I’ve had a call this morning from the council, some one has complained about mud on road after hauling some digestate and three spreaders went along a lane this morning at about 10:30am


Said I’d go look and report back and when there bumped into the plaintiff, the manager of the golf course next door. She had a right moan and admitted she’d called the council and also the environment agency🙄.

This is the mud in road in question..............I kid you not!

I went back to see her and said there was nothing to worry about but she was adamant it needed clearing up.

I said I was not going g to and rang the council chap back and sent him the pictures...he burst out laughing as it had been described as “a river of sh!t”.

I told him he needed to have a word with the lady for wasting everyone’s time.

Now that her complaints will never ever be taken seriously by the council, does she have a car?

Might be worth getting a concerned citizen to report her to the polis as she's driving erratically past the primary school, weaving across the road

Don't get mad, don't get even, get ahead of the bugger
 
Had a daft woman Walking behind me as we got the ewes into the pens , through a gate it’s a sharp right , I shut the gate and got I from of the pack , no good for her she decided to just continue her walk opened the gate a d almost had 330 ewes back at her , the stupidity of folk is at an all time high, you don’t se me waking through towns kicking over bins and stopping trains just daft

Had APHA out to do a welfare check on my maternals last weekend. Someone had reported to the RSPCA “100s of sheep locked in a tiny field with no water, mostly lame and carcasses scattered everywhere”.

The ewes are in 3ha paddocks moved every 2 days, along with a drag trough of mains water. There’s some earlies lambing and a bit of scald as the grass is long (they’ve been wintered on cover crops). Said to the inspector I’d be gathering a foot bathing at the end of the month when this batch finishes lambing. She was an ex shearer and more than happy with stock and set up.

Obviously complaint was “anonymous“. I’d bet a lot of money is a neighbour who’s upset that my electric fence paddocks have put an end to their freestyle trespassing with numerous off lead dogs.

😂😂

Daughter picks up 4 or 5 hundred balls a year and sells them. Worst is the bloody golf clubs chucked over hedges.

That or the golfists climbing fences to retrieve balls and pulling the wire down...🤬
 
Never had golf clubs chucked over hedge - frustrated? - but the fence pulled down and golf balls - yes we have that , even if the fence destruction allows cattle or sheep on to the course . Golf balls , I keep one of our suppliers well stocked with golf balls , but she's now getting a bit picky about them , she likes only the top quality ones now , what are they , Top flite or similar ?

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.

While still awaiting a decision on the future by Ministers in England, Scotland and Wales, AHDB wants to reassure levy payers their views have been heard following recent ballots in the two sectors.

This work includes for example, export market access and promotional international trade event work, consumer marketing campaigns and market pricing and insight information.
