    baler up grade.

    Looking to up grade our baler, currently running a Greenland’s rf120. Just looking for something newer any recommendations? Won’t be used for anything to heavy and not to fussy about a chopper unit on it. Will be used on grass and straw. Got about £4K to spend.

    Throttle has to be wide open like the others have said. If not take off the pump and send it away for service and repair.

    Stolen cows?

    This happened not to far from us. The farm isn’t on main road access either and you’d have to go through a town within a mile. Be keen to load up and shift that many cattle in one hit and nothing be noticed

    Calf crush

    We haven’t tried paste, but I’d personally rather de bud as them I know it’s done. We also castrate at the same time with a burdizzo so the crush helps minimise movement.

    Calf crush

    Looking to invest in a calf crush want to try and avoid buying brand new but will if needs be. Just need nice and simple. We currently run this death trap as you can see the bar to restrain the calf’s head is a jaw breaker and bloody dangerous.

    Battery grease gun

    Another vote for sealey. Had mine 3/4 years and even survived being ran over surprisingly. I bought it thinking it would only last a year but still works absolutely fine. And it was only about £100

    What cordless impact guns are people using.

    Been thinking for a while about buying myself a cordless impact gun. Problem is there’s so many on the market it’s hard to know which one to buy. So what have people on here bought and how have they found them?

    Calve with turned in front feet

    We had it last year on 2 calf’s one came right and one never did and ended up shot. That was with splinting the leg and manipulating and stretching the leg every day. Is there any reason as to why they have it? is it something to Development in the wome as it’s the same cow year after year.
