Been looking at accord style quick hitch.
What folks opinion of them on rear linkage.
I have quick hitches on my linkage but wanted something easier for my ladies to fit.
Mainly use back box , chain harrows then fert spreader and sprayer. Only fairly small kit as it only livery yard .
Would it work ? Never seen them used at the rear so didn't know if there was a reason.

That’s the best way to use them unless you’ve a hydraulic top front link!! But that would mean more plumbing!!

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
