    Thanks for posting this, someone else recommended him (and his wife) as speakers as he is doing such interesting stuff. Good to see, very interesting

  7. How about Allan Savory himself? He won't be here forever...

    He’s on Twitter and pretty interesting, Loran Steinlage is another No-till farmer with a different approach to farming.

    Wow. That video of Derek was inspirational to a conventional notill farmer.
    He is amazingly doing what a lot of us might try on a few acres but large scale. Thanks for posting.

    I thought so its from a series of videos from youtube called Menoken Farm
  11. Has Jay Fuhrer been over? He's a very personable, he's tells a good story - not a farmer but a good extension officer.

    Funnily enough we're just negotiating with his bosses to see if he can come this year. Very interesting man and, as you say, tells a good story. I'm very excited at the prospect of having him over

    Yes, Jay fuhrer is a very good one who is sharing of sound experience. sort of sientific back bone of the Brown farm.
    has been over in D some years ago. For many topics he was tooo early to speak on. Good that things have developed further over here.

  16. Where in Luton? We're only 12 miles south of Luton and I plan on going both days again. I could probably detour to pick you up and drop you off.

    Silly me, you're in Northern Ireland so clearly Luton Airport. No problem though.

    It's probably about £35, Uber would be cheaper. But it's worth hooking up with BASE Ireland as there's normally a good contingent flying over. Or take up holwellcourtfarm's kind offer.
    It looks like we've got Allan Savory coming to speak this year, which is very exciting
