    The on-going up hill battle that is agriculture.....

    It would appear iam not alone in having difficultly getting and keeping decent staff? Is it a nation wide issue or more regional? Wheres the best place to find the unicorns that maybe out there?

    Kvernland exacta cl fertiliser spreader

    Has anyone else had problems with the clip shearing on the shaft between the main gearbox and disc?. Had it happen to me 3 times now, so put an 8.8 bolt in lieu of the clip and it still shears. Can't find any play in the gearboxes. Can spread a load or 2 before it shears and sometimes just a few...

    Amazone fert spreaders

    I’m looking at an Amazone ZA-TS Ultra Profis Hydro spreader, but I have absolutely no experience with Amazone spreaders. It will be replacing an aged Kuhn Axis 30.1 which I’ve been really pleased with. It will be used through a Trimble GFX750 controller. So, basically, are they accurate? How...

    Kuhn Axera EMC

    Hello. I am slowly looking to replace my current mechanical Kuhn MDS 935 spreader to electronically controlled Kuhn Axera EMC. Prices for them are really low. Is there a common problem as they are so cheap? Can't seem to find any bad reviews of them. Has anybody priced how much a replacement EMC...

    Feeding a Beef Ration In The Field

    Aye up, I have a customer who feeds a few thousand cattle to slaughter every year. They’re all in all winter obviously, and he has enough grassland to get many out over February to October, but still has several hundred inside. He’s considering turning out more than the grass can support and...

    Kuhn AGT

    I am looking at moving from 24m to 36m tramlines, I am currently running a kongskilde wing jet and going back to a spinning disk really feels like a step in the wrong direction so it looks like a Kuhn AGT (Despite the price tag). Liquid fertiliser is not an option as out main activity is...

    Tru-Test vs Gallagher (recording sheep)

    I know eid has been talked about in previous posts but I’m ‘weighing up’ which brand to go with. I would like to, going forward, record my sheep flock and make better breeding decisions. I’ve tried to find direct comparisons or differences but not had much luck. All the commercial sheep...

    Are fert spinners that bad?

    Never owned or even used a fert spinner before. We have been using a mix of a boomed 24m machine and liquid fert through a sprayer for the last 10 years. Recently we have come back to the boomed machine for a variety of reasons one of which was application interval between liquid n and...

    Farm weighbridge

    I want to put a weighbridge in, it will be used for weighing crops as they come in on tractor and trailer, and also HGV's. I am looking at pit mounted as we are doing some yard alterations, so putting a pit in at the same time wouldn't be much extra work, or is surface mounted better. Also...

    What does Red Tractor cost you in cash terms?

    As per the title really. This started elsewhere, so @Chris F thought this was a thread in itself, so here we go. Based on the statement from Jim Moseley in the NFU meeting on Red Tractor that the average fee per farm is £50, what are the direct costs to you as farmers? RT levies CMI/SAI etc...

    Granular and liquid fertiliser in same field.

    I'm always hearing on here how one of the biggest advantages of liquid fertiliser is increased yields from headlands. We have a lot of ten acre fields so I'm thinking of spraying all headlands with liquid and filling in middles with granular. Does anyone else do this? If you do how do you...
