    Solar Panel barn

    Possibly, as I said I have no idea. If we manage to buy the place we have found the accountant seems to think we should have enough room for around 300 what ever they ares 😂

    Solar Panel barn

    I have absolutely no idea 🤷‍♂️ it was just a recommendation from our accountant to make some relatively easy money! I only have his figures to go on and it all hinges on our buying a farm with suitable buildings to install the roof mounted panels. In fact this is my first time to this part of...

    Solar Panel barn

    Here in France the power companies put up the building for free but you need to sign a 20 year contract for them to harvest the solar and you need to do all other works to the building as you only get a frame and roof. We are looking at it if we manage to buy our own place but installed on...

    Grammer seat

    Push the lever all the way down and wait until it is on the floor, normally it will then automatically restart and pump up to match your weight, you can then use the same lever but with smaller movements to set the height up and down. I have three and they all work like that so unless yours has...

    Grammer seat

    Have you tried letting it all the way down and reinflating? Mine has been in for 1500 hours and is still as comfy as it was when it went in.

    I have a feeling he may now be out of luck, certainly for the withdrawal agreement terms. Might face being chucked out if he’s not careful. MSA are pushing for our son’s cds now, he only turned 18 last week. Hope for his sake and that of his kids he got it sorted out.

    Not that I live over there but I have always been told it is too acid to grow sensible Lucerne over in the west. Seems plenty around us here 4 hours east. It is better in drought conditions but with 3 month with absolutely no rain and average temperatures anywhere from high 20’s to mid 30’s even...

    As Roger has said, he is here and is subject to the withdrawal agreement terms. All I am saying is, before they turn their lives upside down, move country and invest all they have and a lot more potentially, perhaps a little advice from those who pay our generous subsidies as to what is possible...

    Perhaps you need to speak with the DDT to see what needs to happen in so far as gearing the right to farm and how it works with the subsidies now that you are coming from a third country.

    My wheat last year did about 6 tonnes, bought seed, sprayed a pre em and it had 250kgs of urea didn’t put sprayer back on after pre em. Quite cheap to grow, pity I sold it at 190€ it’s considerably more now 😞.

    What would it take.

    It’s just farming….. specifically animal farming. You just have to pick your self up and get in with it. It’s taken decades to realise I am not alone with my problems 😂 thank you though.

    What would it take.

    I can raise you that for this years calving but I don’t really want to relive it typing it up. However it did result in 2 dead génisse and a dead calf in the space of one vets visit in the middle of the night, at least my annual crisis is hopefully over and it was indoors.

    Just to add, I would strongly recommend you picked your professional advice very carefully and ensure that they are fully up to speed and fully insured in case the worst happened. There is a very knowledgeable and helpful man on her who discovered this to his detriment.

    Tbh I was just being nosy 😂. You would have thought with the amount of farms that he’s got up as sold he would be right on getting a new one up 🙄. Assuming I am thinking of the same person!
