Need to ‘lift’ a few field post harvest, looking at my current options in the machinery paddock I have a Sumo Trio, Carrier and a Heva 5 leg subsoiler. My guess is Heva would be best, but worried about the amount of disturbance. Would changing the legs and point help reduce? I’m thinking...
I have about 15 hens in my care which I love dearly.
I'm looking to improve their nutrient intake because they've started dying recently with no symptoms and I believe they have some deficiency problems.
Would like to get my hands on some good quality cereals and seeds for them, preferably...
I wholecrop a lot of spring cereals for our beef herd. Mostly oats to form the base of a tmr. I'm looking at the yield from hybrid rye and thinking it maybe a good option. Has anyone done it, what is the feed value if cut late? Is it palatable enough for them? Thanks in advance.
I am thinking of getting 4 acres of old grass land Direct drilled with turnips after second cut silage.
Winters are wet here and land wouldn’t be the lightest but this would be one of my driest fields in winter. Never grazed a forage crop over winter here before.
I am wondering would I get...

Anyone grazing sheep on annual summer cover crops? Thinking a mix with say rye, ryegrass, 2 or 3 annual clovers, phacelia, vetch and a brassica with regrowth could be a good mix. Stock it at over 5 ewes and lambs to acre rotational grazed. Could be a good alternative arable 'crop' with benefits...

Aside from kale and maybe some fodder radishes are there any other options? Had mixed success in the past as if the kale fails you need to re establish every year or risk a fine? I guess wheat sown now won't vernalise so will provide some cover/seed in the second year. Any other bright ideas for...

About a month, ish, ago i sowed 80kg an acre of spring wheat, and put another 100kg of 20-10-10 down the drill spout.
Now, I’m a total novice to growing wheat, but the question is, should I give it a bit more fertiliser? If so, what, and when?
I can feel the eyes rolling in your...
