    Is it possible to buy a wifi camera that can be temporarily put on the back of a trailer to aid reversing? I find trying to see where the livestock trailer is going when it is turning away from the driver's side, pretty impossible Thanks

    Domestic Battery Storage

    We have a biomass boiler for heating and hot water which has a 2,500 litre buffer tank - a sort of thermal store. The panels cannot heat this tank. I realise a battery system will be ineffective in the winter, but in the summer the solar panels produce plenty of hot water and most of the power...

    "Improving Our Lot" - Planned Holistic Grazing, for starters..

    Yeah, I'm coming to that conclusion too. If the grass is getting too long, shut it up for hay, or pre-empt that by rotating the sheep faster. I like the idea of 'som farmer' using an aerator to push stems into the ground after grazing, though I would prefer to leave the tractor parked in the...

    "Improving Our Lot" - Planned Holistic Grazing, for starters..

    I had plenty of grass this year, (Hay height) and I set up tight electric fences for my ewes and lambs so that they ate a third, trampled a third and left a third. I moved them once a day. It worked really well for the grass - the regrowth of the herbal leys was fantastic. Unfortunately it...

    what grinds your gears

I want to support British or European engineering, not Chinese, so I spend some time searching for a British one.

    Assuming ewes weigh 75 kg. each. 200,000 kg = 2667 ewes per ha./10,000 sq. metres. This gives each ewe 3.75 square metres each. Not a lot of space. If my calculations are correct, how long do you leave them there?
