    No, apparently no one purchases land and expects a return on it from rent, so you've done the right thing, the idiot is surely the woman who bought the 1000 acres and is rewilding it, I mean who on earth earth would buy something and then go for maximum return on their investment.

    Thank you, was beginning to feel like the village idiot, they've all objected to paying a decent rent, but no one's come forward and said they would be happy to purchase land and rent it out at what they offer.

    Well you'd probably do 4 or 5 dry cows early on, so what's the difference between 8 ewe's and 14 lambs, and say 2 cow's and 70 litres of milk.

    It's not really that high a stocking rate though is it, if I remember right 6 ewe's are a livestock unit, which is also equivalent to one cow, most dairy farms run their cows at two or three to the acre early on, gradually dropping down to around a cow to the acre later in the season as...

    I think you're 15% figure isn't far out, but it depends on who's doing the stocking and the figures, I can't remember the figures from when I used to do similar to you, but I do remember good ground I set stocked at 8 ewes and lambs an acre, reducing depending on the quality of the ground, so...

    Your right the rental value is the rental value, but what ever the rent is, you'll have one quietly getting on with the job and doing well, whilst another is lay in bed squealing about how hard done to he is because his mother's weaned him.

    Sounds like in your ideal world you'd have a direct line to rt, then when rt say withdraw someone's right to sell milk, they then pick up the phone to you, right we've withdrawn their income, they now can't buy anymore feed, just be a good boy now and pop along, withdraw their licence and...

    You don't know what you're talking about, if rt have no legal weight, how come they can stop farms selling milk without going on the farm or giving a reason.
