    Looks as though the posties are going to come out as well. Good job I say. Should make everyone realise how totally irrelevant a daily postal service is. I would get rid of 50 % of the posties and go for every 2nd or 3rd day delivery. Why do we need a daily service? BB

    Transporting scrap

    As per title, we are gathering a fair pile of scrap metal about and usually load up and take it to the scrapyard with tractor and trailer. Do I technically need to now run on white diesel even though the scrap is farm waste and its proceeds will be paid into the farm account? Tia

    Pumpkins

    Hi all, I've got the chance at a load of pumpkins for stock feed. They're fine by all accounts just sat out in the field waiting to decompose or be chopped up by the plough. Just wondered if they had much/any nutritional value for pregnant ewes? They're the right price at £0's and there's plenty...
