    Agri Shows - are we seeing the end??

    I've attended two excellent dealer events over the last couple of days, both incredibly well supported by manufactures, with strong customer attendance and very positive feedback at both events.

    Spring OSR

    How do people get on growing Spring OSR? Has anyone had any recent experience with it? Following end of August combined S.Barley and felt it was too late to drill WOSR, kicking myself because as it turned out we probably would have been fine with the open Autumn we have just had. Heavyish land...

    I feel a bit cheeky asking this as you lot probably get ask all the time but here goes. A friend of mine who loves his deer stalking has asked me if I know of any ground he can go on.

    There is no such thing as the wild in the UK?

    So much talk about re-wilding in the news. I've never liked the concept as its seems to be a dream in someone's head about what nature does when left to itself. But the wild - as in lets say 1,000 or 10,000 years ago, just does not exist any more in my opinion. There are 70 million people in...
