Brand new old liners

I recently ordered 20 sets of liners.when the box arrived I immediately was drawn to how yellow the stickers were on the box. Turned out they were 8 years old manufactured in 2012. I reordered a new set of liners from an online company in ireland.brand new manufactured in 2020. I subsequently phoned the local supplier to tell him there was a problem with liners and he could pick them up when he comes for a parlour service. He got humped that I didn't give him a chance to exchange liners. I gave him a chance. He sent a very outdated set that could of done untold damage to my cows with no recompense. Hes now a bit backward about doing the parlour service. Would anyone fit 8 year old liners

Any excuse given as to why you where given 8 year old liners?
 
the man was chancing his arm. They’ll probably end up in someone else’s yard.
Maybe he was, maybe he wasn’t, depends where those liners have been sitting for 8 years.
If they have been sitting at the manufacturers or anywhere in between the dealers they could have arrived at the dealers and he’d have no reason to suspect they were old stock and supplied them in good faith.

The strange thing here is that the op didn’t first contact the dealer , it would certainly have been my first reaction.
The fact that the dealer wasn’t the first point of contact when a problem was found along with the fact that the dealer is now reluctant to do other work would suggest a rather poor buisness relationship between the two, I can’t imagine such a situation arising with the dairy engineer I use, he would have been my first point of contact and I’m completely confident he’d have sorted it out swiftly and wiithout any problems about doing other work

Complete speculation and devoid of fact.

depends on how you get on with him, does he do your breakdowns ? if yes, you should have talked to him, at the very least. Breakdowns, are notoriously out of hours.

Early moves to target wild oats

  • 693

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
