    Ewes lambing late after Alamycin LA ?

    We had a lot of eye problems this year and jabbed three quarters of the flock with alamycin about 10 to 12 weeks before lambing but they've all lambed pretty much on time. We also used a hill ram on some ewes and they have lambed a few days earlier than the ewes served by other rams.

    What’s the rate for large scale solar?

    Who pays the business rates on a solar farm? An agent has asked me to sign an Exclusivity Agreement for a small project (20 megawatts or so). They are indicating rent of £700 per acre but there's no mention of who pays the business rates.

We've not bought anything in for a couple of years and t's only on a couple of old sheep that I had planned to take to market. They don't seem bothered by it and their body...

    But now they're only selling it in 20l containers which by my reckoning means I'd have to use 2 backpacks worth a day to use it all up before the end of the licence period.
