    With the cost off electric rising has anyone considered running the farm on a diesel generator? We have 2 robots in and our electric bill is through the roof. Was considered buying a engine generator and running it during the day even and using economy 7 at night. Thoughts?

    When would be the latest time clover could be stitched into a silage sward? We have just sprayed silage land to kill docs and we are are waiting to get a 5th cut off it the next dry spell so would it be to late to go in after that and stitch in?

    Feed fence ideas please

    There is a small paddock higher than the lane that has the septic tank etc for the dwelling house. I really don't want to start to move it. Yea it's just an extra feed area and loafing area.

    Feed fence ideas please

    I was thinking I could step the feed barrier back in 2 feet, let the silage out along the lane and push it in under the tin with a wheel pusher. Anyone doing that?
