    AHDB can feck right off.

    We Eat Balanced 2022 starts today, so thought I would be a good little levy payer and share the social media. Well, that's not happening. WTF is it with this industry ? Why are we so utterly incapable of promoting ourselves - all of us - rather than this constant 'some farms are better than...

    Fendt 924/926 wanted

    Hi all, I have a contact (not me) looking for a Fendt 924 or 926, square bonnet type. Very good condition preferably but something in need of a little work would be considered, these are not young tractors. U.K. or continental Europe is fine.

    More money isn't always the answer -- why did you LEAVE?

    I thought it might be quite revealing to learn why employees leave rather than how the boss can keep them! I know why I left my first real job.
