    What’s the funniest thing that’s happened to you at work?

    Mine was falling down a manhole that some twit left the cover off a jar! It was a very blustery day and the wind had blown a load of leaves over the cover, so I never see what was coming! 😂 Next thing I knew I was crumpled at the bottom of a 6ft hole, with my shins bleeding from bouncing off...

    Sprung drawbar on grain trailer?

    I’m just looking at buying a fairly low spec grain trailer to use as a reserve grain trailer and also for a bit of muck cart occasionally in the winter. Probably about 12-14t with floatations and hydraulic back door but is there much benefit in having a sprung drawbar these days? I know they...

    Bad news! Christmas isn’t cancelled after all.

    I thought the Scrooges of the world could rejoice in one good thing coming out of 2020. It appears not, and it’s still bloody November! Baa Humbug.

    Mobile pig enclosure

    So I have a crazy idea, to get maybe 3 weaners for the freezer and finish them in a mobile enclosure that I can move around to keep the pigs entertained and to get them to eat weeds that need eating, while not causing too much damage. Firstly is a mobile pig enclosure a viable prospect? Also...

    Rat bait

    What rat bait are people having success with? Currently feeding both of Mole Valley's own brand wheat based poisons to my rat population and they seem to still be very much alive! I'm worried about using bait blocks as we have two spaniels and the neighbours Jackrussell loose about the yard.
