Killed my Dad. Are you feeling lucky?

Actually, my wife has a semi friend that she hasn’t seen for a few weeks. She took her some eggs today and to say hello and the friend looked dreadful. My wife asked what was wrong with her and was told that the lady had had the vaccine in late March and has felt awful ever since😳

Seems to affect some people weeks after! 🤦‍♂️

One of my dads friends hands have all swollen up and has flu like symptoms. Doctors are blaming the vaccine.

3 weeks after getting vaccinated .

I had it in March and for a week felt pretty rough and as a rule I am rarely ill. As for Dad we were asked if he could be given the vaccine we said yes two days later he was dead now putting two and two together it makes you wonder. During the winter he'd had asymptomatic covid followed by pneumonia and survived both but the cure was evidently worse than the disease.

Mmm well , the vaccine will cause your body to produce an amount of viral protein.
Your immune system will react to the protein, you will feel ill, temp/aches/tiredness this is your immune system reacting.
Unfortunately the amount of protein produced varies a lot (more so in az vacc than others)
Too much protein can cause your blood to thicken and clot resulting in stroke/death in a tiny number of cases.
It may be that more protein is produced by certain groups, it's poorly understood, in this respect it is a large scale trial.
If i felt it appropriate for me to have, I would prob time for seasonal respiratory virus outbreaks and have in the autumn rather than spring.

I am having my jab on Monday and it's likely to be that vaccine, I know there are many threads on it, what are the actual risks from it ?
Here is the official information

others available on same website.

Then look at the leaflet for paracetamol or almost any other medicine.

Does seem a mix of information
Think is likely all the vaccines work pretty effectively.
Unclear how long for.
Some indications that antibody levels falling now amongst the earlier vaxxed.
I tested positive for antibodies in dec 9 months after having the virus
Maybe vaccine will last that long.
My wife got covid at same time and recently tested negative for antibodies.
Guess the people who got jabbed in Jan will have more in autumn.
Seems unlikely that spring jabs will be given in future.

Think it'll be like the flu jab , you get it in the Autumn, different variety each time.
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
