    Silage trailer height

    Be careful about changing the use. In our catchment someone got a grant to roof over an outside concrete yard. They then put some gates across the front and bedded it up for some cattle. They were inspected and had to pay the grant money back and may have also been fined.

    Battery cages

    Could anyone confirm if this photo is the old style battery cage or an enriched one. The image was used in a presentation at my daughters school about Veganism to demonstrate factory farming. My 15 year old daughter told the teacher this photo would not be in the UK as it was illegal to keep...

    NFU Legal Assistance Scheme

    Friend of mine had over 50k from LAS. He had unwarranted environmental restrictions placed on him and it was a point of principal that would have had implications for other farmers. This is where LAS comes into its own with cases you could not afford to fully fund yourself.

    Th old ADAS did a trial on this about 20 years ago at the old Bridget's experimental Husbandry farm in Hampshire. They had to abandon it part way through as they really struggled to get cows in calf with such a long voluntary waiting period for 18 month calving.

    Tomlinson's dairy

    Certainly in the big supermarkets the price they pay for milk bares no correlation to what they sell it for on the shelf. The money tends to be in brands, e.g Cathederal City, Lurpak and Cravendale.

    Viewed a system in Cumbria on a dairy/sheep farm. They had a 70kw turbine and the intake was about 1000m up the hill. Water intake was through a big mesh like a cheese grater. Pipe down the hill was about 300-400mm diameter. Looked to be a good earner with payback in under 4 years . They had...
