    Climate Emergency - The Next Decade

    This summer might be just a one in 50 year event ? Just gives the global warming people that weren't around in 1976, something to get upset about ! No one mentioned global warming last summer when he was raining every day. I am more worried that no one has increased our water supply capacity in...

    Why is it that any turnip seed grows on the stones outside my back door after I have dropped a few out of my boots, yet struggles in a dry seedbed in the field !?! Even the bloody flea beetle doesn't attack the ones by my house !

    Starting from Scratch - Advice Welcomed!

    Ag land is probably a good investment, but I think what you will gain on the land you will lose on the pigs !! If you can find the land, make sure there is an abattoir that kills pigs close at hand and a good butcher. Good luck. I think you might need it.

    Renting land ,wirh gentlemsns agreement

    I rent some land on a Gentlemans agreement. Every year the landlord says his accountant ask him to get a more informal agreement for inheritance tax reasons. Every year I say that's fine, but it never happens. The difference is that I will never abuse the trust of a handshake.

    Farm insurance

    Insurances are only good or bad when you make a claim. Sometimes paying more for NFU will probably pay off in the long run. I know this from my experience

    Really !! Maybe people will just realise that the breeds of Native bred cattle and sheep that thrive on grass will be the ones to have. I can never understand why you feed more KG's of concentrates to animals, than the amount of food you get back !?

    3 year old killed after ‘collision’ with a tractor

    Not that simple is it though. They then go on their bikes to the local town and get run over that way........ or start getting into trouble another way. With modern tractors, the safest place for farm kids is in the cab. Not very H and S, but it is true. I expect most of us older farmers on...

    Another kick in the teeth for red tractor

    RT have the same arrogance stance as the EU had about the UK. Both never listened to the whinges and concerns of their members until it was too late. Just hope that RT fail now, as they have produced nothing but sress, aggravation and cost to farmers for absolutely no reward. Unfortunately...
