    Bobcat Telehandlers

    38-70 is £5k cheaper than the Kramer 35-7 and it comes with a 5 yr warranty compared to 2yr and 5 yr 0% finance which is appealing. I had a demo of both and liked both machines. Kramer has a couple of extra gadgets such as automatic boom in function which was handy.

    Hen manure

    I would go for a 16t trailer, it will give you the option of getting 16,000 birds worth in 1 go or 1 trailer per shed per week. We run it into a 15t muck spreader once a week.

    Non domestic RHI application

    Had a straw burner installed and I am keen for the installer to get the rhi application in. The electrician is coming this week to finish the install off. As I have not had the system up and running I am not keen on paying the full balance until I have had it up and running for a bit. The...

    Treating the range area outside sheds

    I have moved onto an off the shelf erysipelas vaccine as the autogenous broke down at 50 weeks even though it was the same strain. Fingers crossed it will be better.

    Nitrification inhibitor

    Just wondering if anyone had used a nitrification inhibitor in their liquid fertiliser. Omex literature says it will allow you to apply all the liquid fertiliser in one dose.

    Treating the range area outside sheds

    I was wondering what people do to the range outside free range sheds. We had an outbreak of erysipelas in the last flock and have found blackhead in a different shed this flock, both of which supposedly come from the soil.

    Insulation under a concrete slab

    The problem with a vented air drying floor is that the air vents would get blocked with the muck. Also as the muck is a lot denser and doesn't have airspaces in like grain or chip it would be hard to force air through it. All other muck driers I have seen pass air over the top of the muck. I...

    Insulation under a concrete slab

    Going to be using it as a muck drying floor. Reversing a muck spreader on to spread a layer of muck on the floor and then a telehandler to scrape up the "hopefully" dried muck!

    Insulation under a concrete slab

    From the data sheets that seems the same as kingspan Styrozone. I would prefer not use any insulation but have been told the performance of the heated floor will be severely compromised. I had look into the foil stuff but that that is about 50mm thick and I presume requires air layers for it to...
