Whatever they’ll eat is what I’ve discovered. No use getting the aniseedy flavoured one if they’ve got a taste for wheat/cattle grub. I’ve found the pasta based ones to work very well where stock feed is.

Thanks what’s the name of some of the pasta based ones?

we used Jade blocks from the Spaldings man..... was told at the time they were pasta but no mention of it when I just googled it so who knows! Anyhow, had an old calf shed that was riddled with rats and hung some blocks on a loop of the wire and it was carnage, place didn't half stink. They even nibbled a hole in the tub and helped themselves.

make sure the blocks are attached to something or else they carry them away, store them, and they go off and never get eaten.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
