    DEFRA PPP form

    Just realised that I hadn't filled this in and sent it. The big question: what on earth do you put for the litres used? of course you can get a figure from you supplier but what a meaningless sum. Glyphosate going on at say, 4l/ha and SU going on at 20g/ha.

    What makes you efficient?

    Every dairy farm is different, we all manage differently. With the current economic climate I’ve just been wondering what others are all doing to get even more efficient? Rightly or wrongly we’ve decided to go from 3 times a day milking down to twice daily. Looking forward to the simpler...

    CF Ince plant to close

    The news that CF are going to shut their Ince AN plant should be treated with the immediate seriousness it deserves from both the UK agriculture industry and the wider industries that will be severely affected if this happens. Time for Government to step in and ensure the plant is kept going...

    Red Tractor non conformance

    I don’t usually have too many problems with my audit but I do put in a huge amount of work in advance. Am I wasting my time? What is the consequence of lots of lots of non-critical failures? Sorry Mr Inspector I don’t have any grain temperature and moisture records this year but it all sold...

    Guy Smiths steps down from Red Tractor

    Jumping ship because he doesn’t want to be involved with the PPI of agriculture or just had enough of politics and wants to go back to farming?

    Buying group recommendations?

    Not having very good service from the outfit who we currently use, despite lots of promises they tend to deliver late or not at all and it's not worth the levy. Any recommendations? Covering the SW. Thanks

    Grassland product survey

    I think most TFF users more than understand the levels of financial pressure we are likely to experience next season. Inputs prices are rising seemingly daily and the margins some suppliers have come to expect are no longer sustainable. Farmdeals is trying to help. Grassland Product Survey -...

    Did an interview on BBC Breakfast this morning pushing for egg price rises.

    I don't suppose the retailers will listen, but fair play to the BBC they put the case very neatly. The British Retail Consortium don't seem to have a problem passing on fuel cost rises, it's just the food producers that have to bear the costs. @Suffolk Serf @Pan mixer maybe the pig and poultry...

    AF and Haven power

    Just a heads up to anyone sourcing electricity from Haven through AF My billing has had an enormous cock up, which I failed to notice and resulted in a large bill quite a way down the line, which I did! It seems Haven are trying to go back several years but I believe the cock up was last summer...

    Begging bowls again…

    Reading a thread about high fert prices and some farmers are asking for the government to step in and subsidies the price. Then another thread suggesting the government should help subsidies fuel prices. Farmers must get more government hand outs then a black single mother in a council flat with...
