    Moles

    Why is it some moles fill traps with soil? My heart sinks when I pull up a trap with soil because if they fill one they seem to fill them all and they are devils to catch. What am I doing wrong? Talpex traps

    Major NFU Revamp??... or... Start Another 'Union' from Scratch?? Time to stand up and be counted.

    The forum is full of threads that are unhappy with the way the NFU is run, it's handling of Red Tractor, it's ambivalence towards it's members. Everybody has a view of what they think should be done but who (if anyone) is actually going to do something? There appears to be two...

    Bailey drop bed low loader

    Quite keen on one of these, but ould welcome any user experiences. One particular question is can you drop it off and pick it up without dropping the bed, i.e. if using it behind a loader which only has one service for the pickup hitch & trailer, and involves swapping pipes etc. Many thanks
