Just wondering if anyone on here was of an equine bent?
I am currently the subject of a campaign by my two daughters to buy them a pony. The original idea was to get one on loan but suitable loans seem to be like hen's teeth at the moment. My impression of the current horse trade is that they...
I had a tractor demo a few weeks ago from a dealer with the intention of buying it if liked it. Had it for 4 days where on the 4th day I took it to get a load of straw bout 40 miles away from our farm . Tractor broke down on the farm where I was picking straw up. Electrical problem . Dealer had...
two loads of loose concrete railway sleepers from PE15 8QJ to just south of carlisle.
As the sleepers are loose and not stacked, it will requite a flatbed with strong side supports or at least 3 droppable sides
Our rented farm on the outside of the town has now become half a farm, and half a building estate... its a pain, there are a lot of people who think its OK to throw a dog toy across a field of wheat because theres no sign to say they cant! They have all been walking around the grass field out...
Hello everyone, the truth is that I have been somewhat worried for a few months. All my life I have lived in the north of Ireland, on my amazing farm, I love this life and I thought my family did too. I live here with my wife and my two small children, but 4 months ago I noticed my wife...

How necessary do you think it is to have row cleaners on a disc drill? How much of an issue is hair pinning on disc drills. I have no intention of selling straw to make a disc work so need to make sure I spec properly. I also wonder if hair pinning appears a bigger issue than it actually is...
Recently attended a zoom meeting with a respected independent land agent. He described the next 5 yrs as the biggest change in Farming in a lifetime. He painted a fairly bleak picture of agric under the Tory government’s funding plans, none of which encourage food production:

I’m after building some sheep yards on a lease block. Thinking wood be best for price. How do I make sure they don’t rot in a couple of years though?
was going to floor them in tarmac planings as well.
Given the late drilling date and the amount of rain that’s gone on them I’m pleasantly pleased with the state of my crops.
