What options do I have when trying to recover a debt? Can I just turn up on farm abd take something of the value I’m owed?
under £10,000 ? make a small claims court application - cheap and simple online

sadly you cant just take stuff from the debtor, don’t go getting arrested !

dont use agents, they are mostly scammers

Sadly not a lot if they are hardcore and lots of people are chasing them they'll know the rules far better than you and you'll find legal means are expensive and near useless. It's often cheaper to write it off. Otherwise try confronting them where they'd least like it to happen and if that doesn't work you've got to get devious but make sure you don't get caught because again the law is on their side.

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...
