Just been speaking to a few people over the last couple weeks about a 3m drill to work across a mixed farm, so cereal, cover crops, fodder crops, stewardship and a bit of grass.
Now the grant numbers are out, if I am right, its £12,054 contribution toearsd the drill..
Net prices are as...
I have little to do with slurry but I have some off lying grass that has been let out all summer. Went to fence it ready to move ewes onto it abs the tenant had treated it to a dose of slurry through a trailing shoe by looks of it.
How long till it’s safe to graze, in lamb ewes, dry ewe lambs...
I’ve never killed a bullock so no idea on how to estimate carcass weight.
No means to weigh him but he is 28 months old and booked to go and be sold direct of farm

Manage to get 35 acres spun on yesterday onto stubbles that had been scratched over to get a bit of tilth.
Plan was to roll last night but events prevented that.
We’ve had about 18mm of rain overnight and this morning so it’s going to chit in another 48 hours I bet so no chance to roll...
Last few shearling rams ready to go.
