Anyone know a rough price to upgrade a I/R remote control to radio?
Has your main control box got the radio software installed? It can be added by RDS but will cost but easy firm to deal with and easy to speak to and send box to and they will return it. If the box has been repaired recently by RDS then it will have the new software providing it’s an RDS box of course.
Aerial and controller were around £300 a few years back from McHale I seam to remember but a friend bought via RDS cheaper.
PS I do not work for RDS but have found them helpful when had problems.

If the software to take a radio remote is installed it should be visible via scrolling the menu on the main box so easy check to see if an update is needed

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...
