    Don't feel guilty over not paying tax directly, as you said your reinvesting therefore redistributing the coin, when we invested in the robots and associated infrastructure we knew our tax bill would be next to zero for a year or two, 2016 ensured that period extended somewhat but the money we invested was shared among alot of local contractors whereas paying a pile of tax wouldn't have benefited them one bit.

    Agreed leaving the tax on farm for the farmer to spend probably does far more for society than giving it to HMRC , we should be exempt !

    No but the tax would have been money spent in the uk how much of your spend was on kit from outside the uk ?

    Agreed but of the whole £500k, £200 k would have been spent with ”local” businesses

    With those two and the draff I would think you could easily challenge the girls to produce more from forage

    If you’ve got plenty of forage at that quality I’d suggest you’re nearly feeding twice as much concentrate as you need. (Your milk from forage must be negligible at 15kgs conc/31 litres milk?) Cut the cake a bit and you’ll soon start having to pay some tax.

    Using it to replace soya in blend, a molasses will be interesting. Nows the time to try cos Arla will be dropping price so better now than when we’re heading down the hill

    Depends on weather you see draff as concentrate or forage! 13 kilos if you see it as forage..I know but it’s hard to cut, our fertility is amazing at the minute, 150 days in milk almost 100 cows pd’d in calve out of 189 cows in milk giving currently just short of 32 litres, hate looking at all of your low cost systems I actually do but I’m living in a different part of the world from you boys,a low cost easier system getting 40 pence is ultra appealing

    Is it a bulk feed or a blend type? Is soya expensive? I heard soya was down and wheatfeed and this normally cheaper type products were expensive? I don’t track raw materials atol as you can see!
