    You won’t believe this

    My mate runs a beef and sheep farm. One of his neighbours has glamping pods which border my friends farm. Yesterday morning he gets a very irate couple in his yard going mad that his cows have been having s*x in front of their children. Apparently they’d gone mad at the glamping pod site owner...

    Correct Spraying Rate on a small sprayer

    Hi, this might be an odd question because I'm an engineer, not a farmer... How do people make sure they are spraying at the correct application rate on small sprayers (<500l like this one: https://www.silvannz.co.nz/silvan-sprayers/eco-500l-linkage-sprayer/)? From what I've seen they just have...

    McHale or Kuhn Fixed or Variable?

    Which baler to replace a variable chamber Krone? McHale roller makes best shaped bales of grass, Kuhn belt best for swallowing dry stuff (and presumably straw), but bales of second cut sag before wrapping (or I didn't set the density correct on the demo).

    Lack of Small Abattoirs

    The RBST and the Sustainabile Food Trust have been banging on about this issue for a bit. But it seems both the latest food report and George Eustice are missing the point re the important role of small abattoirs to farmers who sell direct or to local butchers.
