Hi there, have posted before but thought I’d say hello again.

We are progressing with our franchise model for secure off lead dog parks and have recently been featured on TV for our professionalism in improving and growing the sector. You can see the TV clip here .

With your help we are looking for land in Cheshire and across the Midlands and Staffordshire to drive down dog theft and keep our dog owners feeling safe and comfortable when out walking.

Land requirements:-

- Ideally located near a road with access.
- 10-15 acres.
- Can include a wooded area or stream, pool.

We have 5 years proof of our concept in a green belt area with full references available.

Willing to pay up to £1k per acre per annum.

Please do get in touch if it may be something of interest and I would be happy to chat further.

Thanks for reading.

Yes they got change of use.

As the farmer owns the land and will have to maintain the paddock and be the first port of call for disgruntled customers or have to fix the gate when the codes fail I’d want 75% of the income because all your doing is advertising it.
 
Dog field of 3 acres down road is paying 14k rent a year and thats cheap, given the prices charged i wouldnt be wanting land damaged in thst way for any less thsn 3k a year and given the tenure security a business like thst would need, id say 3k is fair

Hopefully you mean £3k per acre per year?

I’d be at 75% of the income which potentially could be £15,000/acre per year depending on area.

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

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...
