Like wise, nothing serious in my post.
Planted 23rd April
Grazing grass sample taken yesterday.
I never understand the comment "if cutting seek advice from advisor " that sample is rocket fuel, no advice needed, nor is additive needed if its sunny. So what have we all to gain from this cutting advice?
An opportunity to buy something!
Over the years I`ve noticed if the cows are milking well at cutting time then they will milk well on the silage
Not to be out done by someone from Somerset, today saw the long overdue start to project concrete.
Is that the 200 Metres you’ve been on about doing for the last 3 yrs ?
Yep, except it's only 120m. Don't want to rush things...
Concrete tracks are great..no upkeep or repairs etc.but if stones get on to them from an adjoining stone chip track or a muddy gateway,there's no "give" in the concrete. That wee stone is straight up into cows foot when trod on. Need to buy a brush!
Completely agree. This 120m joins the yard to 1000+m of sleepers so I'm hoping that by concreting it we cut the number of stones on the yard and sleepers.
Totally totally agree. We will be purchasing one soon. I know every season is different so I’m being cautious but so far it’s a joy watching the cows walking In. no new lame cows with white line this season so far And the speed between paddock And parlour has improved dramatically.
Luckily we are on a clay based soil so we will be putting in concrete ramps into the Paddocks so in theory we will be nearly Stone less
Did around 300m with Concrete, a lot of money, still well spent. Have a cow with, i presume is a broken back after a night bulling. Outdoors might I add.
Autumn born heifers liking the green stuff and sunshine
Telgin, was that the name of the bull you used a couple years ago @Ducati899 ????

Yes you could be right, @More to life is an expert in this maybe he could put us right?
