    First cut done, slight delay getting the tyres on due to bee swarm above the tyre storage department! Local bee keeper came and boxed them up for a new home somewhere.

  4. Yes. I had a play with a few estrotects last year and really liked them so I've gone 100% that way this year.

    I thought I'd be the last person in the country to move away from tail paint but I can't see myself ever going back to painting now.

    A good gale of wind would shift a few sheets I would think.

    Will they work on housed heifers do you think or will they be to inquisitive with them?

    Had them on housed heifers this last winter. Great job, far better than tail paint. No questioning of whether it's a positive heat or just a bit of carry on

    I used estotects and tail paint last year and I was pretty taken with them. I did get the odd one that ate theirs and a few that didn't seem to rub off, but I will be using them again (y)

  20. Yes, I have friends who do this.

    It's really important to get them good and hot before applying them otherwise they will fall off
