    Shed Rental

    Morning Ladies and Gents, I’m looking at ways to plug the cash flow deficit that will be left by BPS over the next 7 years. We have been approached by a few companies to store boats all year around given our proximity to the coast. Now, for the sake of argument let’s remove the issues of...

    The Red Tractor ACCS referendum

    The Red Tractor logo or brand does not appear on products that UK cereal growers supply the ingredients for so unquestionably has no value to end consumers of bakery and other cereal products The processors of these products including the likes of Hovis and Warburtons have stated that they have...

    Moving sheep on a road signage

    I’ve seen signs for supervised cattle crossings up north before, when lights show signs with the little beacons. Was thinking of making my own for moving the sheep. I’ve got about 200 yds to move them along a road. Easy job right? Apart from the fact it’s between 2 sets of double bends. I need...

    Contractor productivity grants

    I see that as a contractor I could apply for this grant for machinery this year. When does this come in s I can't find much information on this. I've got my eye on a piece of machinery that could fit the criteria for this. Be really handy getting 40% off the price of the machine.

    NHS.....Its only as bad as a normal winter

    John Burn-Murdoch (@jburnmurdoch) Tweeted: NEW: a common response to reports of hospitals struggling this winter is "it’s no different to a bad flu season!" I’ve tracked down historical data on flu ICU admissions, including winter 2017-18, a record high. Here’s how England’s Covid winter...

    Woodland rental wanted

    Hi, I’m very keen to rent some woodland in Derbyshire or Staffordshire. I have a very busy life and really want to spend my spare time wisely. I can’t think of anything better. I’m a lover of the British countryside and I want my own private getaway to watch the seasons change. It would be...

    Best value?

    For a 20 year life would it be better buying a brand new trailer at £20,000 from a premium brand or buying a well used one at £10,000. Assume the same spec but £10,000 ones generally need new tyres which adds £2,000. New one would be financed. Used one would be bought out of the business...

    Slurry jib

    Hmmm, encountered this heading to Newcastle Emlyn this morning, when you know the road it’s a bit disconcerting to come around a corner and meet this when your 16 foot high, you hope they have a tape.

    Amazon AD3000 drill rat damage

    Morning All, what with the weather and the Christmas break the drill was left in the shed with wheat seed in it. Since then rodents have been having a field day they’ve eaten through wires, chewed some plastic bits and been pulling the wheat out from the meter wheels (after gnawing them flat...

    How well does the spun on wheat look? Are fert spreaders accurate enough?

    Hi there considering this as a back up plan , we have a Vaddy 8m and Kv tine drill , which has got us drilled up the last two years pretty much . But I feel the drop in output from 8 to 6 plus unblocking Coulter’s etc means the amount we can do in a day is much less at a time when the weather...

    The Track and Trace farrago

    Isn't it about time this useless and pointless scheme managed by incompetent but skilful money grabbers had it's plug pulled. It has consumed £22 billon in six months of operation and has a further unconfirmed £16 billon for this current year. I now notice they have started to bodge the...
