    Never had it so good!

    Plenty of snow in the 80s, particularly 81/82 but most winters in the 80s had a fair dollop of snow. December 1990 is the most disruptive I can remember. The weight of snow snapped poles off & no electric for a week. Milking with a PTO shaft on the vacuum pump was ok but we couldn't cool the...

    Biomass Suppliers List and Woodsure

    Yes registered for both Use both own straw and bought in, have to provide them with field OS nos and areas it was grown on, how far it has travelled & approx how much diesel used baling & loading it. SFR will do it for you for a fee, so I let them do it, I'd rather be safe than sorry. Dragon D20

    Biomass Suppliers List and Woodsure

    We also burn straw as well as logs. For straw you need to be on the Sustainable Fuel Register, again it's something you have to pay for and a bit more paperwork, but it ticks the RHI boxes.

    That's what I was thinking, I didn't think Lucerne was suitable for heavy ground?

    Son's Dissertation Survey

    Yes, with respect, my specific question is why isn't he on here doing this himself instead of you asking the question for him. Chuck them in at the deep end if you want them to learn.

    A bit of begging but not for me

    Is that an example of an oxymoron ? 😂

    Great article in The Times

    The clueless tossers just think we can export the problem and import the food. Short memories & no brains.

    Save Our Farms

    Apologies for stating the obvious. We are in a crazy situation where in my opinion, a campaign needs promoting to save/support farming in England. Re-Wilding is throwing money at those that need it least. Look at what's happened to @CopperBeech, a very good farmer who has been stitched up...

    Great article in The Times

    @CopperBeech I am very sorry to learn of your situation. Have you thought about contacting Countryfile? I know it's a crap programme but this week I've had an email from a group I am in, asking about the effect of ELMS etc & how to contact them with regard to the changes. It's obviously...

    Perhaps your last sentence sums it up ? Incidentally, why did you emigrate & what do you do in NZ?

    David Handleys piece today

    Would the National Parks be so appealing to the general public if re-wilding took place? The scenery would certainly be different and I'm sure that's one of the reasons tourists go there. Hill farmers may be dependent on subsidy but they are creating a landscape as well as producing food. Surely...

    New information about local nature recovery and landscape recovery

    I thought SFI was for 3 years ? What if your landlord will only give you a one year rolling agreement ?

    Can farmers relax or is it just me?

    Apart from routine milking feeding etc, we also lamb 100 ewes at Christmas. There's nothing like lambs running around to stop the Winter blues! They started on the 12th, about 30 lambed up to 20th, then they stopped until today when 14 lambed. (It's frustratingly slow compared with our 600 at...

    Did you enjoy your Red Tractor Christmas dinner?

    I wonder if dim Jim or madam President has watched a Christmas Carol. Christmas Past, Present & (no) Future for Red Tractor

    Concerned about Red Tractor collapse.

    I can't understand why Madam President keeps banging on about this? She appears to be obsessed with Farm Assurance. The majority of us know it's at least 75% bull poo.

    Elms & the Livestock Farmer

    I agree but they have maintained a constant supply of cheap food to the nation. It could be interesting this time next year with a likely reduction in fertiliser use all over the world
