Don't let this turn into a thread about various pick ups. I've got 3 different makes so know a bit. Need to get a second hand pick up for someone and seen an L200 with Truckman Top and tow bar fitted, so these 2 extras will save me nearly £2k over any truck that doesn't have them. It's a 2017...
Have got a tractor in a awkward field with a flat front tyre.
Can lift front of tractor on front linkage so 2 options, either remove tyre or chock axle stops and drive to easier to get at place.
Is the latter possible?

Last year, we reseeded a field of permanent pasture with a clover and Italian mix. This year it was full of thistle and sprayed it off 2 weeks ago with glyphosate. Should I sow a clover mix long term or 4 year ley without clover just in case more thistles reappear ?
I’m not sure if I’m alone in this but I hate shopping for machinery. I enjoy the looking and everything about it except trying to get prices. It’s always a game of who you are and how you get on with the dealer etc. If you ever find a list price it’s nothing like what anyone pays and prices are...
I am thinking a Farming Protest should be organised at a farm based on the new Agriculture bill and the fact that Jamie Oliver and NFU have done a great job getting nearly a million signatures for food standards.
We could also have beer, a band and a ploughing match. Just an idea ;)
Our farm truck, a Toyota hilux, insurance is up for renewal.
There are 6 of us on the farm that drive it, if contractors working here they get it home if not finished to save them running about on road with tractor.
Currently insured with nfu. Any recommendations of alternatives?
Am I the only one struggling for grass at the moment? Even reseeded ground from last year doesn't seem to be growing like it should. Ph is 6 to 6.5 ,index of P And K is 2. Put fertiliser out and just seems very slow.
What are your thoughts on a maternal tup to put over mainly 3/4 texels for breeding replacement ewes?
We are just finishing lambing and I’ve had to intervene with to many, what breeds are going to inject some maternal traits back into the flock. Thanks.
Anybody in Yorkshire know about these guys?
Watching the viners on Inside the Factory. Talk of them growing 77 square miles of peas! At 50,000ac that sounded humongous!
Looking at their website they mention:
“Hartley’s have been growing peas around Knottingley and Tadcaster since 1954 and for...

That things are changing?
Ive been looking at telehandlers and found one in as new condition with low hours but 14 months old. I enquired with the dealer and the price was £72,500 which is about £12,000 less than a new price today so a reasonable discount I thought. In the meantime a fellow tff...
Bit of an odd one. I am in my kitchen and hear the Land Rover alarm go off. It's about 3pm, I'm in lockdown, and haven't seen anyone for days. No livestock or people close to the vehicle and nothing I am aware of that could have set it off. A bit strange? I assume I have set off the key fob...
