    Not sold as much horse hay this winter as I had planned resulting in a bit of bale shifting now that the grass cutting season has got here. Not really up to @Hfd Cattle standards but I don't have as much luck as him, no one has given me any grass at all, having to mow my own where I...

    what grinds your gears

    Carefully storing the hayturner in the dry and finding that the birds have been using it as a toilet all winter.

    Selling grass off the field, by the bale, how much ?

    Yes, depends on your area I suppose and the availability of other grass about the place but that is what I would be prepared to pay a neighbour here this year, other years it would have been less but the cost of growing grass has gone up a tad this time.

    Good News in the pig trade

    Yes, that is always the way with boars, even in good times they don't often get above £50 for monsters, smelly meat is the problem I think. Trouble is, what do you do with them then? I sent 2 with that bunch of sows the other day, they came to nothing much but at least the transport cost was...

    Grazing wheat in winter , (golden hoof)

    Cull sows came to over £100 each, rather a lot better than the 20 or so that they got in December.

    Interesting article about wheat prices.

    The Government there had won power by pledging that they would go organic by 2028. They used to subsidise the fertiliser for their farmers but, with the cost of the pandemic, decided that they could cut down on borrowing by ending the fert subsidy and going organic earlier. Shot theirselves in...

    Skid steer vs articulated thoughts please

    Don't try and push the whole length out with the 35, we have 4 goes at ours with an MF 550, tyres on backwards helps a bit too. Sorry not trying to teach you to suck eggs.

    Skid steer vs articulated thoughts please

    I haven't got a skid but it would be really irritating to have to climb in and out of the cab over a mucky scraper, bucket or grab.

    Not Quite Farm Engineering or a Quick Bodge.

    I think that it was just right, no lathes, calipers or anything too precision.
