    Lamb feeding tube

    Just bought a new one. Is it just me or is a rubber tube hard to push down the lambs throat. I got on well with the more plastic type ones.

    Horsch Taro 6m mounted disc drill

    I believe they have power disc coulters, are these any good for dd and moved ground light and heavy? Looks like a good set up, wonder how well it would work in the wet. They are a similar set up to a trailed one minus the front discs?

    Row cleaners

    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...

    State of your crops?

    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. I do have two small fields that are below par but most are looking well. How are others looking? Wheat and barley below, no rape this year but locally it looks well.
