Agribibs last for ages and grip like nothing else. As above, 480’s are nice.. so omnibibs are my choice there and cheap from Terry Elsey tyres.

Never seen the words cheap and Omnibib used in the same sentence before!!!!
Maybe a little more to buy, but I am getting over 8 thousand hours with 10% left on the front of the loader tractor. That seems cheap per hour.. and Grip and ride great. Not a daft front axle with a limited slip diff tho, then they only lasted 4K hours..

Only pulling your leg !!!!! I'm a firm fan of Michelin for the farm and the road....interestingly changed the front tyres on my 3 year old Toyota Landcruiser yesterday.....just clicked over 62,000 kilometres from new... mix of fast open roads and rough country unpaved or metal roads as they call them over here.....Michelin Latitudes...$490 each...Goodyear's $295 each... fitted the Michelin's!

Could a ‘Meat Tax’ be on the cards in the UK?

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
