@Thelastshepherd If you still have no rain it is probably time think about marking hard for cull all undesirable traits and reduce stock. You have to survive a summer then a winter.So I moved from west Scotland to just north of Aberdeen, we have had only a handful of properly wet days since I moved nearly a year ago. After grass burnt off last year new seed and existing grass is not germinating (except in a drain where there is some moisture). Getting very scared of another dry year
I recon 450mm would be perfect annual rainfall hereOh! are we wet now. The ground I am on is incredibly sticky when wet, but my amount so far for the year is nothing like most of you all get, its just the type of soil, hangs on to moisture at this time of year. Managed to get 60% drilled last 2 days of October and dont think we will be back on the glue again till March.
Total rain for October was 79mm making a total for 2019 of just 373mm so far.
