Dai Jones broke my tractor!!
That could be a headline from the front page of the Sunday Sport! Right up there with Freddy Star ate my hamster
Although I don't read that muck.. might have done when I didn't know any better..
Bobk They can if they have something sensible and interesting to say.
By sitting on it!!
It was a little Pedal Tractor that Santa brought me once, Mr Jones sat on it one day, the back wheels gave way under it...
Dad fixed it though!
Me too. I'm not usually shy but stick a camera in front of me and I just forget everything I wanted to say. I have great respect and admiration to those who can do it.
So Dai obviously has fairground mirrors in his house then, those that make you look stick thin.
Anybody remember the episode where Dai " helps" to load export tractors ( Ford 3000 / MF 135's etc ) onto a lorry ? Nearly ended badly IIRC ?
He's pretty clumsy by all accounts. I thought it was put on for the camera to start with but apparently he's really like that. And sh!t scared of cats.
Fferm factor, I'm pretty surprised that Prof Wynne Jones has agreed to work on what basically is a game of "it's a knockout" with some pretty basic farming general knowledge quiz mixed in, that some of the contestants, and none of the other presenters know the answers to off the top of their heads. We can't watch it to be honest, it's w4nk. The scope is there for Prof Jones to present a practical programme looking at different farming systems in Wales, efficiencies and cost cutting etc, he'd ace that, it's more befitting of a man with his industrial experience.
And electric fences.
" Fence of doom "
Mate had Dai round, and said he was pretty uninterested off camera, nor very talkative either. Dai's seen it all though, best stock, shiny tractors. Cefn Gwlad in the 80's and early 90's was about country characters, genuine folk. As I've said on another similar thread is Cefn gwlad is just "look at me and how I spend my SFP" a lot of the time these days.
I doubt he said that about my low input easycare goat like sheep, running on Feg environmental grass land....
Did he mention that his nephew has a flock of Easycares on the farm next door to his? Probably one of the best flocks in the country.
No to be honest, I hardly spoke as I was sat on the combine for the 2 days, but we did have a good drink on the final night with dai and the camera crew....but not a lot of farming was talked about.
Is this nephew you?
@willy how do you go about being on Kevin Goolad? did you offer, were you nominated, or did they just find you?
Not that I want to be a celebrity, but am interested how it came about...
No, his nephew is John Davies who regularly has the highest price for tups in Worcester. One of the nicest and funniest people you'll ever meet.
Never new that, I have a couple of his rams aswell...
I don't know, I think when they filmed my father in law, and he mentioned that he had a daughter Farming in Rutland, Dai wanted to speak to her.
