    Foot rot - footvax

    We're getting more and more foot rot here. Pretty strict at culling any bad feet before tupping but it just keeps on appearing in others. Tups are the worst. I buy hill Cheviots at Dingwall and try to stay clear of anything that looks like it has feet problems but a year later and their feet...

    Cows or no cows

    I run 105 suckler cows and 1500 ewes. Not pushed to the limit of what the farm will carry by any means. I grow a bit of barley to fatten young stock and neeps for sheep. I do everything in house.

    360 Excavator auxiliary hydraulic service

    I have a 2007 Case 13 tonner which I would like to run a screening bucket with. Currently my machine has no hammer line or auxiliary lines.
