    Grain pads - alternatives to concrete?

    With all of our grain going to CS and sheds being used for other purposes, does anyone have any good ideas for a tipping/loading site surface for grain. Concrete is obviously the ideal, but very expensive and this is really only needed for a few weeks of the year. I have seen stabilised concrete...

    Will Putin invade ?

    As the wheat prices seem almost completely dependant upon news about this right now which way does the crowd wisdom of TFF think things will go in the Ukraine ?

    Drainage advice needed please

    We're finishing building our grain store here and now concentrating on the yard and drainage. The area between the stone bunker and the new building gets a lot of water running off which goes down the yard and gets everything wet. I need a solution to remove the water. Our pressure washer is...

    Glue traps for rats and mice illegal shortly

    New legislation will soon make them illegal. We have used them in grain sores to keep mice in check, we obviously can’t use poisoned bait in that situation, what is the situation with using baited traps? Would the bait be a problem? Is a trap where they drop into water legal?

    Getting silly now

    Customer yesterday had a fail on his ACCS because his scrap heap was to untidy and has 28 days to sort it out or be suspended. It’s nowhere near the grain store 🤷🏻‍♂️ It’s getting silly now 🙄

    Grain store height for tipping trucks in.

    Planning a new 80 foot span grain store which is 24 feet to the eaves. Is it going to be high enough to tip artics in? If I go up to 30 feet to the eaves steel work cost goes up considerably.

    Grabbing a rat by its tail

    Nothing to do with poltics or unfaithful partners. I found a trio of dead rats in the barn, half grown & then loading some small bales, I saw another one same size but very much alive. It dived between two bales but its tail was visible, should I have grabbed it.
