yourself and your own farm first. Then be very very careful of you sell them to the wrong place they are gone for a long time and it's up to...

    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    Maybe 🤷‍♂️ Why would I need to phone? I know pretty close what trade is going to be on the Tuesday as I get a text from them every Monday with average lamb prices from welshpool for that day like I posted the screenshot of earlier. Very similar markets with very similar lambs sold. Often get...

    Why is it normal for the auctioneer to phone every week? I've never had one phone me. How would they find time to call everyone :unsure:

    Working ram lambs

    When I was about 12 dad had 220 ewe lambs lamb in march/April and they weren't supposed to be anywhere near a ram. Eventually found a ram lamb with no visible balls in with them at shearing time. He had served the bloody lot himself his balls must have been up inside him.

    Working ram lambs

    Risk of a non working ram lamb aside a fit and able ram lamb reared on forage not fat and fed out if a trough would/should do 50 ewes. Something overfed and unfit then 20odd is probably enough. You'd just have to watch for repeats as they come into their next cycle and accept if anything goes...

    quick fixes, bodges and creations

    Yes that is bits of an old steel diesel tank and old angle iron used to replace the lid on my old rotten muckspreader. The whole thing is f**ked with rust so I wasn't going to spend money on steel to fix something that will only do another season maybe. It would have been a lot easier if I had...

    Line one Herefords

    Fair enough your reasons make sense. I'm not on an arable farm here and the cows main job is to clean up after the sheep and eat what they won't. More native bred cattle get fat but don't get obese doing that. The calves aren't much to look at but still make decent enough finished cattle at...

    Line one Herefords

    What's wrong with doing it that way though? You will get better calves with bigger cows that aren't small and dumpy of course, but the fat dumpy cattle can be wintered cheaper if you feed them to lose weight over winter. Not just feeding them but smaller cattle sh!t less and use less bedding as...

    Line one Herefords

    Let them get fat over summer and slim them down over winter after they are weaned. A fat cow can store a lot of feed on her back and it's quite natural for a ruminant to lose condition over winter. @scholland is the expert at that.
