    I know anthrax causes sudden death but not that sudden. She was perfectly healthy and eating concentrate with all the others 2 hours previously. If she was feeling crook she wouldn't have laid down in the sh!t by the silage feeder she'd have gone elsewhere on the clean straw, suspect heart attack or possibly got knocked over and trampled (one was also bulling).

    Yes 2019 is pretty crap so far! Slashed tractor tyre doing a favour for land lord, pick up engine has blown (warranty seems like it may be worthless at moment) & gimmer lambs been hammered by fluke despite being dosed

    I have very little motivation, I need to get on and complete 2 prototype machines but barely get out before lunch then have chores, work for about an hour or two per day if I’m Lucky. It’s no fun right now.

  8. I’m reading this sitting in pickup with one front wheel pointing in a different direction to the other, and had a trailer on. Luckily only a mile from home and neighbour and good friend already picked trailer up and coming back for me! Apart from that trying to chill out about all the jobs that need doing and work way through them without getting stressed.

    In the northern hemisphere it’s not even 2 weeks old :rolleyes:
    2018 was the worst year of my 35 years in farming so things can only get better (y)

    ......hopefully

    Its a bugger. The short daylight hours do not help, makes me want to hibernate. Sometimes you just have to make a deadline to start work and stick to it.

    It does feel as if bad luck comes in bunches. I find things potter along quietly for years, then major upheavals come along all at once to shatter your complacency. Also if you are feeling smug about your good fortune, something bad always happens to restore the balance.

    Bearing in mind that inspectors can check when you ordered tags.

    Really sorry to hear that, try and make some time for yourself when things have settled down a bit, that lot is sure to have an impact on you. Hope your Dad on the mend.
     

  16. Tbh, thinking of the natural situation for the likes of @Farmer Roy, a bit of political nonsense dreamt up by the NF seems an irrelevance

    Run them through the crush today... 24 tags missing out of 243 cattle . They allow you 20% and I will have 28 days to get them tagged. I already had some which has reduced it to 11 with tags missing so it's not too bad!
    Looking forward to a few Thatchers Haze tonight !
