    Is Red Tractor actually legal?

    As a cereal farmer we all have to produce crops within the rules set out by government such as crop sprayer MOT, NROSO, Safe storage of grain, fuel storage, fertiliser storage etc etc. We’ve had EA, Natural England, Defra and Trading Stadards inspections over the last 5 years. We then have to...

    Concerned about Red Tractor collapse.

    With the cut in funding from AHDB and the pending creation of a new competing scheme, surely RT's days are numbered? What will that mean for those of us who are signed up for assurance if RT goes under? Will we still be able to market our produce or will the alternative schemes take us on if...

    Robert Sheasby, CEO at AIC - what world does he live in?

    I have just seen this quote from Mr Sheasby: This is from the same AIC that have refused to meet with farmers about the testing issues around grain. Thus I guess when he says "buy-in of all decision makers to a farming business" he means everyone in the industry except for farmers. But that...

    Zero Cooperation with SFI until Autumn Spreading Ban Lifted.

    That’s my view of it. Sell yourselves for £10 per acre if you like but until they come to their senses over autumn manure, they’ll get no cooperation on voluntary matters from me.

    Who's joining me?

    Just had the red tractor inspection, I sadly haven't passed so won't be able to sell stock at the premium. I failed on health plan, health and safety plan, haven't got a needle certificate and when the dog was wormed. The whole thing has become an utter joke. BVD testing is recommended now, so...

    The Russians are coming

    A repeat of a recent Andre Rieu concert in Maasterick, Holland, was shown on Sky Arts last night. It was held and first broadcast well before the possibility that Russian forces might soon appear near the Polish Border. The huge audience consisted of about 80 Nationalities. At the beginning...

    Unaccountable organisations.....

    So....we've had: The Environment Agency and their 100ft drain issue Red Tractor and their double standards of UK grain vs imported Natural England and @ajcc NFU and their denial of ownership of Red Tractor These are just a few examples of bodies failing in their own remit but hypocritically...

    What would it take.

    What would it take for you to give up farming ? Serious question this one. With the way we farmers are being treated and in some quarters vilified what would it take for you to give it up. ?

    AHDB TO LAUNCH OWN SELF CERTIFICATION SCHEME Well this should be the easy plan, and may save @AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds if they act quickly. Is this the way forward to put the power back in our hands where it belongs? Bullet Points: AHDB Subsidiary Company as per Schedule1, using some of our...
