1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    Came across these when having a tidy up. I know what they're off but wondered if there are any others out there who do.

    Ursus C385.
    No one quite got it but hard to tell which factory they would have come out of as Zetors had Ursus on some of their castings and vice versa.
    The weights were pretty much hidden all around the front end and got taken off when the tractor kept getting stuck while rotavating wet ground.
    In it's day I rated the C385 as a far better place to spend a day than the equivalent Fords or Masseys. The cab was flat floor and quiet with side gear sticks plus the splitter and PTO engagement were so much smoother than the British equivalents. Lots were sold around here but once all the other brands caught up with Q cabs they faded away.

    The Zetor 8011 and the Ursus C385 were basically the same tractor

    Mine have a little "notch out of each side , to slide in on a piece of angle inside each chassis rail. They came on the 12145 , but doubt if they were original to it.
    I had a purple Ursus 385 , but it hadn't weights fitted when I bought it .
