Mass Trespass?

The trouble is that the tactics used by XR and other militant groups are, by their very nature, designed to create conflict and ergo, will never resolve the issues these groups claim to want resolved.

But they don't want the issues resolved, they (like football hooligans years ago) are just attaching themselves to something as an excuse to cause disruption.

I asked XR recently why they did not support the ammendments to the agri bill as it could have directly infuluenced how food is produced at home and abroad. Interstingly they say because they are not interested in change by influencing policy and do not even propose solutions.

Do they chant "What do we Want? We don't know"

Presumably they will carry on protesting for ever as they will not know when their aims have been met?
 
Is that the biggest landowner in Dorset whose family wealth came from the slave trade Drax?
I have several friends who are employees of the estate and it seems generally well run and a reasonable place to work. I have heard of far worse places to work, including smaller farms. The local environment seems well managed too, at least better than it would be if the anarchists were running the show. My only connection otherwise is that my family were long term tenants in the 19th century and were given work in the hungry '40s building the infamous wall around the park. In normal times, we take part in the estate quizzes which raise funds for the various churches in the area. Having seen last year what the public can do to the beautiful Dorset landscape when let loose, I'm glad there are plenty of corners that are out of bounds. Behind so much of the current activism is facebook envy and covetousness.
 
thought they stopped that years ago
East Dorset was given a special exemption under the Treaty of Utrecht, at least that's what Mrs Fred tells me. :rolleyes:
I don't think it is a secret that they have plantations in the Caribbean. as far as I know they are employing lots of alive and well 21st century folks out there too. Life as a worker in Dorset pre 1830 wasn't exactly a bed of roses but there is no point in victimising ourselves on behalf of ancestors we never knew we had until Ancestry came along.

My Farmwatch WhatsApp group is pinging away with XR alerts of masked Crusties everywhere. Apparently the Mass Trespass was postponed until today?
 

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...
