    New information about local nature recovery and landscape recovery

    This is a very good point. @Janet Hughes Defra without BPS how will you ensure minimum environmental standards (cross compliance) are upheld for all those who don't sign up to the new schemes e.g hedge/water course buffers? Seems a major issue to me and it's hard to see how it can practically...

    Cow - The film

    What if the cow was doing all the things an average person does? Hour or more commute every day, stuck in traffic jams with blood pressure going through the roof. 8 hours in the office bashing a keyboard under fluorescent lights. Few minutes to guzzle down some processed waste with zero...

    Public Accounts Committee enquiry into ELMS

    Is that before or after we reach a consensus on how to strap bales to a trailer or the best way to compact a silage clamp?

    Public Accounts Committee enquiry into ELMS

    It's not April 1st is it? Highly irregular for an official document, almost looks to have been written by people with an ounce of common sense.

    The first domino?

    A fair chunk of government debt is index linked to inflation and yields rise with CPI/RPI so it's not as simple as inflating all our debt away. We have boxed ourselves into a corner with amount the country has borrowed on the back of a weak economy. All there is left to do is continue to print...

    The first domino?

    The government has created a monster with house prices. Can't do anything now but keep feeding it.

    Come on now, this is how JD sales are meant to go: "Is it green? Does it have yellow wheels? Sold!"

    Rodent control

    🐭 :unsure: "Be sure to check the live traps hourly! The little animals will be hungry, thirsty, and frightened, and they may die if left in the traps too long. Release rats within 100 yards of where they were caught. Releasing a...

    What can the world learn from the livestock sector?

    Liberals making a lot of noise about it being ethically imperative to keep jabbing everyone in this country 20 times a year for the rest of our lives to protect the vulnerable and minorities. But the same people conveniently ignore the ethical dilemma this creates by denying vaccines to poorer...

    Hedge Trimming

    For maximum neatness do a run over the top from both sides of the hedge, it helps balance out imperfections and cutting both directions leaves it really crisp

    This time next month, virus.

    The real cost of all this will be borne by the young. Without wealthy parents they will never own a house. They will spend their entire lives working to pay for retired people's pensions and health care but will never be able to retire themselves.

    Dealing with depression - suicidal thoughts - Join the conversation (including helpline details)

    I would also stay away, in hindsight. It's an opiate and they're all the same. Enjoying the feeling or looking forwards to it should set alarm bells ringing. The feeling is such that it's easy to rationalise use 'for the pain.' It starts off irregularly as required, then weekly then daily and by...

    Would you buy an electric vehicle POLL

    The manufacturers will start building servicing costs into electric vehicles I guarantee it. If the pads and discs are lasting too long they'll make them thinner. The ones that are being built right now could well be the best built electric cars we ever see, it's only a matter of time before the...

    Land prices

    Prices definitely seem up a bit, been a long time since there has been so much optimism about the job. Costs are up but in general high prices are more than offsetting them, combined with talk about global food shortages there is a feeling things could finally be about to change for the better...

    Combinables Price Tracker

    I think the potential for shortages is about to hit mainstream media and from then on it's 'to the moon' as day traders get involved in the speculation and more countries start stocking up. Strap in folks good luck to all!
